1. I hear the vigor and turn, in time, to see moonrise.
  2. Recognition cinders so quickly to semblance.
  3. Blackens into a blind-spot.
  4. Lie down in the grass, let dusk’s moisture soak inside my machinations.
  5. The flit of a sparrow, a flint-struck spark my eyes involuntarily shy from.
  6. How long to let perception fledge?
  7. A fluid attention lets instinct turn, quick as a lizard’s eye.
  8. Heard the ardor with which pebbles perfect their shape under my feet.
  9. Sudden, between shrubs, set high and plumped:
  10. a fox’s tail, a first language.
