Horse Down

First house
thrumming cuts

a lick of leafy

blood fleeing
indexed shunned

then shapeless
rain to follow

shoehorned supple
for inquests

parsing lassitude
of floodplain

after essence
a boll weevil

pervaded tintype
of Zeno of Elea

brushing hairs
to revitalize

cloying bang
of grammar

staid Semite’s

with incidental
night prose
