the hour in which the is of things is other: you are other I am other & in this othering something shared. great chasms glint with abundance – oxbow lakes, syllables pushing out outward on something sentimental. if is takes the shape of prayer in my mouth & if you take the shape of is in my mouth other is just another sigh: satisfaction redundant in the uttering.
