from Elsewhere & Wise
There by the knee by the creek
you bend to again.
I want to unfold the weekday of heaven
and stuff something else
where your bending your knee eludes me.
The heft of the silk we call creek
is no where here but as
The countdown began yesterday, small enough.
A number that dips as did
your bending, a hymn your knee steals.
It doesn’t really have to have
a stopping. Doesn’t have.
