Look into the insect blind device
before it lacerates along web,
removing skin with book-like arrogance.
You do not incubate this lifeless thing
when everyone can hold a rifle.
The handshake gives as much as it takes.
E.H. swims the fifty year creases of a child born
and finds church for a second time.
It is discovered fish-hook grenades
will hang in net windows.
Attendance for christening
makes experience incomplete.
War is growing fingernails,
it is touched in the sound of departure.
The conception of a store is begun
by barren primitive cry of a nephew.
Inanimate bright blood on boot.
At a wedding Eddy searches
for the preserved eyes of his godson.
This suited man resists merging with baptism font.
Notes of animal cold thaw until you are
the landscape's significance.
E.H. says he remembers the christening.
