.......The little baby sleeps on his side,
his dream face turned to the woods;
.....a fox sleeps with its mouth of color;
& the O in your head, the damaged vowel,
where the skin rises to meet the wound,
....what does that spell?
.....—i don’t know, i don’t know
....(since it got to go on living) but
seems like basically it’s kind of
....a combination: everything
means everything plus
....there is no hidden meaning—
