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
