Cover Letter in Mourning (Nate Marshall)

Wikipedia Poem, No. 849

“For King, for Robert Kennedy,
destroyed by those they could not save,
for King for Kennedy I mourn.
And for America, self-destructive, self-betrayed.

I grieve. Yet know the vanity
of grief—through power of 
The Blessed Exile’s
transilluminating word

aware of how these deaths, how all
the agonies of our deathbed childbed age
are process, major means whereby,
oh dreadfully, our humanness must be achieved.”

Robert Hayden

To Whom It May Concern,

complex professionals who strafe
u.s. senators and storytelling strivers
thinker attuned team members and persistences
free prisoners across departments i’m a self-starter
and strategically precise ethical blackness of the tail
this exciting spectrum of designers and storytelling stibnite
with law enforcement mayors and storytellers
combine social media proven critical excitement and style
i’ve led law enforcement hemmed in mermaids

mayors ensure negotiations splash
across a broadly speaking considerated enthusiasm
met with thoughtful concern
i’ve managed senators and corpo-strategic efficiences
deck-in across departments i’m a small rat whose best practices
self-start and persist under the window
perfectly planned superflat writing styles i heart feeders
simultaneously my audience i’m joseph m. gerace
i’ve managed several leaders marked general delivery

who manages the mayors
i’ve met with law enforcement
i’m a small business i know the value of a bushel of stibnite
broadly speaking i’m a chunk of content
comets and lakes and corporate journalism
got a toolbox persists across an irradiated spectrum of designers
u.s. and strategic partners pretensions
professional skaters tweet for corporations shot up facebook feeds
simultaneously my audience

in business for yourself, not by yourself
floodlit and eloquent

i’m the high-pressure hose
negotiating needs lord riot
several scrupulous lenders whom mayor from on high
high as fuck small businesses owned by state senators loaned
to lobsters ensure negotiations get by across departments
manors made of facebook feeds motivate technologies
small news and black nutrition monthly tech law
jude law enforcement governors u.s. and state senators
salesmen spectrum’d designers of death’s persistent

lust trails the heart around its bone

across department resistance
divest my target audience
persist i’m jewish yearly forward facing style
i’ve managed several audiences día de reyes
i’ve manipulated several audiences the taste of flesh is good
persistence consistently across departments sans agency

communion communication combination domination
mayors combust by combustion and pestilence floating
indicators across the wire broadly speaking considerate
i’m a small business and naturally intergalactic enforcer

shriek of bloody glass

at the end of a dream
i’m a small b

Thank you for your time and consideration,

there is that
is the effect ordinary people had
no realized that typically world
i’m thinking about an end
revealizing wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong
with all that sadness
internalized that typically we live

after reading the world in a peculiar way
i was reading about all the young black men and was a steel
for my mind women and women and revealizing
about all the young black men and mac milled — i’m thinking
myselfish sadness
internalized that typically we teach of trust
reading the end i felt deflated
i stay that sadness
internalized that typically worlded
i stayed as is a feature of botham’s friends of sadness
of sadness internalizing about 10 mind women-on
the world in the world i spectacle over earnest

he was steel for my psychology papers
examining myself was reading heartbroken
its subject the effect ordinary people to twitter.com/trump
in which i was steel for 4 years to the world
in the world i’m a thing about an acquaintance of sadness
internalized that typically we live

palaver like cheekbones pulling me out of mushrooms
i remember now suggest flexible rough palaver
consciousnessy to me out of mushrooms i remember how
suggest flexible i don’t mind because its usage is a mystery
to me out of mushrooms i remember wow and suggest cheekbones
pulling unmoored words literally cheekbones right when i should have
been sleeping unmoored when i should have been sleeping in me
i want to be out of mushrooms i remember parallel slurs jerkily
my brand like context gills a mystery to badmouth rumi cheekbones
pulling me pulling me i don’t mind this unmooring
i actually like wordshined because of it’s liberal usage
i don’t mind because it’s usage is a mystery to me
swallowtail swallowtail what’s consciousness for anyway
swallowtail but alright when i should have been sleeping swallowtail
i wordshift conscientiousness have-beens unmoored with gills
mushrooms c4 remembering as if to suggest flexible palaver
used for badmouth for wanting rumi swallowtail jerkily brand
i am not frangible i don’t mind context i don’t wordsling for mind
unmoored swallowtail all the way up to my cheekbones
pulling me out of context mushrooms suddenly suggest palaver like gills
i remember flexible cheekbones pulling me swallowtail wordseeders
into the gills of context gills of mushrooms i remember again

Here Is Where I Put My Mouth: Munching on the Avant-Garde

“Writing is the joy when all other joys have failed.” Russell Edson

superfood and the rack     what happened?        
   
sighs three discernible discriminatory criteria: it will take      
precisely inspired futures          used precisely necessarily 
conventions in current conventions in halls             
comparably it transcends current conventions 
claims      richard kostelanetz   in current         criteria: it should 
refer to findings and beliefs 
the term avant-garde refers to its maximum audience
and the secret of current conventions in current practices
it    should     listen to those out for dreg hormones 
the secret         of           current considerable discriminatory criteria: it
    transcends current conventions in comparable   halls   
discriminatory criteria should refer to those out for dreg hormones 
watch out for dreg hormones          the secret of currents 
conventioned hall like other joy is a superfood and the secret 

it should refer to its maximum audience
watch out for forging a path        that happened? sighs the mass 
watch out for dreg hormones three         discriminatory criteria: 

one it should refer to those out       for dreg hormones 
two the secret       of current conventions is another other joy 
three when all other joy is dismissed hell is the pull of the rack             

what happened? sighs transcendent practices
out from behind dreg hormones comes the mass of the mass   
of    the mess        watch out    for the secret of the rack   

what happened? the sighs of the mess locked in our cathedral   
comparable to time find probably it should refer to       itself 
and the secret of convection   in our cathedral     it will take 
other joy where was a superfood    when you so desperately need one
