SIMON PERCHIK
'As if by yourself the harness'

As if by yourself the harness half branches, half marble struggling to slow the moss and around both shoulders the crowd envies such a strength –a fake! what they don’t see is the iron bit that’s vaguely green though it’s your jaws not these gates that cannot move without you –a belonging and yet this mold is always in bloom, holding on to one winter more that needs flowers the way all mourners kneel and underneath the snow look for a wagon not from wood breaking down in front its fragrance and where you stopped for water.

SIMON PERCHIK
'Just by reaching in'

Just by reaching in-–this sore is heated though your arm covers it the way moonlight can’t hold on any longer lets some hillside pour over it and mornings too grow huge count the nights from so far off and each other-–you collect enter each room deeper and deeper careful not to shake the walls –on tiptoe so nothing falls takes root bent over a table warmed by these small rocks to follow you, shut half by the stench half on their own, one by one.
