Verge 2017 – Chimera



Gavin Yates

Umbra. Cathedral rain in arms:

in come the mountains, thin

as wallpaper. That elsewhere,

foot in the flickering: white navel

against the seams. Among the other

places, you walk on the table.

Approaching this,

to unhinge the face of moths—

then disperse. That those were lost

fingers wandering keys: I put

my phone and wallet to the side.
