Wikipedia Poem, No. 185

“If you concentrate on the sound, if you disassociate the words from the object they denote, and if you say the words over and over, they become a sort of higher Esperanto. … pure chant … then … find[ing] an object to accommodate the words.” Don DeLillo


loxodonta africana

large quantities of fluorite tusk
dance a dramatic statehood
of flesh kikuyu nandi luhya

luo forest by internet light
sky against art eggfully
billow thick hatches a forest

air corrupts art flesh
bordered by ivory
it is poached elephant

chrysanthemum cinerariifolium
