Forest & Dove — Max Ernst, 1927
bodily in the leaves'
language net / that roots might erupt like a syntax
of assault / the forest's carved-wooden
face an unanswered
question at your throat / there are no wings to beat
an escape with
& suddenly you are a boy
on fear / joy
the pines dreaming of hunched branches / the mind
upraising red fingers in awe
