ECHOES DRAWN UPON A POINT
and when you have left the room
who has gone
and when you have pivoted slyly
down the hole
who is still with me
caught again misbehaving
as if thought could lean
against the shoulder of a chair
and curl inside the fleshy pulp
of wood spinning in the mind
neither yours nor mine but subjectivity
sans subject traveling the open circuit
Ariana Reines is author of Coeur de Lion (2011), MERCURY (2011), The Cow (2006),
