From o n e


        VI: one


        One shakes /
        multiples / at
       
        whom is closer,

        before each other / included

        seizure /           on manifold,
        single
        another
        vacuous
        quantity /         of /

                                these vague
        over / trajectory
        piling,
        a solution
        is chord,          where

                                one shakes / gone to quote
       
                   
                                isolations / to
                    valves /



        XIII: one                   
                   
        Eerie / the total
        that gets in
        strong
        or /
        the
        “immensities happening
        outside one” /
       
        they feral array an opening thing,
       

        one got many / twins
        got
        in half sleep

        drunk / polysemous / engulfed

        streak
        apart
        involvement
       
        one
        is of
        shallowing /

        divisions


XXI: one

Ceiling, the recoil
of ceilings / one

            things ones

moves

its flat angle, what
one is
ahead of
is description

more one like breathing voids

the “sense of one / remaining” unbroken

is its

testimony / thinned /


blurs more a concentration of
oppositions a thing
is too large when it goes /
forming oppositions

field
splits    deliberate
vibrating nearly dark
