This: a man on fire running quite fast
through the ground floor
of a house

This: an umbrella falling
from an upstairs balcony
landing on its tip

sewing machine

the fiddle carved from the tree
is not the tree
but is of the tree
I await the flock of birds
and their guide
the Morwā

one to the other
looking for some weather to gather
my stomach churning

Panning the air above me
a passive act

the cloud held above overhead
until its droplets change
from staccato random
to rolling torrent, soaking
the head, the face, the desk, the head
the desk

I strain the paper blots
     and holds
     and holds

holds all that I
