“I think you are confusing subject and object, she said
Very likely, said Geryon“–Anne Carson, Autobiography of Red

love flows like air
about you
the way a cat
chases bits of light
about the room
the sentence marching
from margin to margin
what comes first
subject predicate object
lined up like roman soldiers
instead of air
about leaves
as it becomes the tree
I hear at night
how the cat moves
the house
the shadows
of the moon
(May 2012)
