THE TIMING OF CRYSTALIZATION OF THE LUNAR MAGMA OCEAN IS CONSTRAINED BY THE OLDEST ZIRCON
by Claudia Ryan

(1)


Everything is a word
for everything
and for everything that is,
that black star
optic nerve nervous
nerve of me
everything that is.

I fall out of me and into you,
I fall out of myself and into another self just as easy as it takes one second,
I am falling into another person.

I am remembering the first absence, then another,
I am blooming, blossoming, falling.

Your distance inhabits me like a knife of cutting that cuts me,
I am doing my own cutting.
My skin falls off my face and comes back
over the bone of my forehead;
it is scrunched up and unrecognizable.
My face is becoming my true face:
the face of an animal.
This animal can"t speak,
but only dissolves in acid.

Walking from indoors to outdoors is simple,
I just walk through the air thinking of all the molecules I am squashing.
