12 Degrees & Skiving

what began as year-long challenge has become perpetual until further notice

The Orchid II / L’Orchidea II

because she lives beside
a mirror
she only needed
to spring
two heads
they poke out
their tongues
at reflections
perfumed breath underpins
my studio overlaps
oils each word
I write is
summered with moths
impaled on the language
of flowers


perché lei vive accanto
uno specchio
aveva bisogno solo
a spingere
due teste
essi spuntano
le loro lingue
ai riflessioni
il sospiro profumato sostenne
lo studio, si sovrappone
gli oli e ogni parola
che scrivo è lasciata
in estate col falene
che si impalano sul linguaggio
dei fiori
