Family

Sun the green lemon into sweetness.
Twist off the branch, the long
Grain stripped past the point of breaking.
Who will stay with the wound,
Put their ear to tissue of the pulse?
Gained: not root, branch or worm divided.

Knife

Goodbye rock of the cradle,
Blade of the foot.
Put you in my head.

Death

Passage undecipherable,
High-hat or cymbal
Calling all memory of care.
