GREGORY VINCENT ST. THOMASINO



Tilting

1.

a life, by other means, is tilting
into corners

a life, by other means
can rest, or prise, or, customer, a morning

an epitome, in parenthesis
a passage, or, in correspondence, the solitary arc

now harking, and immovable
is making quote

2.

the sinuation, out of home
As much is harrowing,

or untried,
the eye, in community.

3.

the pilgrim, in tournament
is getting over, getting on

a life, by other means
is fitting words into corners

a life, by other means
is tilting after cranes

4.

and following, in salute
in all the forms of one, whom, some, are

and aptly so
in rooms overlooking quiet places. A chaplet, of prayer

and pension
of groundsmen, in repair, of arms and legs

in repose
a going far, is taking hand
