Patrick Samuel

some cool tree wallpaper you’ve got

                              I thought I saw a deer disrepair function
     from behind one of the trunks
          or branch bore back in the beating
                                             bulb of earth the ultimate archive
                    hard against my love sores plumbing
                 left exposed my chart my outstanding
                         balance fails like general directions I stare
dormant when you thought you saw the deer
                                        gape the skid of its mouth offering the neon
          of her children to passing canoers
