P O E T-rye Formulae

Vinegar

On truth, a branch,

birds roost at points, as would be written,

to sky-depart, start arc to their flight’s sequence-formation.

Tawny the nettles, by fall’s Aurora.

Imitation prophets – shepherds who count them

time fermentation to the murmuration of their migration.


Lavender Vodka

Round the crest to the curve of the filter,

lavender as new sheep gathers.

Lamb-flock forms a mauve kind of purple.

Waits slow-sand, stem of glass bottle.

Window cacti keep time from their sandbox:

they count sun risings.
