From: Vol.08 N.01 – Embodied Belonging: Towards an Ecopoetic Lyric

Two Poems

by Rory Green

creatures of the in-between

like sea foam / scattered over
moss log / a faint glow
paints the forest floor /
then now i am / in or of you /
chew leaf / carcass / and

otherwise unitary ontologies /
disassemblage engines blaze
rhizomorphic possibilities /

shed dark words / for
ghost flesh / the soft
spore mass / make
spells of shelter / death / resurrection soil

rhizome lyric

A rhizomatic network diagram, loosely resembling a human heart, where dotted lines link these single-word nodes: cave, sentence, find, voices, doubt, hold, water, cloud, flashes, land, need, name.
