languid summers in winter’s prime.
content flecks in anatomical dead space.
shielded by stout oak; by its green breeze brace
Shriek, shrill, wake, alarm!
Winter’s full force, summer cut abrupt.
A flurry of grain, of cloth, of feet
off to receive lectures at dawn.
A vesicle ferried across a ford
-a rouleau through a thoroughfare, anastomosis.
In each, the thought of a circumflex
-back to cytoplasmic summers; to balms in winter’s prime.
Set point disrupted in this tin can,
below vital capacity well into term;
anatomical dead space in its own right,
and learning of erythrocytes.
Alpha, beta, gamma, delta.
Return me to my green breeze walls.
