[for jorie]

maybe it's an issue with vocabulary
dark with dialect and black hair, playful
the dictionary kicks up at the puddle
suddenly smaller

stack of books, covers & titles marrying
praise & anti-pith — on balance
from here with perfect warmth of gravity
concept quaint, quiet and quick
the common cold caught in a napkin
like the human condition, we mustn't cure.
