Ephemeral

August 11th, Camille Roccanova

excerpt from a dictionary of poetry

In the morning

we lay to forget.

 

There are

the dreams the disasters the

dishevelment of our clothes

and the way we form our words

 

—an anatomy

yet to be illustrated

(undiscovered)

covered by sheets.

 

It is the moment before

our feet touch the ground,

our cotton eyes unripe.
