A list of some observation

A list of some observation. In a corner, it’s warm.
A glance leaves an imprint on anything it’s dwelt on.
Water is glass’s most public form.
Man is more frightening than its skeleton.
A nowhere winter evening with wine. A black
Porch resists an osier’s stiff assaults.
Fixed on an elbow, the body bulks
Like a glacier’s debris, a moraine of sorts.
A millennium hence, they’ll no doubt expose
A fossil bivalve propped behind this gauze
Cloth, with the print of lips under the print of fringe, mumbling “Good night” to a window hinge.
