Virtual Tides by Paul Casey

More Details

alfalfa in cursive

Casey, Paul

so that the nib stays on the page
in continuous curlicue from the 
ear of the first a to the last a's tail
in one fluid symbol of neverending
conjoined curves, I say, I write, alfalfa

and so that I may jib and tack
through the gusting of language
without pause, muscles of the
hand flowing in obescience to
the electric infinity of soundshapes

I say and write

alfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfalfa
