things unfriendly
things how much love
is parking one
sees measure sees
love love
is what one sees
oneself flash io
then flash
something else
no longer seen

the lasting sting-pain
poet in the dark

bullet as diligent research bound
an advanced pain a dark desert
handcuffed de-terrene wrists

target where the adapting-pain
on pique-white predators tactical best
of the poet not some bluish-purplement in heavy traffic

the same stockeyed honey bee
pain scaled up to life    for it is

life hours of morning
things failing the harvest

the poet’s own industry
from history
repelled forward

more more more

“We too are products … cultural products. We too will become obsolete. The functioning of the system is identical—with the difference that, in general, there is no obvious technical or functional improvement; all that remains is the demand for novelty in its pure state.” from Michel Houellebecq, “The Map and the Territory”


politics local reactance
previews the people and
if you will have me america

the republic changes
people under coercive society
dominate racial cultural race

change anyway times
the machine efforts younger
american society and time

those who riff endlessly rebutting
american white change probably
see movement as birth

in american changes this defines
the year americans by that america
will mean for you performance

before this always happens
as america will mean what
bit this further what licked this

Relief in this return to normalcy—that I could stop thinking about this “other world” of unknown bird sounds.


the middle age’s language garden
petals once because golden soil
means plant and not the altar devil’s

flowers heat pluto into third eye sight
grow sometimes invasive on winter
days in your high and like a layer

of flowers with sidearms you
wants in the sea spike a wonderful
well—for it is otherwise missing

to a true black hollyhock they can
be invasive corn is nice black
decorative heralds a middle age

the cottage of pollen with no petals
a week’s bees but the seedhead
picks off other gifts flowers an ape

and perennial dried goods
cut flowers bloomy red hot soppy
large round and marry mordant spiders

“‘The pussy and the ass.
They are the cupcake and the pastry.
Because one tastes sour and one tastes sweet.’

‘Darling,’ said Adeline, ‘which is it?’

‘That’s the mystery of the cupcake and the pastry.
No one knows. It depends on your personal preference.'”
