I think
cigarettes burn faster
in the winter night air
where there is winter
and where there is night.
only in the singular
are objects distinguished
from humans. rumpled.
they give off their vapour
give up. they fall in. it
falls in. it occurs. an idea
matters. that’s what history is.
only having to teach something
you read it. what would be a more
proper word for a vacuum cleaner?
a dust sucker. but then you’re back
in the past. a loss, again.
pushing cooking salt into the veins.
