A Lesser Equivalent

Alfred Stieglitz, Equivalent (Set H, Print 1), 1923

just now

plumped fluffy

full and massing

to a tarnished

glower, submerged

below coursing

oceanic blankets

windstraked thin

across the scrim-

shifted light

ceaseless series of

vaporous moments


on the move

shape-shifting lazy

summer game to sense

drunk desperate rapture

looping back around

only to meet

enforced stillness

the mind seizes

half beats too late

paused pattern within

lucent fragments

tumbled by degree

navigating via imagined

cartography of wondrous

nomenclature, already perished


tag teamed marquees flash

frozen posted


between nothing

and one
