What If Donald Trump Were Born Yr Dog?

What if Donald Trump were born yr dog
I swear it 2:24 in the morning florid sky
I taste sweet poison fill my teeth
With us remember these confessions

Head on Fire

The sustained atmosphere of loss was international
there’s nothing better than boozing up not running
long old i’m not talking crap sounding ugly nothing
ugly being promoted look at that god damned cow
boy hat they’re sitting here talkin porno stuff is yr
head on fire? i smell the smoke it smells like yr head
america takes advantage of these opportunities yr
given without any consideration for those who just
wanna live and be free the smell of charcoal black
and white film he makes my heart throb he says he’s
eighteen he says the sky is on fire handsome grain
i got drunk and wandered into a room full of nude
universes vegetables and rice there are so many
cadillacs in this world yet the country is so small
without sex workers and programmers and lobbyists
run away little boy run away el pastel stolen light más
lento soft and unfrightened each moment of hospitality
impregnable.

Three Translations of Rimbaud

Antique

Arthur Rimbaud

Gracieux fils de Pan! Autour de ton front couronné de fleurettes et de baies tex yeux, des boules précieuses, remuent. Tachées de lies brunes, tes joues se creusent. Tes crocs luisent. Ta poitrine ressemble à une cithare, des tintements circulent dans tes bras blonds. Ton cœur bat dans ce ventre où dort le double sexe. Promène-toi, la nuit, en mouvant doucement cette cuisse, cette seconde cuisse et cette jambe de gauche.


Antique

trans. John Ashbery

Graceful son of Pan! Around your forehead crowned with small flowers and berries, your eyes precious spheres, are moving. Spotted with brownish wine lees, your cheeks grow hollow. Your fangs gleam. Your chest is like a lyre, jingling sounds circulate between your blond arms. Your heart beats in that belly where the double sex sleeps. Walk at night, gently moving that thigh, that second thigh and that left leg.


Ancient

trans. Wallace Fowlie

Graceful son of Pan! Under your brow crowned with flowers and berries, your eyes, precious balls, move. Spotted with dark streaks, your cheeks look hollow. Your fangs glisten. Your chest is like a lyre and tinklings move up and down your white arms. Your heart beats in that abdomen where your double sex sleeps. Walk at night and move gently this thigh, then this other thigh and this left leg.


Against

trans. Joseph M. Gerace

Beats in the belly! Whereas your bat dans tes pan! Autour heart beats in the abdomen where your fangs glisten. Your eyes, remuent. Tachées de gauche. Ancient trains walk at night, gently moving sound. Your eyes, your forehead, crowned with small flowers and berries, your forehead — crocs-luisent. Tachées de les tes yeux, des boules précieux fils de pan! Under your fangs gleam brilliant blond arms. Your double, à une cithare, des tes yeux, des boules précieux, fils de pan! Autour forehead crocs luisent. Tachées de pan! Autour hearts beat in your thigh.

Gilgamesh Gets Confused

Wikipedia Poem, No. 956

This was a unifying national story. When it dominated, politics was over which party could offer the most opportunity.

the land of opportunity
immigrants came to the tower
of terror the land of dogs
and self-improvement created
by dragging hustlers who
impoverish the person and opportunity
and immigrants who came to this wastebasket
at dawn looking hustled
who was expelled from the negro streets
of war and poverty of lead listening
hustler who bared in the best under minds
personed and peopled and dogged self-improvement
cool eyes hallucinated through new bustling
in the quintessence palestine is a never
in this wastebasket at dawn lookin’ hustled
who expelled the ancient creation
out for new business starvin’
the academies connected destruction
to opportunity

Wikipedia Poem, No. 955

The Black Wind Begins to Blow

be good at everything astride a famous quote
jack views composition in the best way possible
man philosophy don’t take things u want to eat
every good type of advice is basically aimed
i am a very good dreamer
i feel the avant-garde … a matter of review
i think even if u are studying a famous quote
jack of view and a matter of revenge
u may be
u want to eat cheese
so have your revenge in the best way possible

my personal point of view
don’t sever anything
take sewage in the best way possible
to eat could be good
that composition is written with pure heart
and time is written with pure heart
any particular fields become a good dreamer

i feel that that that type of field dreams people
i feel that cheese however good will always be a good dreamer
i feel that type of view is an excuse to be good at everything

pathetic and parasitic movement aimed to eat
could slip pain under it is nothing but pain under it
and an excuse to eat at everything
u will be possible
studied slit
under it be presented by me in the best way possible
eat my present in the field of good
that any particular field will still be presented by me
in their fields people will be good
that any pathetic movement aims and criticizes
we feel thy master the bodybuilder in any particular field
people are possible because it is written with pure heart
and a matter of view and composition in the best way possible

so how much beloved angel
which manner of advice to eat
be a good dreamer
i feel basic admiration
matter is human philosophy
and an excuse to try hard

that type of advice could be very good
or bad in their fields people will be
presented to me in the best way possible
studied under a master tree even
if u are good dreamer i feel then
compelled to master my limbs
it is human nothings
u want to eat but every good possibility
does a below average job
you want to because it is hard to maintain that type of view
and don’t
