Hat size.

still guessing the hat size you wore

and whether life can be found and grown

from the Microsliding world.

from the inside of shrinking glacier. 

and where’s there’s a mountain lion to move 

there’s music that could persuade it 

To leap the year.

watching hourglass history empty out 

through gas masks of little boys that 

Looked to shipping lanes of their fathers 

To see sunken bottled vices.

 translations of flowering mirrors.
