Possession -- Laynie Browne

After twice revolving the sun, his world contains moments embracing only two beings

He may reach them both by addressing the -- 'you'

His-- 'I' a mild projection which circumstances navigate

All action occurs within this-- 'you'

the present conception,

his purpled exploration of summer foliage

He kept her within a green box containing a mirror, a rose, a cloud of water and a cloud of smoke

Lips mark his growth

(comely to reply in tones of setting stone)

between portraiture and possum
