(as vanish, unespecially) by Morgan Lucas Schuldt



Plainsong (For Two)

Botch or not,
this body

(so troped for)—
how hapless

& hand-to-mouth
each day has it.

Botch or not (or
mess of fix),

how, marrow-casually,
you’ll’ve

loved it
most. Its lasting.

Its ravel-song
sung thew—O

butcher reds,
O offal proof

!  This
descript despite,

a half-riddance
slowing, now,

from purpose.
Slowing how

to dististances

(up | room |
| down | room).

The lent relenting
merely to relate

merely

under scar-lights.
Linen-long.
