Parts 1, 2, 9 & 11

1
Estranged blood in the vein / another round / of light / each sparked cry / of the tit / down by the water / there is a lie which we live / down here / to be even / on an instep of bad blood / love is the mark

2
Light shepherds / blood in the dream / housed by lamp, joyfully released / and agreeing to sleep through the morning / free / thankful in the body / & careworn / a line of starlight waters down / it is a familiar moment / idiocy itself participates through the shut window / comes among men

9
The wild blood in sleep lifts the world / off the ground / thrilled / neighbour and neighbour / echo’s into the finch’s fingered score / repertoire of backflow / alone in ditches wet with dew / dazzled / we ride there irreal / as the blood burns sound / open too for bramble and gorse and nettle

11
For ever and ever and ever / a faint equal ray shone on our children / new material / top scars / crown, leaf-like / sweeping beak deep / in the world’s meltwater / reading / colder rivers / time / neighboured by men
