Gratitude

scoop

to wear so many rings your fingertips refuse to meet
to pull up skin-tight jeans
to slip on a pink tube top without being asked
to find what’s in your pocket

what is in your pocket?

to be known for a particular hairdo
to smell the way you do
to be brilliant without being moved
to snooze

oh scent do you see?

to kill in order to live
to grow a theorist in a tube
to suck off a hungry ghost
to love basic vanilla body mist after all these years

what won’t work and why not?

to have that kind of mind
to have this kind of mouth
to charge into the universe’s great recording booth
and scream no no no that won’t work

“our being able to do things with our words is the source of their being able to mean anything at all.” Nancy Bauer

    a man properly
      sharpens always 
        harvests 
     a district 

this will clear the most 
important 
     thing
 
       a man is sure to build 
a sub-district plans 
         to do 
this most important thing a spear 

the 
difference between 
          winning correctly and just winning 

a man first drops efficiency 
the tile of what 
sailing speciality send 
them in them 
in send in the 

first sharp speech and then assigning teeth
first dropped citizens correctly 
working on it oh and get a warehouse

a decent cash injection 
harvest any resources there 
first 
          men always harvest resources 
then build up any
  largely useless mean

Charles Bernstein,
Here is my litany,
How does it compare
To yours? Not a thing,
But an original tense,
Unknown to word, sound
Or light—the carefully pent
Birthday present
Approximately the size of a bowling ball
And the weight of a human heart
As you remember it—
Bowed and hysterical, still
Forever and unobserved.
