excerpt from aporia: :porchlight
by Rebecca Stoddard

                 as if imitating being rolled

on an ocean floor and

the cessation of breath were simply a



a center developing yellow, an obedient lover

                 in sharp masada, a shanty,

                 an island of all night postures,


                  inside a tiki-torch glow, the muted color attributed to


                  the binding rooms


sweet arcana: :lovebird: : hanging rope


where porchlights swing, water faintly against glass           remorse begging

                  intrusions and invitations (her variants)

                                                            and skin breaks open over


and over and over against that tip,


                    as immediate as parting
