Attestation as to the ear-
witnessing of the heart's want.
Was as if i'd pulled a bunny out or flipped
a coin had landed on its edge as a naturist
knowing a bird from a bat were a flutter in the belfry
weird and wild no plainer nor truer
was the angel talked from voices
vocal in my bowed-down head.
Sworn this day, as my maternal aunt
had a brother-in-law whose son was me.
