“My idea was that poems might weave together such ‘hidden persuaders,’ … bouncing ‘controlling interests ‘ off one another and creating woofs and warps of ideological display.” Charles Bernstein, FSG Poetry


       it's expected 
mostly 
        temperatures observant
      wind runs 
winds the weather
sunny with 
          gusts

as 
high as 
it feels chillier 

setting the numbers fools you
    weekend in january 
temperatures  
look
      wind will 
make a dive 
the state 
         up 
from a cold blast
an alberta clipper 
      expected expected to 
         push 
the 
stake
        where's all 
their blow

  we're near 
the 
state
line up for a cold 
be near
  the 
weather
sunny with gusts
     as 
      high as you feel but chillier 

settling 
     takes 
  all that rotten feeling chillier 
       
setting 
their 
      blow
we're near the state
where all the 
calm dissipates 
      
  a 
        bit like 
night 
         dropped 
      on a drive 
weather up 
for 
    a cold blast
