Chewing repeated phrases.
                        Naming everything evergreen
                        From spring to spring, it’s silent,

Except for the naming.
That contains the world.

                        The egg yolk runs out of the eggshell,
                        The photograph captures your back,
                        at the stove,
                                                turning it over.
