#ohj Micropoetry: OPENING LINES

no lineman specializes in ball play when
the line of scrimmage is another
scrivener, a root metaphor
with a poetic nuance at work
in the background

that’s where
ing lines draws to itself
a sticky thickener quickening
the inner line; an interface is
the line facing itself under erasure
the loosener of lines, dichter & bard

no specialist shows forth; already
outsides are dead and insides are living
the empowering resource, a
mythos in the logos making repair
