Surface engraved with a narrow stroke, path
Imagined between two points. Of singular thickness,
a glib remark, a fragment, an unfinished phrase.
It is any one edge of a shape and its contours
in entirety.Melody arranged, a recitation,
the ways horizons are formed.Think of leveling,
snaring, the body's disposition (both in movement
and repose). It has to do with palms and creases, with rope wound tight on someone's hand, things
resembling drawn marks : a suture or a mountain ridge,
an incision, this width of light. A razor blade
at a miror, tapping out a dose, or the churn
of conveyor helts, the scoured, idling machines.
A conduit, a boundary, an exacting
course of thought. And here, the tautness
of tent stakes, earth shoveled, the depth of a trench.
