'a gap, invisible in the photograph (Lover's Leap)'

to hear imperfectly
this bay : opening
as grey lines, as colourless
light and wide
shifting in the body
axis : keying an actual sun
in forests' verticality : in solar re
verberations before
such rushed
suddenness of field : set
the devouring o-
zone depleted opening
in myriad capillaries,
dilating light & wide :
at the abandoned port,
the sea's rages range
relation, flats
to peaks, black
calm to tumultuous
blue : can such flatness
of affect be a level
of whisper : how
to locate among
columns, among names,
such loud leaning
in doorways, a wish
for blanking
the eye's notebook?

cloud-parted grass
spines threading the eye's
trust toward water,
reverberating in each step
a season, releasing
a thrown momentary
confetti of burnt orange
Lepidoptera, decentring
myriad shadows, scrolling
at ferns' slowness :
a crisp wheeling inside
what is hoped,
what is happened, the path
silenced and settling
uneasily, again in these
greens, the eye
unhinges : fills, a gap
that is also all
that is here :
