Few Slept. I Ate Spring. Kristen Orser i. Twice, I am least. Less heart. I will give them a heart sticking out of a rock. And it is all the way spring. ii. Spring. I am buttercupped at last. I found a way, in textual notes, to a field: language bright and round. iii. Round. I am turned around. My eye is a strange object budded with thought. iv. Thought. I hear everyone that is born in Spring. I take up a heart, but cannot find the pulse. v. Pulse. Where it stirs in the spring. Felt spring. Whisper a thousand pieces of sky. Of pause. vi. Pause unfolding into a rushing sound. Perhaps a thought. vii. Twice thought spring round. Thought pause. Thought a rushing sound.

I should like to rise and go Where the golden apples grow;-- Where below another sky Parrot islands anchored lie, And, watched by cockatoos and goats, Lonely Crusoes building boats;-- Where in sunshine reaching out Eastern cities, miles about, Are with mosque and minaret Among sandy gardens set, —Robert Louis Stevenson from "Travel"
