ONE HUNDRED ACRES (RE-ENTRANCE)

fraction-clotted
this re-read

this pedigreed English double

old serum surfeit new
Who-Bear entered

One Hundred Acres

lawn-clotted, the green of am-bushes
Aren’t gory Are tautegory

am-bushes, these woods
[I] knows, blistered

AM something
else, early

like petals of
mushroomed bullets

extended chokes / trunks
& palm-swell

soft-recoiling

One Hundred Acres

leafy, extended chokes
gloss-finished

 

 

 

At least there is an immanence of trees, thought Who-Bear.
