Low Frequency by Caleb Puckett

No rest with the precarious nerve of night

through which the fine vibrations of loss pulse

in low frequency, diffuse electric directives culled

among broken manzanita branches, the refusals and refuse

of slight lifetimes spent amidst insensible constellations

in cinder block neighborhoods full of twisted white blankets,

vanishing points, vacancies, spaces where hands drop off of brows

and rise again to dimly comb through the indolent black currents

where humid night hides itself in the narcosis of the heart’s host

in a scarred old town near a river that still whittles away

the sandstone mantle of a salvation that some claim

crystallized under great pressure before we came
