Edgar Garcia, from Boundary Loot

the wind is a canoe on the sea
said under my breath
seeing neither the sea
nor a canoe nor the wind

but a multiform pressing down
              on the waves

        to make the waves
over which some invisibility moves

maybe it is like that
       maybe not

it could be that one is a strand
lengthways on a cloth
crossed by another
sagging under a heavy weight

like paper under ink
like stone under the beating light

the light’s tail is also a snake
and the snake
opens out to the water
       so I wrote
the wind is a canoe on the sea
