You As White Wall

January 4, 2012

by Rose Hunter

(when I try to understand what
I’m tracking my hands along
no entry or exit to the stucco
& although the this-then-that
is semipermeable)

(& there is paint roller in that, like
the one dropped from your roof, or
how before you are all mouth
and spirit bear roar)

the rest is render what to think
of you what to make of you

(no go white wall go
stay white wall, come)
