first, jay comes

First, jay comes.
A significant gesture
signifies two
twigs or wyes
in the form of twigs.

First, jay comes.
Takashi Homma blots
his copybook,
a blot with attendant dot
and dribble.

First, jay comes.
There is no other text,
but I recount
Gerhard Richter
in white and red.

First, jay comes.
Scrawl a flight
before a locust plague
of sticks: insects
are kept as pets.

First, jay comes.
A fire set
and flame hovering;
a fire set
from twigs growling.

First, jay comes.
There is blood
on the snow,
covered by twigs.

First, jay comes.
a thick rich line
through the snow—
a twig bisects.

First, jay comes.
Crosses in the snow—
twig drawn
blood below.

First, jay comes.
Ah, the blood stains
pink the snow;
that heavy splotch
must mean . . .

First, jay comes.
Beside the frozen stream
and pipes of spring
blood splatter indicates

after Takashi Homma
