Eurydice's vision, by JKD

After Sarah Larivière's Turnstiles and Rainer Maria Rilke's VII Orpheus, Eurydice, Hermes in the translation by J.B. Leishman (1976 publication by Hogarth Press, London)

And there, winding through the silver-ored darkness in need of a glimpse
palm up

fish-eyed, cateracted blue-hued no more than a bulb’s pivot seeking sight
the needlepalm

the napalmed blossoming orange-red flair of –up—and—this—and she, centerfolded,
wraps, palm-frond

emerges into the jilted sage spread-eagled lip pelvic opened canister of pornography,

a sentence(d) akin to the stem or coat-tails collar in the act of being carried off

stuck at the catch threshold ground–surfaced mustard yellow in the potting shed torn
snapshot palm of  

her-rooted sound of heavy porphyry in the darkness’ red red rudding of to see just
her palm

held single twistered pathway round turning unto and back to and recalling silk-smoothed

reached out towards near tactile field-space breathed into contact’s untouching festered

night underworld sword-shrouding length of sheathed castoff to be stretched, carried upwards
over Avernus’ palm

then backtripped, she's returned to thickspun cocoon ear-muffled silence undersnow, re-grounded here in her,

Who... by JKD

After Amanda Deutch's At Home and a conversation with Michelle Noteboom

Who would I be
if I were
right now
in Brooklyn?
Wanting to just be
a little farther north
the aurora borealis
and a green
as a cat’s eye aglow
unlike now
in the basement
for the twister’s

turnstiles by Sarah Lariviere

After Jennifer K. Dick's Glint

palm up
in the dug lawn,
bulbs pivot (in-on)
the needlepalm

-- up


is in a magazine, the centerfold
jilted sage (sage) SAGE pornography,
into focus, silvergreen

(sentence)collar in the act of being
carried off

mustard in the potting shed
