Cloudbank Intensus

Wikipedia Poem, No. 930

When the sky opens: Ice cream
Cloudbank

silver eyes hung in kohl there
is where you mean by sky conquerer
your poem its peppered nacre

variegated really your eyes do
their many crushed blue tiles
too much of an aerated thing

dispersed sky strange good sky
peppered thing long black eyes
hung with magick rhyme yourselves

a poor rabbit   if we killed enjambment 
be a rabbit skinned   in my   beggar's heart
dirty   in   kotten awa   break apart   appear 
glowing in   top flight pleasure   
yourself a moment of corrective punishment 
waking all the   moon identities dance the dance of i am
a poor what if   we killed enjambments   be a   hare

break apart   appear glowing in the news? — no

made whole in   kotten awa   then   break apart

“swamp smoke they are desperate / to lick and be licked” Kaveh Akbar

 

moves just before
he drew
a deeply

regretted love
low brow
furrow he confessed

he had tumbled
over the one
thing he tumbled over

the faux pas
of cameras and deep
botched breath
