“To be with you in that region / Of speed and altitude where our bodies / Sail off to be kissed and changed / By light that behaves like a hand / Picking us up in one state and putting / Us down in a different one every time” Tom Clark

Don’t Appear Howling

Wikipedia Poem, No. 487

compartments no compartments than what? 
then what that sound of intense emotion 

death blowing across 
vacant valley no-lines shot across compartments 

no compartments no lines 
between valleys 

no lines between compartments 
no compartmentalizing then what? the 

sound of intense emotion is 
the sound of 

of death crawling across the valley 
of lines sounded across death 

blown across a vacant compartment 
than what then what 

the sound of intense emotional death blowing across 
a vacancy 

lines between compartments 
no lines between them then

Poets Reading the News publishes ‘Agraphia’

Car5

“Car 5”

A great poetry website, Poets Reading The News, has published another one of my poems, Agraphia, along with one my recent photos, Car 5 (above).

I’m extraordinarily fond, and proud, of this poem. It’s about the way that war and violence affect one’s humanity.

It begins with a quote from Gabriele de’ Mussi, a historian of sorts, who gave one account of the beginning of the black plague in Europe in the mid-14th Century.

He tells of the siege on Kaffa (now known as Feodosia in Crimea) in which the Mongols launched the rotten flesh of their own sick and infected soldiers over the city walls in order to weaken the defending forces — an early version of biological warfare.

Please read and share it. You mean the world to me.

Thanks for being a part of this crazy project.

— Joe

considers well-produced risk
how far is too too far is too far
so far balanced well-produced

eye real human skin simple ethical
boundaries thrilling well-adjusted
someone balanced tests my mind

well-adjusted too far
balance test my conservative mind
well-produced polymers risk

produced conservative polymers
risk well-produced polymers risk
eye read as human skin simple cells

ethical boundaries push up against the world
i think and play out loud in thinking fields
artificial intelligence eye reading humans

i love you bot lately i’ve been thinking
i know polymers that push up against
the psychological understanding

runs of progressive reading human
skin simple ethical boundaries that
push up against the path forward

as it understands ideological boundaries
push up against psychological
boundaries push up against these

conservative habits and progressive tendencies
ideological boundaries push up against
the psychological risk taking

that plays out with considerable risk
well-produced polymers risk
conservative versus progressive

well-produced samples
boundaries that push up against the world
i’m thinking of a field between artificial intelligence

and game theory eyes read as human
someone who is balanced asks a lot
of artificial intelligence a lot of injury

or with violation but stretches
and tests my ethical boundaries push up
against containers risk well-produced polymers
thrilling the eyes read as human
