Six-hundred seventy-nine



missing days friday what is a man

purposeful person painting silk

trading north every sin open and committing

city hall voting ruin and foul

dead air



missing love

purposeful desire and palsy play

lapsing every ticking here

and, of course, there



what is a woman

purposeful missing line doing and undoing

past participle coward and candidate

donating in kind future and present stake

apart from language

all we are yet
