. . . . How clean
the brain is,
holy grave. it's this girl
by Piero
della Francesca, unbuttoning
her blue dress,
her mantle of weather,
to pass into
labor. Come, we will move in.
It is before
the start of god. No-one
has risen yet
to the museums, to the assembly
line bodies
and wings to the open air
market. This is
what the dwelling do: move in.
It's a protracted way.
And the gown retains opening
from eternity
to privateness, quickening.
Inside, on the heart,
is tragedy, the current moment
forever stillborn,
but moving into, each one breath
is a button
coming undone, whatever terribly
nimble-fingered
finding all the stops.
