a surfer’s leg
of indigo pain.
Robert Adamson Waving to Hart Crane
When I first read this poem, I was left with the image of a pattern of blue welts on skin because I had read “lace” (singular) which I took to be a reference to the delicate result of contact. A second reading and I realize that the “laces” (plural) belong to the animal inflicting the pain.
And so for day 1262
