               chick peas, seeds,
                    : I eat nouns
                      like air

(substantial at the ends
                       of the day, a window
               to look back from

—some green
                                 (not artificial)
                              for once

                   and not again—nation
                  supplants its principles,

“change” from act
          to thing, an export

     as want or
                    bombed-out haze


full of air is empty,
     but lungs
           don’t refract

             words are corners
            or fenceposts

something is clear?  then
it can’t be seen.
             what’s known
     is noun, then gone
