immobility of death, swaddling and entwining us, white on the
mountain side, splintered teeth against the almost-murder of
philoctetes. wiped into existence, our bodies wiped away,
existence wiped away,

mist, and music and chant, sound and glad and tubes, dark
tunnels. urgent segment was frozen space, long sexalways already

behind me, veil of veils, shroud of shroud, i hunger more than
ever for a fog, ... a fog ... wiped into existence, our bodies
wiped away, violation-fabric weight, shrieked tunnels, smoked,
