happily (as happenstance) a sentence

mere formalities brush off a pilgrim
on the shoulder singular
with tension fraught

least sum of sacronym
and virtue voyage
plum cut rapt

a boy goes home his home
immerses him in loverboy
type wilderness

the daylight caught in
someone's coat and stored
is framed a gentle overplay

his house the fingers
and headlines the lighter
sort of font beneath

his velvet greeting
and the work that came before
his turquoise flush of eyes
