from "Open Fields," by Guillaume Amat


In the way that before
can mean both previous and in front of

we make our home
in the center
and extending from us equally in both directions

is time

This makes the body
the plastic snail shell from which the metal

measuring tape of what is future
and what is history


That which is about to happen
we eat

One more Pac-Man pellet for the ghost world
just over our shoulder
almost touching our hair
