Derrick Mund


like the earth keeps on

like a place

lacking its geography

because it does not have a place,

a tactic

depends on time

it is always on the watch

for the practice of everyday life

   is a consideration of place

On that note;

can this anvil be a thrush

of the laurel

opening in your sternum,
