Shame

Shame+Snapshot.jpg

Shame
is the stalk
rigid, and the steel
flesh, and the red burning

mouth, throat,
heaving stomach,
sumac and briar; that

death
is better.

That's how it knows you -

- the fist
pointed finger:

it
is bone, is

blood, em-

bod-

ied.

The stalk

The

nerveroots the

fieldgrass
follicles worldturn

and
turn on the
lightsick chlorophyll.

The fist,
turned pointed finger,
the arm extended lights

stalk
turgid steel
skyward. Matchstick girl
I know; am; am against you.
