with apologies to Padgett Powell
if you could catch a swallow
or swallow a ketch,
which would work for you?
the way language wends its way thru us
is still mysterious & twisted
by “inner” logic unknown
the thought to word movement
is unfathomable. do you search
for the word & no one works at times?
as the “trains go by the screen”
we reach out into the unseen
to create that which you then see inside
