RANUNCULUS REPENS/Creeping buttercup
 
trouble makers
edgeland raiders
boundary breakers

finding the glass sounds
 
fill the measure
pour, spill, recalibrate
draw sound into place,
aural mark making
 
flower/tree glasses on thin trunks/stems
blossom differently
into untethered ghost song
unvoiced but singing

arising
 
it was said
that women poets
must always be buried face down
else their wordsong
would disturb the living
 
as creeping buttercup
spreads its roots underground
and from below
breaks through
to flower above

to plait one’s hair
lying face down
on a stone floor
like prehistoric fish
feet stretched out behind
 
drawing up the elbows
to find the hair
unable to see
a rough gathering
of untended locks
 
fell for the divisions
the slow work of
burying and leaping
over and under
backwards
