After the Labyrinth

From: Colorado Review
Volume 40, Number 1, Spring 2013
p. 131 | 10.1353/col.2013.0008

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

          this turn to turn again returns
              the twine unwinding wan
      light going lateness ways ruffling
up dusts along the walls and absence obeys
    a slow hypnosis circling
      sandpaper and brick stitchwork running
      near nearer
        forward now draw
inward on prints and traces that lie lying laid astray
  sifted down the narrows with trips
        rough gaits and slants on the camber
      curved of intervals angling
  edges at the interminable
    in-between of two outstretched hands
        and a palpable sense of losing
