shovel-stuck-in-dirt 

“We live between walls.

We inhabit conditions we term chance,

Sequence, and agency, this is a place where things

Happen, we can say “on that date things.”

 

  • Lyn Hejinian

 

and things do– daily,

happen, but only just

out of site, some else

not you, not me, not

a place nearby, only

just away unnoticed—

still, close to claim

a space, not your you,

but some other coheres

as now, then, the same

depends so much

upon another word

as sound to change

a difference only

just enough to care

which box where

you’re shoveled

with other things

until gone and things

do daily without you
