On Lisa Robertson's "Thursday"

it is
it’s all there is
it’s bright
it’s brilliant
it’s it
it’s expanding, day by day,
it’s beyond what it was
it’s difficult, you see, to predict
it has no centre, yet
it’s here
it’s terrifying
it smarts, albeit
it is what it is
it gathers itself together
it’s implacable and reserved
it’s a shapeless eagerness
it’s moderate to rough
it’s poor becoming good
it generally mimics and resists…
