Thursday, Mild Evening, from the misunderstood Chinese poet
The Watchman’s rattle. Used to bind, to tie.
Used for the sound. The lining of the shoe,
hip bone. An example, from the above,
a register of a love which means two things,
To read or to row a boat.
A tent. A stick. An octopus.
Only two of its legs mean the number eight.
I can hear the Lover’s tears.
A mountain turns on its ribs and sniffs the air
And sees us: two boats fastened side by side.
