A clock-face for every nightmare
& a ruler to which the dilation
of daffodils does not confirm.
Crucifix of sentience, one hand
is small & the other large
but no head or heart at apex,
just a gluttonous wedge; money,
essence, tide—only one
chisels holes in the limestone.
Bilateral symmetry or a binary?
Only one alights, craw
of the Green Man who bids
all stalks arise & cannot give you
the time of day.
