Dot - Poem by Clayton Eshleman

Unicellular sac pressed
fingertips,

two dots, a me
row--or a herow? a meandering
red moist

blastospore, a multicellular
dot-filled wall,
lubricious prefiguration of Hermes
who swings with

heat of the amoeba need
soldered to sprout

desire, an earthworm psyche
spiderline, tunneling on the leash of the
to-be-peristaltic

boundary seeking

something to curve
about, zigzag,
bear claw hut rain,
diagrammatic boogie-woogie of Hermes
flowing in the boundary catastrophe
when the animal was separated out

*

Dot,doorbell
Summoning Hades through stone.
