silent, we-

by David Tomaloff

underneath the city,
on top of the moon,
bruises ring the new
year’s song; a hymnal []

a battle plan : mace
and mesa“  eloquent
trees above sway to
songs of inebriated 

;                        soil-
mix,        locate, enounce,
change speed,   and playback-

chance lift, and bullet(!)  to the
           -we a/drift to”

9how silent is   :us
and     how silent
[en dash]       the moon.
