for Alan Halsey
in sets and stitches. sequences.
the like and supportive sequences.
a cup or horn or root
are beam and fairly lantern.
welcoming. accompany. readily.
a palm or seat or provocation.
propers, pierced. oh dear.
the robin sings,
this bear is the color of bread pudding
and this bear is the set of all the bears
of all the bears the color of bread pudding.
and is born, oh dear. another
as yet undiscovered, unremembered poet.
