birds trellis the white. fine lithe song in vines that hold wood. photographs line inner wall. pale other than the song. elastic music. hear the mood be true. repaired by rote. the roots indigenous. plants leave sufficient air within a room. the atmosphere robust with scent, with taste. the hurt on rough skin. plain as caught plain air. trim wild place. trim light land appearing at first soft. one wanted that. one limbered up for what's to come. the smooth long water forming depths. to distinguish between one shade of blue and then another. to record what's left. there are repressed as lanky fall. leaves crushed beneath footsteps. pressed to earth. where stones. the planted whereabouts of home.
