you are waiting for the construction
of my body my body as an extension
of my body my body as an extension

i am waiting for the construction
i am ammo at the art stud club

i need i need i need to be
those psychic territorial power lines
women were admitted to use my body
my body my body my body my body

as an extension

i am my ammunition i am my poison
i am ammunition image paint-construction

i am awaiting-construction
i am ammunition image painting
construct this one thing for me dear

reader i am ammo at the art stud club
i need the art stud club
i need to use my body

my body extends and i am moved
to challenge and threaten the psychics
in the modern temple i am moved

One Hundred Uses For a Fern

Wikipedia Poem, No. 780

w780-sm

“A change in the concept of sexual identity is essential if we are not going to see the old political order reassert itself in every new revolution. … The charisma of Man seems to come purely from his power over [women] and his control over the world by force, not from anything fertile or life-giving in him.” Adrienne Rich, from “When We Dead Awaken”, 1971

“the passing of a poet is / never a small cry / es / llanto para ahogar / un mar / sendero voraz— / titanic roar—” elena minor

safara-like          advent, empiricism?   
                             raiment's will looking                             eats hamburgers 
          
       
raiment doesn't ape — and fucking with the edge of sustenance 
worrying the orlop that it willn't confidential —  what                    
                                   earth

and you

Map of the World

Wikipedia Poem, No. 746

shypint8

shy piñata

horizon of mascara slurps
a burst expectant cross
mangles the black one
purple swoosh at eye-level

burst piñata

down-filled custom spilt dirty swinging watcher
black one purpled shoulders slap
black one purple air of fire

blink mascara
burst piñata

the poets’ key
falls into air-fire

down across simile
like the face with no face
elsewhere is here
it licks for candied fontanelle

or glides or imagines
the black one’s purple mage
who cannot know:

and slurps
the poets’ knot
groks their shy
pint at eye-level
