Subsumed; June celebration

After Peter Upward

out here being
                             speaks of making
               now as afterward
                                           or at least another

                           across a landscape
              defined by absence
not defined, but
              within possibility

                                                        casually subsumed
              codetta: I say looks like
we started something
                           we couldn’t finish

                          amid frozen gesture
hoarse, but hopeful
                                    Nathan turns, saying
                                                 here comes the tension

                              unravelling
                  coda: who can say
                                             what will come next
                              if at all
