Rent an air boat and pilot
the swamps
peruse the weedy densities.
Morning sun.
Adjust your aperture, focus.

The imperative of this got me into the poem.

You are not paparazzi,
nor an assassin.

Enjoyed the sonics there and assassin/listen.

Perhaps S1 asks the reader to unravel rather than engage?

Either way, an involving read overall - as usual.

   Sorting Densities

Roughly the heft at mid-torso
of rye bread over-baked
forsaken and cooling too long,
poised as an alligator newly emergent
shiny
dark eyes alert
waiting outside Orlando.
 
Rent an air boat and pilot
the swamps
peruse the weedy densities.
Morning sun.
Adjust your aperture, focus.

You are not paparazzi,
nor an assassin.

Like him, you come in search
when you sense what listens
has stopped.
