Tuesday poem #271 : Eléna Rivera : ANATOMIES

“Every book imposes its own method.
Every book may finally be only the
reflection of its method.”  —Edmond Jabès

Absorb the materials
along this day’s
obstructions of composition

Open a word, a sentence ascends,

Temple of textures
harbinger of the recollected
Every shadow its book

Being a honeycomb process
of catching
ore     wind     words

Eléna Rivera's third full-length collection of poetry Scaffolding (2017) is available from Princeton University Press.
