How we negotiate textual distance
the hurtling close-up intensity brings
or a protracted remarking of the singular
words refer to language's distinction
where and wherein we place context is our own
statement's trust a hand defines
contours as the edges disappear
coalescence dances not as image but is movement
intricate and direct questions in space
phrases aren't  strung serially
but as with Chinese boxes stacked one inside another
sound of quiet between the writing
or any utterence spills
what might be, could be, said as speech
