Wikipedia Poem, No. 241

“I told him about my trip to Berlin, how I had gone back to a country I / couldn’t remember; and during the time I was there, found the language / less harsh, less laden with its history, but still not really familiar / I realized I had gone there to find a state of mind” Forest Hamer


x in the time of y

from here a bistro table invites thrills
and irrigation leverages
buying sons lie another use

irrigation zones then
on 75th street like crows
if they are said to function

resemble privacy deeply
and common cover cold
the first big outdoor

excision of self
frosting the outdoors
rehabilitating neglected aluminum

walls grease-covered
picked over rules
arboretum balcony courtyard

trellises grown over with lush wild perineum
