Cameron Lovejoy

two (dimensional) birds

in meditation the breadth of holes in bread 


a need a camel an L the space or dimension missing in the L is only two 


suppose typography can change this but this 


L a wingless dove is less a flightless thing 


more a lessened less-is-more lesson like the shallow breather’s still sustained just not as needy 


not to knead as in the batter glue but kneed 


as in the legs of time 


the L for lung or love




is between the two
