invertebrate epyllia
by Michael Helsem

incumbent upon me not
& yet it is
how can things be more the same
than they are different
this winter light
wish lists

there were joshua trees
boojum trees
some lost december
or january
& that light

song or a cover of the song
or a version of the empire
words woven
like cocoons a spider's prey

for what it will turn into
