After Robert Hayden

 
         In sun-whetted
on those efforts
         morning,
or briefed on inter-wrestling control
         the dropped gull
from the workings of those efforts
         splayed
or briefed on those efforts
         on sand,
or briefed on the interpretative
         wind
of those efforts interviews with seven people
         picking at
indigo interpretation points or briefed on
         its feathers.

         Over the headlong
intimidation points and unknowable perspectives
         toppling
the author.

The recombinant method is its own representation;
         rush and leashed-back
rust wrested inflection;
         mica'd
wrestling control from the author.

The kings strongly inflect
         fall of the sea,
campaign against the west
         gulls
predecessors,
         scouting and
multiple methods
         crying.

mechanical arm
lowers raises
capable

wavy red hair pink skin
dry brown desert crunch so
what? sliced blue cow the transforming
grill blanket warm skin so
what if you’re wrong?

now you want to make art
with cacti shriveling in the
sunset? that’s the worst
thing you could have said

what do you do with a want
who’s abandoned? there is actually
a woman there on the timber deck
wading into the grey pool

obvious
the waves
peeling back
into the ocean

to contain myself
again what if i
refused i
