HARP IS HAIR FOR HANDS

harp is hair
for hands
harphold
contrapuntal: parchment
make marble my
waning halfhaired

harp-
ist’s hands
prypart peeling
makes pink
in hair i
fist first i

marble my waning
peel my pink
in floor, floor
comes cold in crushing
cheek, keep in
picture my halfharp

for i
number each hair
before i
pluck

i carve
each meat
before
i

palm i
halt the hand
at harp

for words
palmed, wounds
hold it.

omit the “O”
because i
hold it: 

there
in
Mourning, there
in
Holding.
