the white rabbit is pulled, revealing a blue kidney

and preserved fishes

rather than unicorn,
we headdress almost nothing
of importance:  September 1999

I'm afraid I'm telling the story 
all wrong.:  what I feel I know 

now is not what I knew 
at various time:  the war 
is on us.  like chairs

falling over.  gone dotty.
this great business of love:
I've the hiccups—I 

mean suspension, suspicion.
it's suspect to sit down and lean
against someone else.  what

if gravity loosed and we found ourselves?
