If the night comes

underneath cloud
courses the end

to refresh
within marks of rain

to fly night

but nervous with

constant loss
in direction

that beginning
strength, sky

these lists verify
storm, tolerance

pretty commerce
exceeds everything

the interior moors
traffic, writing it

castrati, tremolo
whirrs of construction

a fine strap of sweat
sighs and nerves

and the jokes
green ones

to each morning's expenses
slowly, exactly

everything rigid, hurt
distant protection

moved far
from lucent cut noon

the lobby quiets
the fist's mark

ashes leached
of the original rose colour

a zone of another way
raises light

elasticity is
more than advisable

to distil payments
of the hour
