Resident Forces

Even our cemeteries
Are stripped clean of ghosts.
The linoleum light washing off
The thousand-headed stones
And leaving a single cairn.
But the earth is really a simulcast
Of multiple frequencies,
Blue camenae, and green inhabitants
In the green trees.
Not to mention the known invisibilities:
Tardigrades wedged between dewdrops,
The magic of atoms
Conjuring touch in the lover’s hands.
