Excerpt from Dissolve
A bottom-lit sea ponders the lake’s questions,
their secret conversations
thatch howls to whimpers exhaled
from an isthmus of drowned wolves.
Its glossary’s cataclysms
smoothed over the hatchet
tucked into a sheath of starlight
locates fractures potted in cisterns of smog.
The stitching then unthreads
to muzzled worms pulsing
where an arsonist begins to lather heat over his neck.
Backlit by a caravan of wailing fathers
he silences their smeared faces
while kneeling in an arbor of mesh and steel.
Nowhere streams in blips and beeps under them.
