    dotsmy father taught me to kill the sunflowerdots
    -------------------------------------------


    the angles not right...
    i see moonlight drift off
    the outer membrane,
    the pink of it,
    the place
    where algae catches
    in the corona
    of your lost eye
    remembering everything.

    plays of the tongue
    twirl off
    the milky surface
    of the skin.
    god,
    the cells of it
    make their way
    through time
    & space
    to green nowhere.

    through the mud
    & the endless happy
    mulching,
    i make my way
    through a forest
    souping itself
    into a liquid bliss.
    the leaves catch
    in the undergrowth
    of my inner birth.

    in my palm
    the sunflower murmurs on
    in low whispers
    that even birds can't hear.
    there is something wrong
    with this place.
    each breath
    brings no resolution.
    i've seen you all
    sprouting stalks
    & snowflakes,
    gnashing heather
    with your teeth made of corn.

    i plant you
    beneath the oaks
    to linger
    through my words,
    lost in the insects
    that constantly eat me.
    & i've managed,
    somehow,
    to have never seen
    your leaves
    before they brown.
