intersection of vine & trapeze
the white substance poured
from her mouth last night
jug tipping spilling onto tile
eye that repeats itself in conversation
with other eye
sleep less suspenders
another gift from Aunt Jinny
neighbor plays cello
The Swan floats through silk drapes in hallways
extreme isolation exerts a person
radio between stations
