I’m great at mental arithmetic which they say is a strange thing for a writer to be but to me it’s all the same thing. Words and numbers: underneath them both there’s an invisible foundation of pictures.
blue moon I isolate the remaining variable
10 years without fire
full two hours
the compass in view
the sky lost
over 50 percent of these mountains
you carry face upward
in the morning one live deer
such injuries are called wounds
this imagined world.
