Found Poetry No. 2

Say the word swimming.

Now say it without the ing.
You’re up. Spell the word growing.
If you take off ing, what do you have left?
Where is grow? Which one? Which one’s o?
How do you spell it at the end? Good.
Uh oh, tell me the sounds?
We don’t say, graw. Never.
Do you need this? There’s grow.
There’s your ing. Perfect.
What’s that word? Good.
Can you spell it in the air?
Uh oh. Try again. Slide forward.

in the smiling eyes of death we find comedy
in the unthinkable flatness of dust we discover photography
we are our grains and height
awake late, again, 
someone warm loving you 
in a dream
in the other room
a truck full of swimming boys
swerves hysterically on route 17
commerce passing by in streaks unnoticed
in the absence of true friendship we find poetry
in the darkness of faith we trace our hands like children.

formless [fragment]

it was a quarter past two in the morning and she knocked on the cold, hand-painted door three times.
she often went for a 5-mile run in the never-silent urban night; interrupting the halogen darkness, ambulance calls were foremost, then police sirens, then the dual blast of fire alarms.
he answered the door almost immediately. inside, turning the door knob, he was as asleep as she was iced in sweat. their eyes met and a each exchanged a sweet quarter smile. she placed her fingertips on the small of his back and guided him back to the bedroom, toward the bed.
she watched him, rough and childlike, throw the duvet covers aside, climb in with his knees, rip the blankets back over his small body. he was asleep, again. 

Found Poetry No. 1

mystery of the ghost
bloodthirsty massacre, dark water

have you seen the legendary
Chi Xu Cliff mermaids?
the Soviet Union harvest
rival week wins a distress message:

“save me, lady in the water
in the door to the scene
Zhou Sheng had died.”

mobile phone lover Luo
spent SMS pop-up
long a certain death:

“i am the lady in the water”

this is a brutal revenge
this is a premeditated killing

beautiful police officer leaves competition
involved in the investigation
a strange supernatural evidence

“but have to point to the Su Feng, Su Feng
serve the suspect — nixe — the event”

another detonated mysterious jade
wake the sleeping years memory
the truth is beginning to emerge.

The horrors of the legend of the lady in the water
Chi Xu Cliff is forbidden: deep caves, terrible secret
many to students, many to die
Sex and the City
the unthinkable occurred everywhere
perhaps, the devil behind you!
