with sunlight/Forgiveness

by Marisa Siegel

is a word for replacing not to replace but substitute
a branch to stand the proud fence straight up/down

Road as invitation as impassible/impossible to pass
up and down those myths of improbability that was

Words as fences/are fences not as cages but question
the whole idea of cages and/as closure is impossible

It comes to pass that we replace past transgressions
with/in a calculated time, an invitation marked date

Becomes myth held down and drawn out perhaps not
straight or involving of lines replacing circles that are

im/possible to break out of so back to borders back
to time-frames the calendar and roots out a solution
