Early Modern Love Poem

Adjust

By Oli Hazzard, from a manuscript in progress. Hazzard has published two volumes of poetry, including, most recently, Within Habit (2014). 

calling in sick

     for each other

in each other’s

     fake sick voices

good life 

     choices

the murmuring

     of numerable

bees

     vanishing

into the fiction

     of a person

I am tired

     of not becoming

unbecoming

     to float like that

in sympathy

     I lack 

except here

     the weakness

protecting

     the time

debris prised

     from debris
