Green now, copper later | Hesitancy, where a core might be | birds’ fluttering | no concepts for cages | Copper, now | or, maybe | rank gold? | Mass, rested against neutral sky | mountain, past, personal | Ghost inside the mountain, where a cage once was | forget | Later is over

Dry gingko decision | Most delicate | Fragile mountain, and the autumn | where fingertips touch | Once, a river | Later, a sign | Called, but caught thinking still | Touch | lips | with summer’s lime mass | set into wings | Old bare song | piped through the species | bones left, bones | handed on | Feeling, acutely | green | now | leaves turning | Later begins
