All I want
is not to be

first on one side,
then the other,

but to conjure
a stream

of sounds and images
for which I am not

responsible.
and maneuver within it—

mouth and tail
one thought.

—Rae Armantrout, from “Conjure” (Conjure, 2020)

. . . life and the memory of it so compressed
they’ve turned into each other. Which is which?
