In Medias Res

Sidewalk:

Pangolin leviathan,
made of many plates,
sometimes conscious of a certain stiffness at the joints

a thing sprawled over ground and under sky,
not side,
not peripheral but central, centric,
privileged with a centrism of its own.

(The ground cool, seedriddled and solid,
not as concrete but as a sat-on cushion,
a suitable staying place;

 

the skyside a mechanical mixture,
a lightness,
a thinness,

through which thicker things 
move back and forth.)
