CALELendar a poem, by Melissa Chaconas

branch out on words
pivot the approach he prophecy
relentlessly the part
dreamed old- piece of night
that transformations between me
first word- last love
intricately organic beyond
reason strange
benediction lesson
mailbox wrath welcome letter picnic
father instructions

confidential hemorrhage

signal child
to
economist’s old clothes
mask of supper
daughter bring
mean careless love
quality between
this questioned
world
silence your science green gods.

flowers fall grimmer grammer in
house- railed- un-withered
the approach to
upstairs
-the thief
of end- when will it end?
goose eat- what eat goose?
&
dragonfly- ?
lamplight covers
scourged head down
hermetic
reader
writer
down
in class

summing up meditation
a testing spark
journal old cracked curtain (belongs to someone else)
to portrait
the illumination of dynasty
w/ red breasted robin
road of summer river solstice
build report gladiator of the system
around 3 floors- flights to the king cleoparta
tree-please teach Dante
layeREd knots unknown nights
catch cage- portents contents fire-sticks
Lincoln’s death

quarrel w/ six
sisters
route the unquiet ones
layer snakes of
September
image maker
make we
abduction to 1914
foreboding my
poet rounds
ill pass on the
boat

whale through
chariot rides
to the house
of mother’s
pearls
comet
autumn
comes
commit on
lamentation-
the sea
touch me

never
begin
w/
beethoven
expected
music-
not to you
but it acts
of old photos retouched
signed great
