from The Offers

The Snow

Right now I’m the cart


Falling from this distance
Falling from my face
and not falling at all

Face falling off the edge of the face

value falling off the edge of the face



15

Then I constellate my time family country
reasons resources
in a sharp upward turn

where I sleep at times

asynchronous

slow



16

I brought my head down
I brought my qualities down
in a continuous vertiginous dream

I brought my head down
I brought my qualities down
in a continuous theme

I put my bread down
I brought my count down
I put my head down



Off The Edge of the World

I am first in the office
to be before the sun


Then the sun isn’t available
on the bandwidth I was on



The Sun Isn’t Up

I speak to them my possessions
and move them literally with me

back up through the results
out of remnant pages


I was advised to rewind higher up

where I can claim to see the moons


to see the patterns on the birds
to see the sunrise
