I tried telling you…

Stephen Kuusisto, Letters to Borges

I tried telling you about the seahorse

It’s coordinates, a map

Inside each creature

A silly thing to discuss

In the age of automobiles

Very foolish in fact

But I think so poorly

Of capitalism

So little do I recognize

In the looted faces

Of professors

I need living geometry

Rising effortlessly

In the seas of custom
