rate of loss

‘Get off, get off! can’t you see

‘Why did you not leave me alone?’ asked the rock.

that familiar gaping feeling

(the one we were borne with)

dampens every crevasse

for ever (giving berth)

 

wet seeps into dry

wearing a way at the edges

pressing oneself against itself

weeps intuit

Great emptiness as

simple as that went

So straight before-

 

had not been able

then not being idle

went absent away

 

Now faith is not what we

hereafter have we have a

world resting on nothing

 

Rest was never more than

abstract since it is empty

reality we cannot escape

 

from “Souls of the Labadie Tract” by Susan Howe
