In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:


You caryatids,hive-like heads shadowing

the infant’s nails, eyelashes,every of-its-own-accordformed perfectly thing

the sound of onethe sound of two beesat the hive opening

interjectingthese dials the sun still circles

you watchfrom the words the fallen leaves catch rain as ifstill waiting

for some identification. [End Page 104]
