Kestrel



A kestrel orbits the Meadowlands
Beside the Turnpike.
A reminder: In the order of everything,
It is most likely the case that
No thing separates from any other thing,
Despite great evidence contrary.

The four-ounce kestrel, gliding on, powerful and free—
As Diogenes masturbating in the marketplace—will die,
His body fall-flung by the side of the road
To be passively mourned,
Or at the feet of an invasive
Reed, forgotten,
Feeding many equal things,
The earth itself.

“Primarily that the focus of the work is to find who I am I guess. That’s perhaps the most important purpose of the pictures through the many years I’ve photographed. My photos are psychological statements, not political, not social, not economic. For others I would like to see the pictures help them find out who they are: to find a side of themselves that they keep in shadow. The side they refer to as ‘the dark side.'” Roger Ballen

 

who one is or
is one who after evolution
is some wholes

so one learns to open a door
something’s larger whole
somehow opens

a loch larger whole something pictured
oneself through the evolution of wholes
somehow a larger who opens

one is or becomes bored with nature
and explores becoming naturally one
does not give oneself the day

one does not go away the other way
it’s best to do this tonight either
become easier or become bored

with more experience
with dayrise to give oneself
with expired say boredom sets

spills more experience opens
a door somehow one does the
job completely of a bleeding janitor

You are given one potion
At the beginning of every clash
Another, you choose 
In peacetime, & pay for
With an excise stamp of flesh.

        Paul  
our 
  comfort
Praise to you any will 
deliver of God  gracious from such 
        a death I say 
both ‘Yes & yes’ in then 
       many troubles  
‘yes’ and 
    the 
troubles  
so 
the day of God  Jesus 
for your share 
       ‘Yes  yes’ and sisters abound through him we 
share 
abundantly 
  in this  I 
     was 
          continued to 
be 
to you anything what is 
ourselves 
both 
      ‘Yes & yes’ and especially in part  
          ‘Yes’ who raise to 
       the troubles  ‘yes’ and 
put 
his first 
  for 
your 
  hearts as my with all God  Jesus 
     
        Because we 
     lord it 
     has always been ‘Yes & yes’ in Christ 

Praise God is our relay 
   on 
God is  for you  patient of God’s gracious Creation  
Jesus by your message to be to be to you 
is for you a heart as sure as far beyond our hearts 
as we 
had 
received that as we had experienced that in our come 
to come to 
      deliver
    of God           a favored 
heart has always 
      been ‘Yes   &   yes’ 
and 
so they are ‘Yes  
& yes’ and ‘No    &
         no’ finally
        
 But as your 
    message delivered of 
     ownership on our message to deliver of many 
wills at
       God in 
a

    we itself  Indeed  it has delivered us in all 
comfort that is 
          faith  
      but 
we have seen 
        sentenced an answer to this happening
   the 
  day 
of many troubles  ‘Yes & yes’ 
and 
    to that you 
          share ‘Yes & yes’ and first so the Son of us in him

      in 
       our

of manners so 
that 
we 
          despaired 
of 
        ownership on 
    our confident endurance 
testifying through 
Him it has always been ‘Yes & yes’ suddenly so 
      the gracious ‘No & no’ from 
Macedonia and Timothy 
       ^ was conscience in 
    his pressed brother 

To 
the will of the 
sufferings of Asia & the Middle East  
      We had received from such 
  a death 
       I say 
both 
        ‘Yes & no’  so 
this 
happened the ‘America’ 
  is our hearts as sure

         of 
God is our faithful son our 
  relay beyond our relay on
          us in 
us

be 
   to be to spare ‘Yes & yes’ 
and first 
our faith your relay 
      on life 
it has a death 
and I 
  stand  
both of us from Macedonia and you firm 
        in health 
  in him & ‘Yes & yes’ it has always 
    been ‘Yes & yes’ and 
he with you anything 
       and 
despair our 
        many 
      promises  gracious from patient 
         endurance far 
beyond our 
message to endurance of all 
          God

The super ball is a comet
rips through passive air. 

The super ball doesn’t bounce
bites holes in the wall the concrete
foundation window pane the neighbor’s forehead.

The super ball cuts tight corners
around Chinese supersmog floods the Superdome
sparks this forest fire castrates that polar ice cap.

The super ball is a nuclear bunker buster 
shears around the ears shares killer stories about its time in the Royal Air Force
never barks or shows teeth when I stick to listening or head-gone leave without tipping.

The super ball is grey not gray a dumb way
for a poet to describe anything of such magnitude by
its lack-of-color which some people cannot see or ignore or paint over 
	with all the gravity of a man crushed undone turned inside out by a falling anvil.
