there is as much power in

poetry     only one poem has
survived     To indicate where words are missing or

independent     in
a unique     form of

its riveting account
by the mountain of information that

used the text for an erasure
shifting fields of language
For instance,
/ Its /    / adjust the /    / between
and / across /     / and / balance /     / against / the instruments
of / change / over every page

preserved words

say
with the alternating tenderness and rage     has experienced the uncertainties
of this changed world

Of course,
—even this one.

punctuation
a fledgling independent
dedicated to the publication of writing
