Lily Harris

Untitled (a jealously stabbing word from a repertory hat)

who says?
plagiarizers who say
who is writing this?

the owl on a wire
telegraphing mouse words
morsels to swallow some
sensation of wholeness
in the throat.

Interlingually devising
capture tactics
a grammar invented after
paint-stroke after
legs running .
sun setting .
in the Fusang tree .


articulation is water
cresting on a pebble,
definition is friction
on the palate of the mouth 口
red tongue striking thought
of want to aspirate
“O” .kou
the sound of wind leaving.
