Cervical Vertebra Variation

Syringes crescendo incrementally. Segmental sound drift. Rostrum-gist shifts from leading edge to trailing. Feathers shed antithetically (molto molting melodeon).


Song of suction bellow and reed. Seven-process processional (one spinous, two transverse, four articular).  Song of rachis and foramen. Spinal chorus.

Sylvia Legris’ poems in this issue of CV2 are from her yet-to-be-published collection Pneumatic antiphonal, other poems of which have appeared in New American Writing, Conjunctions, and Prairie Fire.
