the rootedness of our shadows

7.

The rooted-ness of our shadows, gauged with

need, purpose: we flow red along the sides

of buildings, under all this pressure, un-tracing the fire

which we race upwards to extinguish—the padlock

the gasket, faucet-jet, the fly wheel of hydrogen,

helium, carbon, neon, trace iron—the shadow

of the yellow dwarf in which we see ourselves against the wall.
