Nomenclature

you float

half the time

and the other


you sink

it's just that way now

and you see things


that make

no difference

but mean everything


you turn and look

there it all is

and no one else is around


tree limbs like

mounds of bones

and you pick all of them up


carry them to

places behind

things


the greenest shadows

the blankest day

you mean well


every stick and twig

every nerve-ending

every spine


all the way back

to before you

knew, before you lost


then back out

into the world

searching for two hours ago


stupid scribbles

on a wall

in your head


names for things

evaporate

and then it's this


you don't know
