“What shall I do? not be Rich or Great, / Not to be courted and admir’d, / With Beauty blest, or Wit inspir’d, / Alas! these merit not my care and sweat, / These cannot my Ambition please, / My high born Soul shall never stoop to these; / But something I would be thats truly great / In’ts self, and not by vulgar estimate.” Mary Astell, 7 Jan. 1687

every word locked in its own pillory


thought and love
trying to embolden
a lot of good men

love them thinking to embolden
a lot of jameses
onto the banks no

embolden in the same tepid
we’re from
from a moral witch

tepid love and thought came
i know a lot of good thought
i’ve been through never before

came to ing from ing upon that way
the drone vestibule throughout
in my own private vested tested

weigh them and love them and try to embolden
a lot of good thought
i they and them

embolden thinking too much heat
we’re a year
and a half into the drought

heat of a good thought of hits
no injuries sure i know a year and the drought
any means come from

hits a lot of good love in the eye
and love’s tepid uprooting
too much we’re

i know a year
a year and a half
max left in the drought

Night Arching Womb

Neutral Reaction, Joseph M. Gerace, 65 x 36 in., 2015

Chuck Close
look down down down
a second simply layer
Murphy Oil Soap
at reality masterfully 
aftermarket wheels
a precise daub of Reynolds Wrap
works on John
a vaseline claw 1992
grasps a brush impossibly
spring clamp reference 
stone triangles — first feathers 
& then — god
no art without
stone god the palette, 
the scale, the carousel
counteroffensive rather
than approaching his point
from a theoretical perspective —

Now, here, upon the Donald Trump
of night arching, arching, gray then black
with phallic observations, a widening womb
tribal almost organic as in seeing 
for the first time a psychedelic intoxicant
metadata: the hand that colossal wreck, bound them.
