for Lisa Fishman

 

 

 

twenty second paper comb

tattoo apostrophe plural

& fewer than orchard oriole

orchard oriole furrow

 

furrow rows & hands collapse

sisterly quince & Douglas fir

currant throated clover fold

& suddenly light soaks

 

the comb to seal & measure

as many wasps as will fit

 

& scold notes northern harrier

meddle clouded sulphur mint

to spot the spots of pollen

& ruby floating twenty third
