from CANT

—arc tines
figures traced in ash

flare          (a contour

tracts as lapse / rosette


—tether lilt as localised
place sewn   parsed—

rouse thrall rush of light

unseen scrape contrail
as clast           as acts—


—cell as : architecture /

cant as accumulation
coordinate shapes :

cadences of transference
tensile silts—
