On Pharmakos Farm

Pain, join in my song
Flossing loopholes
Neath the spiny tree
For time has difficulty
Rolling uphill:

Nothing consecutive
On cloud-imitated mountain
Cluster and
White flashes
On the backs of birds
The sound of cinnamon
What you get
On pharmakos farm
No cooling herb
In bloodless flowers
At the bottom of summer
Paper hearts
