Florida

In the furthest
places I find images
with no sound—
I see green bagels

and blue ink
on legal paper,
and the certain

loops of my father’s
Ls and Js: I scavenged
and rushed

from clue to
clue in hopes
of chocolate riches

amidst crawl space
bricks and wood
in the cellar

            *

and somehow deeper
there is white noise
and a single blink:

stillness, and a
linear heat
on my forehead,

immense red
brick zigzags,
an intricate soft dome,
spilling on the edges.
