III (Reality Principle)
J. Michael Wahlgren

This section is to precede
What follows. I

Maybe the word
racecar, backwards.
These tracks

Will wither
Or gardenia. Weeds

That linger
At the bottom of lakes
Never shout

Unless tangled
In anchors,
Rope. Falling

Ash of a cigar
From a philosophic depth, I
Intend to climb as ivy does.
