the one time we tried to make it work &

for a while / i only heard / the sound / of a hundred / squirrels & woodpeckers / cajoling / along our gutters / siding of exposed / cell spray / insulation / like a bloated / honeycomb / an aneurysm scar / i woke in the morning / saw the speckled / scruff of your / hesitancy out the side / door window / & i do / the hail remains / unattended / like something we ought / to pick up / with gardening gloves / some shit that just goes / from one hovel / to the next / too white to be / clean / too coarse to bury / its toes / not our sky / dmitri / not ours / pranking us with seeds / of fog / gray vertebrae of / a dicot mistaken / for a mistake //
