small thoughts thinking of —         by Max Wolf Valerio


slingshot integers


                        on fire


           books amazed by the moon –


an elephant familiar as a couch


               with deliberation through glass



        what does it mean?

                                an observation of mind

        low slung chatter –   footsteps echoing and translucent beneath stars


the way she observes the funnel

filling with

                                                small parts –
