loose the knot

the wallet sinking in a bathtub
is a mouth open on the word
if was if if gnats were
gathered on a cloud's open
lip the cloud churns
your laundry blown
across a lawn fire
flickers in a window open
on a word off stuck
inside your throat which
is a lake beneath the earth a
rope burning in reverse

if if if if if if if if if off
- John M. Bennett
