bell/a ring grows around rosie-o

whosoever is desired

is most surely 

lost

 

in the interregnum of

the-in-between — o'-where-o

of the fixity of past/flux of memory:

bereft

amidst bijou

the chiming chatter

 

— ruddy

hem hem-

atite — retracting stars/a

willow. the belted kingfisher

clatters

 

(water/grass)

in exult of bird bones/n'salty-rime —

this regnal auroral . . .

 

(amidst

chiming chatter

the chittering chimes

clamor — after all what

matters?)

 

the toll 

for thee — knell/

the chiming chatter.
