marginal comets is an exercise in compos[t]ition.
a heap of trash. a mound of scraps. a pile of rubbish.
a shovel turning over the soil. a opossum sifting through the leaves. an earthworm wiggling. a potato vine growing from the apple of your eye. a squash blossom turned inside out. a squawking fish. a spillin moon. a tin can draped across a courtyard fence. muggledy peg muggledy peg, rigamarole malarkey.
