Thou Drewest

For you the moment is close incredible

with vodka & cherries float nitrogen

three disparates

we drank the sea until indelible

burned until the sunup, and androgyne—

until we cicatrix

 

somehow there is a mirror in me to we.

Perhaps little and obvious though

muddy metal

Thou Drewest what Thou Drew: study and see

we weren’t there in all after or so

thought settles

 

A cover won’t heal us, mean you, a salve

And how, any webster is a woman

a man a psaltery

instructions, would there were, for our scabs

easy as laundry tags

tumble dry low use thee no iron

                                                  only cold water
