the craft of sentence is place-
marker between sentience and
the construction of myths/
how concrete is a lower
caste to tooled gold
and morning robin and worm
are scorned by war-monger hawk
alighted on up-drafts

power to deconstruct quickly/
power to initiate laws for behaviour

but you said/say the small
things/describe in bite-
sized bits/so this morning/
lying in bed/sun revelation
to a grackle chorus/these birds
blind to history/I looked behind
your curtain of ‘if you really loved me’/
saw the winches and the sweat/
your struggle to be powerful
