Where Are the Socially Conservative Women in This Fight?

the care has been worried in labor
all spelling drunk men of consequence
not of lake nor lee and helping

and that’s a grant at those free of lyric

who could have been his daughter

who had to pay leaders to say what shows
not family not senators from florid-a

Capitol is a barren and spindly thing.
Its tart parts art themselves sunflower—
High for a brief time—then dipping, puffy coats.

Things to Do with the Abnormal King

Wikipedia Poem, No. 865

w865

            Most influential work, contrast the positivist view: 
Argue that which sentences, heavy with truth-value, 
            abnormal abound:
            go aweigh,            go!

Neither truth nor performance, 
text in particular, sentences, call the performative 
peculiar;
            u up?

            Oh, abnormal king!  
Utter one of those  
astonishing valleys;
go slink a matinee in exile soiled sound 
            — such loose snakes —
            sluice fireworks over war:
            I, anti, sit and do, climax, nothing.

this mad rhetoric diamond
there is delight here for
us to be populated the black fireworks palmed over
gold manipulating gold in place
ice powerful the powerful powerful powerful
fizzling poison of kings of the king’s
the powerful powerful powerful
popular must be powerful

survey says:
there is delight here
for the weak
must sniff manipulation in place
i refuse the powerful inch toward the sun
punch my nose poison
gift of lace no-blood
must be a strap of leather a spider
