  1. Blank forms died. Dead is the drawbridge.
  2. The shadow died. Hands
  3. died. Sometimes the sun shines upon my
  4. back across the tablecoth. We move
  5. silver cups. Dead is the golden sea. Plants
  6. died. They rolled into the scroll and
  7. hastened away. You kiss temporarily.
  8. The earth. Guanajuato. Lean
  9. on the landing. When the boat ran over
  10. you and you rebounded, on the other
  11. side of the sea a faun silenced the
  12. number four. The peasants’
  13. fingers started to rot for a row of
  14. years. Moguls laid down roses.
