Tiny museums, with dolls of bisque | Pomeranian | glass eyes | Pockets, with loose buttons | Assembled, then neglected | Ransacked, and then, again, ransacked | Sudden thoughts | Lights coming on, automatically, at dusk | The place we find things | and others, lose | The place we find

Marked as belonging | together | Bright sets | from neutral stars | by a tequila, Orion | the Dog | Location of departures | a loose cloud | of journeys | stations of the sign | Owned by one, but by another | taken | Slow, above us, a lustrous moon | swells and shrinks | Sleep, sudden, the day’s collection | scattered | Assembled with Alphonse, with the war | this point in the story | Neglected, then re-found | in different | formations | Sleep, slow, sudden | the darkness | subsisting | of undersea caves | Looking cool | and by another, found | The place we lose
