In Which Nathalia Crane Gives It Up by the Harsh Candlelight of Hindsight (Mansion of Gravity)

Wikipedia Poem, No. 791


“it cries and it looks like a wolf I believe it wanted / to cultivate this look” Julian Talamantez Brolaski

lava lane will 
       be her 
         poet off the 
          gravity mist and sing

         is profane 
       nathalia's nathalia crane will be published all 
in what will be presented 
          ruin by a waterfall 

society hear ye of old 
love lane 
a cantatrice shade of 
      courage was a kinsman 
to be counted off

— Brooklyn, Sept. 13, 1925

“You’re so sheer, you’re so chic, teenage rebel of the week” Bryan Ferry


talks in the couple
of married borough home
follows roxy music

album cover model lucy
helmore pregnant affair
new amsterdams the dancers

who stormed up afterwards
forced their way into the dealers
college couples separate drums

simple keyboard riffs

several times the couple
in brooklyn lucy caused
junior to stick together

thirty-five years early
posing eerie sturdy
produced of notorious

simple keyboard riffs
initially played and adopted
from the bands such as hell

simple keyboard riffs

already this is something lucy would
listen sharing a poverty-stricken
twenty-year-old factory of motor monsters

simple keyboard riffs initially played
classic one critic at emerson was
a magic tramp once played along

she’s ever brooklyn
of record length
motor monsters motoring

simple keyboard riffs

initially played her adoption
off most rider eerie studs
simple keyboard riffs

in los angeles next generation living
high school graduate on the banks aerial
and singing at night and even jobbed

after three half-sister singers
performed so well as his vocal reference
to mother daytimes living by the bank

simple keyboard riffs

falsely claiming to be on his ipad
from an early age falsely employed
the bank falsely by aerial ballet

to grab the reader by the balls
to force it to sculpt my bellicose cleavage 
	in the whitespace under the image
to demand pedagogy and aloofness 
	had coupled in the unified field
	and born “THISS” 
	(quoting Olson & Graham)
to imply the blue of the sea, or Kings Plaza
	gray and untouchable, or a wild uninterpretable 
	sidecar tongueing Uigeadail
to insist casual, black, non-fear loosening a necktie
to guarantee through decay and whitehot kidney stones and 
	vomit-crested cry — bandanaed and ever so scrawny — that
