lyrics

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.
