Word Flight

Saint Paul, 11 December 2007

Schedule a phrase
to lift off the page
so readers live open space
with fullness

Be fastidious about
the architecture of human-ness
so readers live open space
with emptiness

Examine imprinted fields below
the time, space, and motion
the cloudless choreography
of unconsidered words

When the phrase arrives
feel the weight of a journey
pick up your punctuation
at the baggage claim
