'photosynthesis (fragment)'

the scene
is made. un-
made : with waiting

light, geometries
walls &

open in
the morning
of things : like

slow errands, trees
reach from there
to hear, leaf

the silence
in groups :
their patient phloem-

walled fore-
stallings : a library
too slow to see :

how much this scene
has been
rung down

through itself : a forest
of listening
lyre mimicry,

a bower’s canopy
marks out a clearing,
a vein, a vein

leafing blue
in the sunlight : these
timings are

their own walls :
they are just enough
to stand

against, as
houses, as tables, as
paused events : now

their trees
have stopped :
