in the mirror save clouds
nor the key and the woman
nor the girl and the moon
nor the blindingly human
nor the shard for the tune

and the hill for the crescent
and the pond for the scale
and the continuous present
and the smile save the braille

in the table save billows
in the mirror save clouds
in the triumphant pillows
in the bib it's the shroud

it's the same now the ebbing
it's the time now the most
it's the estuarine webbing
it's the girl and the ghost
