another short history of l.

christopher columbus discovered little
but the loyalty

of a worthwhile publicist;
this new world trembles

to begin

you sleep in sepia, a quilt
of undiscovered countries

& decades of land claim

there are nouns that we know
& those

that won't save us

you are peeling a lemon
down like an onion

forgive me

at the edge of the stone
is a mark

at the edge of the mark
is a daydream

what is it you wanted
to know
