The camera holds
the one

outside
the rest & her

apron tied
behind

This screen
& the day

on the lawn
they’ve

arranged
like flowers

printed
from lawn

Outside it
this knot

& the bow
above it

arranged
the way

she was taught
in the loops

of the yellow
about it

voluntary
temporary

pull a string
& you’re out
