She kisses the knees. like rich tinkerers
came knocking them down, to preserve his soul.
Coco hardly paid the others, dreaming
surrounded by fickle music, and freckles.

Even when argentinosaurs' don't call

For Daniel Walter Rowlands
I move differently. She backs away
to get into their bulrush binding. She

For Pilar Ramírez Tello
She will rush home with me to kill my energy
into a photograph, trying to brightside
her at you. She would be okay. But she
was nothing but aware enough to me.
