poem for June 18

Joseph Conrad

just the mind fathom ---- it goes into nearly
or the finding: i breathe a foreign language
seeming apart proximate, intermix
even double-cross ----a sneakiness
planned ----maybe to a riptide
heaviness into earwitness

cold, in the middle of a spell
or terra as ill ---legal alien a
neighbor, gotta spin to the back-verb
rubato's code
any possible ending to the sea a
deviousness, shell ----pried open --- (to open

(on June 18, 1878 Joseph Conrad stepped onto English soil for the first time)
