Sieve Motions  


                         A lake, carved by rock


minuscule curlicues, chalk-soft,

          never perfect

spewed, wigged-out minnows,

      when stirred

puree of substances migrate

to  too-bright smear of green

Pica, a paste to eat when desperate


Upon meeting strangers, pay strict attention

to what is framed initially

a lone, fossilized freshwater coral,


stark white

in the murk

   

The strategies of seeds, or sperms

          two trapped in a rinsed tin can, circling,

          metallic

 The secret feeds of what is needed anyway.
