NEW INTELLIGENCE ~










1
   



Stars

are the campfires

of exiles.



 

Language exists

to pull things

close.

 



*

 


Stop that!

 

Communications

are being monitored.

 


Collusion is forbidden.

 


Humanity

will be punished

 


with the profusion

of new jargons.

 


2

 


Inverted glass,

a white cup

invents the underworld.

 



*

 


Fog thins

to chiffon,

 


nylon,

 


Easter.

 



*

 


In the universe next door,

I'm gone

 


and the shadows

of the leaves

 


of the elm I had pulled down

 


still make a fuss

over the earth.
