1.         Strange Marquee
            THE SQUARE
            PLEASE GIVE

2.         The desire to tell
            no claims to retract
            illegible any focus

3.         then there’s this us
            rain check gathers
            dust. Spilt
            peppermint. Tease
            bright pine drops
            down a black dog's back –

4.         "Night's long." – the one awake.
            "I set you free," said the moon to the noun
