Message Unfolding

it’s true
the whole thing is

simply unfolding
napkins from a briefcase

of what we can’t
see is unfolding

anything, from the briefcase
but

look
look

at all the open
ended napkins

they are clouds
they have no pattern to them

the yard flames
napkins dance when we look at them

and what they do
behind our necks

it’s impossible to know, but
of course

museums
want to take this as a show

and place
all those unfolding napkins

in front of the eyes
of men women and children—

the elderly
of course are occasionally allowed in, if

I don’t stop
I’ll miss the relevance of your message, and it’s

the message of what
continues to

wash
as the definition of

unfolding napkins en-clothes
itself around a pole

with seeds between we
call this thing

an apple
