Peter Kline


What goes up. What was broken.
What comes around. What lives.

What bears three leaves. What spared the rod.
What started out as just five loaves.

What’s signified. What glisters.
What can look you in the eye.

What grows in where hair once was.
What saves the snows of yesteryear.

What turns plum-purple in the starlight.
What was denied against a knife-point.

What the sentences set loose.
What to strain for in the silence.
