Sample poem:

Birth Windows

When Borso d’Este (below) died of malaria
inexact words were mined, and the block lightened
in tumbling. Down. A reversal of tuna
on stun, sighs. O mother of nacre

chipping the baby away to disclose seeds of rock
is it not thus and through this the fearful alter
id should establish kinship in across?

Mine is the one that mirrors the one that alters

the screw-pine, pandanus or breast/fruit symbol
tamed in the body of which I arrange transfer
of liquids.
Cupping, I rearrange water.
I saw you expecting me.
