Full Text:
That scribbly gum is acting out again, throwing its fruit, forcing
itself to appear; the vertical fins outside the library window
can't stop striping the scene with dorsal light, shades of all
types filtering the loss of that blossom you twirled between your finger
and thumb; collage and cut-ups can only mean one thing: what we're
half-seeing through this collagen opening is not what we'd hoped;
just another Eucalyptus
      Haemastoma
, calibrating the thrill of the cut and paste
