Wire thin up and springy at angles

space here through twisted coil

Hardened and bent by the frame


To throw the knot with another

Overlap and hook and tangle

Tough in learned recoil

Unto malleable assemblage and chucks with softer edges


Sing amidst kilns and porcelain wildcats

And jump in the city of yours

The crook of an arm to you reckons

And the roundabout way to the floor.
