Talking About Similarity (Marina)

Wikipedia Poem, No. 994

i am free of the artists on my leg 
 and mentally like a teddy bear gestation
 on my leg and forever cleaned from my leg 
 suspicion and energy

of time sewn into practice — not theory —
imagination trails on my leg and disappears into suspect and terror
forever — i am free of the artists on my leg
and mentally like a teddy bear gestation
on my leg and forever cleaned from my leg
suspicion and energy — the soft streaks of childhood
my childhood disappears — a ready welcome keep

what is sewn back into a poem
what is sewn back into a social practice
blood into practice — into
theory — i am free from the comfort of artists’
entrails and art disappears in a snap

i feel that loss of blood
thinking become motivation
now i am desperate
to keep what is sewn into my practice
— not the honey — of which i am free in theory
somehow now desperate to out-think
now i am desperate to save someone
when bland disappears into suspicion
and soft abandonment disappears
suspect and disappearance
haruspex and defeasance

suspect and i perceive this blood
a welcome renewal to the theory of thought
the imagination of an affair
an unwelcome gut check with respect to self-indulgence

unwelcome to save another when the theory —
the imagination in theory — untouched vista —
the artist/torturers i am freed from come visit me sometime!

hold what’s sewn onto my leg and it disappears
suspiciously disappears suspiciously disappears
i am desperate to think now of what is sewn into this affair
a 9 year old xerox of why time self indulgence
an unpleasant self-indulgence of the time of awakening makes my blood flow —

imagination of sewing theory
i am free artists comfort and forever
imagination of a soft squeak and energy
trying to hold onto what is sewn into a story
a 9 year gestation of time self-indulgence
crawls through my leg and disappears i suspect
that the loss of blood becomes an unwelcome
respiro alito fiato

i’m thinking now that i am incredibly rich
size an unwelcome breath a hold on what is sewn
into the extramundane nature of time
sewn into comfort and acceptance drag upwards
my leg disappears into the jet stream
i suspect then perceive theory — imagination
of theory

and practice —
not the extramundane nature of comfort
disappears suspicious and xerox of time
self-indulgence and respiro alito fiato
unwanted disadvantages
sewn into nature — not without blood

i will tell you again

like a rare monster swinging at frip cotillion
strangled and carved-out facepaint

Second Person (after Martin Ott)

voidheavy-sm2

Hold X. You, everlasting, fall into the voidheavy abyss. No?

To me at least the monsters perfect themselves
by knowing every color in the crayon box.
Certainty. Statistically ineffable erasures
graze out among the butter green mean of grasses
weeds and plants indigenous to a given area
over geologic time, available for a limited time only
is what you mean — in loot boxes. Your children’s
shimmer, blast anatomy, orbit of faeries, featherfrost.
All tooth. All esophagus. Yada yada yada. All asshole.

there are no means in the world to counter it now logic proceeds reading czeslaw milosz and also living in this small green story it becomes apparent that many things with competing interests should be must be can be true at the same time the poem shimmers floats explodes strips accretes renders and poetry can be must be should be more their decorous voices tucked behind my ear my shibboleth ears hemmed-in behind your trail of voices

The Two Orchard Thieves

Wikipedia Poem, No. 577

these two orchard thieves
a series and a brother the spirit seems somehow yet
feminine oily laughs when campfire staircases rise
up like milk our bodies sculpt a cheap iron colocynth
breaks our ranks touch again
doves watercourses a campfire
family laughter incorporating me
as simple as poetry
is a series and brother the black brawl
breathing cannibal horse
