‘Unleaves’  by Jan Carroll

from ‘Ouiji World’

I fell backward
in the grape arbor’s
tasted hidden chambers
shading my doubts for
the marred order
If I really knew
anything about the
real chaos
I wouldn’t have wanted
any details
arranging the
still, there is
the remembrance of
what I wouldn’t have
seen as
protection in the
void behind the shadows.
