Excerpts from the book, pages 5 to 8

Hands put back 

together the Crow's skull

Breaking star dust

         from a cosmic universe

Licking       Lichen

       ancient      Satyricon's

              erect cold stone penis

Waits for the black bird

to settle on its tip.

                                                   

 

There's memory in shapes

they ask to be honored.

Pieces fit together. But

even without that

there is mechanical motion.

The spiraling brew of life

Makes us all feel a little

like God.

                                           if my wings were only meant to fly

i would

           not

                  fall

        out of the sky

        into the water

                                                  my fins, scales

                                                my

                                                      fish

                                                             tail

                 like an autumn leaf

                                            the wind : fragrant, salted and warm

                          the same below is above.

if

      my

                  wings

                               were

                                          only

                                                      meant

                                                                   to fly

                                                there would be no difference between

                      the water and the sky
