blessed  

                             
          blessed is the boy       who loves       his mother
          this                predilection           for minor keys

          softly                                                   spoken
                               tree trunk poetics
          it’s an autumn hush
                                           an absence of green light
          it’s a cavernous echo                       your initials

          dictate    silence     your words breathe
                                                                   baroque
          comical intonations              your desire to write
          a book of euphemisms                    for the word
                                                                       dead
          we hope you’re doing it now

          arboreal     search/raid/search
                                                            hope triptych

          i told you     there was seldom      more precious
          blessed is the boy       who loves       his mother
