No Crystalization Without Representation

Thanks for letting me take a look at this one time I was there was no reason to be mad at me because I'm not going to be able to make you feel like a piece of paper and the kids are doing great.

Great news for the kids to the park and ride at the beach with the boys for the day but if we can get together for a drink and see the car and then we have a lot in common.

Really Big Beach

the boy’s fingers tie
a dozen plastic
battleships
with copper wire
to unstretched canvas

anselm kiefer
mistakes
monet’s grainstack for
pure painting

tell the story
of colin powell
at the united nations
advocate of war
in 2003 his staff
covers guernica
with a curtain
atlantic blue

anselm kiefer
purchases
the mülheim-kärlich
nuclear reactor

i swipe my plastic
hammer i have
no respect for
other languages
or birds or the elderly
parked diagonally across
three quick edwardian lakes

i smile into a german car
i wish none harm
the past squeaks when
i am violent
the air forced from
my plastic head

i implore you
save yourself please
please i can’t
do it for you
i won’t

Security Forces

struggle in hand the jump
and cut of bloodless bone
of beak notorious for weight
lessness what does it cost
a useless periphery universe?

manifestoes  but all the text is small and difficult  
museum admissions and     museum educators       
portal insightful flash lateral        and cliche fish chatter to the ropes 
meet           in the extent to which the texts trouble and engage

out on the attempt to answer this question
