Sift (2012)

stereo tape

Sift—the light tree the wood creak
—the light. Weight, weight pours
from left to sift. The light tree—
the light creaks. Weight from left
to sift. Loosen. From left
to loosen—creak. Loose the light.
Sift the light. To right—
right to sift. To creak. To
leak the light—to shift.

—Jan Trumbauer




Poem by Jan Trumbauer ∙ Read by Alice Rhee
