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

The sticks of the yarrow plant
composed the universe
and left it breathing through sixty-four mouths.

In other worlds the thirst for marvels
filled cabinets and hot air balloons
and left naked men sleeping on beds of nails.

The deep past is summoned in a circle
and sacrificed with a ram.
