1. Begins as milk teeth, synthetic eye depositories.
Counsel flesh to pliancy—say skin does mend. Other
2. End where filaments often end
at the bottom of clouds. Dutiful. Cumulus. Bunched
then tucked. Hemmed about electricity. Thin. We.
To insist upon them. Curtailed doves
Awake. Beacon golds. & drizzle.
The deep hyperborean indigos of her gash.
All parted florets. Gentle where waxy sheath
unfurls a revealing pearl. Nights dew-stung.
Thus, "shell" . Where clogs fur.
Mossy in the sealant. & brevity. Twitching
compass needle. Here. Nine mouths. A Tongue
of origin. Hived & labyrinthine.
Songs of (In)experience
1. Weep. Downtrodden bird. Where. Summer here
resounds misery. Hymn. Psalm for keeping the heart
meters apart from the soul.
Heavy garden. To grow deep in soil. For dark's
a sure escape. Seek Autumn's thorns in vain.
2. I. Prophetic. Unsee another loss of clay. Another unease
of bone inside the mouth. & blossoms heavily bound around
the ankles. Look upon the pathless valley deep. Look upon
restless licks of sleep. & the impoverished. Southern. Trodden.
3. Pathos. & what have we? 1) A sky-lark. 2) Uncharted maze
in the eye. 3) A root buried deep in the mellowing grass.
Unravel darkly into the mist. Woe. If ever I miss
reaching outward. Beyond. With finger. Or eye.
