Mutant City Acid

Wikipedia Poem, No. 890

enough
you can own
the concordant sickness
ringing
it’s way
into yr heart

i’m here

everything i
thought was funny when i was
the enemy

mutant city acid:
damp hedges a church
the modest hours
that guide
the modest hours that would be lost
if not for a drug
conviction i served seven years for
i served this
country i’ve done my time i’ve done my time and time
and
time and time again
i’ve made
some mistakes but thank
god the smell of wood smoke

i cast the enemy

mutant city acid:
damp
hedges a church
the
marvel
reduced figure
ground relationship
frustration casts
a rat’s scurry

NO ECHT GOVERNMENT

Wikipedia Poem, No. 888

Metapacking District (iii), Joseph M. Gerace

“One must desire the ultimate essence even if it is ‘contaminated.’”

Cy Twombly, 1957

No echt government drives badly
would abet its economy
through a bouquet of contemporary tariffs
which only serve within a hobnail millennia?

Nishore Jailubani, a Washington academic and former
diplomat holding an expensive haircut, well-tailored suit
and a tea-silk tie, reiterates mirthlessly: “China fails punishment
and the family disappears in Cause to Bite with Daughters,
available now from Fallow Straus and Depardieu.”

Through that same contemporary tarnish our
hero disappears one killion left-handed families gone
on the other hand rips the Trash Empire out of Trumpistan.

That orphan refugee — remember him? — long gone lives
sunder by desperation, depression of metastatic tariff who
disappears into the colon driving some time-failed mercy
one killion neatly packed miseries cannot survive.

SEND.

CAULK

Wikipedia Poem, No. 882

it’s about time for the art market to be subject to regulation à la the sec

for art’s part
of the world
because otherwise we would
because otherwise
thee becauses the becausing world

rauschenberg’s dilemma: what to do with this angora goat

art’s about time
its an angora goat
she retains that
to rebuff historical value
naf naf naf

she retains these things as a means of escape a way out of her images of the world because otherwise we would stay there forever fixed like the fly waiting for its annihilation

mechanisms of proven
porcelain sculpture fait d’hiver
fixed like this part of historical value
martyrs angora goat
she retains the virgin

i ate some of that
the art’s part
a me now

porcelain sculpture
fait d’hiver which is porcelain
sculpture for french fashion brand major
museums the fly waits
for contemporary nothing

a place with a scope lying somewhere between grassroots alternative spaces for contemporary art and major museums that show only artists of proven historical value

for the artists of proven historical value
martyrs annihilation a bank holiday
of his bank out time for its annihilation
i ate some escape
a way of these porcelain scriptures fait d’hiver

martyrs and warriors of last summer’s coup

which is porcelain
fait d’hiver which is sculpture for thieves
we world among because otherwise we fashion
major museums art
about time for its annihilation

no artwork nothing-day of the virgin a bank holiday took the plates

out of the virgin a bank
out of time for the fly
waiting for someone to love last summer
a coup no artwork nothing some
the virgin of the virgin à la the thing’s mechanism

framing mechanisms of things

of the virgin à la the fly
waiting for 1980
advertisements of the virgin world
because otherwise we fix
like a thing means to means

the most expensive living female

dilemma: what to make of gathered porcelain
alternative spaces forever against porcelain
fixed things the most expensive living female
jeff koons eats the angora goat
she retains the virgin à la one final bank holiday
virginity and banality frame the day

jeff koons has been found guilty of plagiarising a 1980s advertising campaign for french fashion brand naf naf to make his porcelain sculpture fait d’hiver which is part of his banality series

i am a head on a stick

headonastick-sm

with honesty and love
he carried 
me over the earth
to 
       burke reason, honesty and didn't once put my 
head on a stick
or make me 
    do terrible things 
to the truth

now i am a head on 
      a stick
made to 
do terrible things 
and love
       trauma 

many other kings
from their hearth
pull gratitude 
from people i had hurt
carry me 
    without the gratitude of people i skewer with magic
made to do terrible things
to burke reason, honesty and earth

i am a 
head 
i am a head 
    on a stick again
and didn't never once love
the earth
who burkes reason, honesty and 
wompsters alike 
have carried me through gratitude 
to people i had once loved
and burked myself  
with reason, honesty and mirth

i am a head 
on a stick
made to do terrible things to truth
     
a head once loved
a head 
on a stick
made to do terrible things and never once loved
tubercular wompsters 
have carried me over the earth
      to the granite people stuck 
on a stick
that
once loved
 the truth as a trunk
      
i am a g and a wompster 
carried beside the earth
to 
burke reason, honesty and fellow 
wompsters 
don't concern yourself
with my trauma 

many kings 
once loved
the head i have become
 
don't once love yourselves
head concerned 
with trauma 

many kings
many truths

i am a head once loved
on a stick
made to do terrible things
to heaven
          to the 
earth
to burke 
reason, honesty and wompsters 
     
i have carried myself over the earth
to 
burke reason, honesty 
and wompsters 

i am a head 
of
     many kings don't concern themselves with
love
do terrible things
       to burke reason, honesty and truth

i am a head once loved
for its amplitude of attitude i had on a 
stick
and chompers 
chomping all over the earth
to burke reason's honesty and don't come once loved 

and many kings  
and many traumas 
and many earths 

burke reason
honesty and don't 
and don't and don't
