AUGURY

her   dress   curls  into  its
weightless body, bringing
secret to sound.

___________his shell falls
away to wax,  to swarm  &
whisper.

_______hear her curse: her
failure to separate the scent
of man from father.

________________all cilia,
pollen,    desire    irrelevant
when blood conducts heat.
