The trees are full of adjectives

a face like an elephant’s
slowly falls apart in your binoculars

what about the zoning laws?

but they rub themselves all over the tree with those legs

a thousand to the bottle

one by one you might tie them to hooks

a loose sac unravels
in the stomach and the revival begins


the perfect birth stone

Alas, it’s the clock of the world

a candle burning

where the gears should be
