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

I sit with my back in my hands, turned
against everything. I’m facing what I think

is the wind. It has the eyes I’ve sought,
the skin I’ve felt under stone. It has

the sound of only and a wrist of land.
I can smell it calling through swirling

birch. And when I reply, my voice
estranges me, praises this blindfold

of world across my eyes. Dark felt
making my eyelashes bow. What I find

here will be represented, broken
and exposed. What I say will have ruin

value contained in the breath of a body
that is maddeningly whole.
