David Harrison Horton

from Where Chinese Women Float in Space

Frailty and oceans, a monsoon
season, the desert
birds that rest, refuse to soar
paint the walls grey
when there’s no better option
walk on two feet
to keep the body
in motion


Walls and periphery
all the hometown crows (birds)
troublesome movement
of dislocated joints
a field of corn
a phantom
a five jiao note on the pavement
