I…

ilr

 

 

i

 

had it

there – hoverfly to

sudden-flowering brain – what

 

it is – what this is

all to do

with

 

just

behind what

draws things to – almost a

 

scent – beyond – yet so

close as to gauze

it – only

 

just

beneath as

green bass-notes ripples

 

beside

 

enough to snag the eye till

it darts & i all

most

 

had it

– or what makes

thought sticky – these stamens

 

alert for one opening   but

lost in grasping i

lost

 

silence & in its

sound the

petal

 

fall
