from brim terrain


Thinking breath
not burial but
force –

          warp
in the aquifer’s
whirlout,

the chambers
flooded, warmth,

remaining air –

had been water-breathing
and had held
breath –

had not thought
burial, not
of –

nor of interment’s
dumb-time fleshed
through –

durations of
the tomb –
