Ten Views On A Portrait With Black-Clad Hand

I.
Wrapped
Left hand in
Funeral-black
Silk past
Pieces of poems
Against
Clouded blue

II.
It is not the image but the light
Upon
Image

III.
Over
Exposed gauze
A heavy
Sort of book
That means
All-past and withholding…
Begins

IV.
Night
Is a clear
Canvas against
The odd
Loveliness
In china blue.
That is
When you shall
Hunt

V.
The hounds are restless the game here
Is fat with summer

VI.
When
Lithe
Winter
Powders
Book and briar
One gloved hand
One:
Black-clad

VII.
There are
Pictures in shoes
And buckles
Over-bed wall
Mirrors cut
Metal
Mahogany

VIII.
All
In Photographs

IX.
Black-suit "School teachers are
Human too" men---in hunting
Accidents

X.
Tied-not
Gun shots and fever
