the natural work of the living

animals
slow down
in
paper worlds

through all
the billions
that pile
embodies

the carrying on
well into its
own loss

beyond distant
last geometries
as manifest
“raw” pieces

not a geology
worn or here
life or had
nostalgia

the possessions
fly from wholeness
symbols stumble
what represents is moved
in order
to be distant

between-Gods
are functions
or
billows willed

the representation
situating
nearly in spirit
behind
what is incarnated
as an object

the dried Rose
went
into being
and we await its second coming
as texture
as a box
as its matter

the natural work
of the living –
a ceased
final
physical force
