Papier Collé Paris 12 [draft, 041020131625]

yr typical wanting poem
gouache object of desire
elusively layered trompe l’oeil
Los Angeles downloading
New York cruelly
papier collé Paris 12

not a feign 10
of perspective 8 paid
to the shot clock 6 winding
down —

It

3 could be me 1
really, should have been, but,
the tousled crayon flowers
ape their Pulitzer plaudits
like epaulettes

, but,
have a drink
another embryonic epithet.
