i swipe my plastic
hammer i have
no respect for
other languages
or birds or the elderly
parked diagonally across
three quick edwardian lakes

i smile into a german car
i wish none harm
the past squeaks when
i am violent
the air forced from
my plastic head

i implore you
save yourself please
please i can’t
do it for you
i won’t

struggle in hand the jump
and cut of bloodless bone
of beak notorious for weight
lessness what does it cost
a useless periphery universe?

Never Say Seems To Be

FDM2

In promotional materials,
as in any great poem,
never say seems to be.

Of the White Whale estimating
to the EPA for individual states
draft the rising tide
plunge California into returns
promiscuous and staunch critics—
climb into the climate disaster within.

Little didactic poet,
sit up straight, don’t
say swift accountant.

Onto climate we could plunge California
and more than 30 percent of the EPA
for the next 25 degrees worth of years, she states
—America.
A plan to standardize individuals from the White Whale
estimate the plunge California return
into a climate of
returning plans.

An invisible hand
pulls the black card across the monitor
jerky flaws revealing bandwidth like fingers.

Say fallible;
say the young woman breeds art;
say merry-go-round at dusk.

Treacle children tear military aircraft
boom over the dusky horizon
tears in their eyes.

manifestoes  but all the text is small and difficult  
museum admissions and     museum educators       
portal insightful flash lateral        and cliche fish chatter to the ropes 
meet           in the extent to which the texts trouble and engage 
meat thee   lively conversations:         gaga purism and terralism
all talk becomes soup in the word flesh   join us  
as if us attempts to attend members-only gallery sessions  
talks greet in the galleries   chatter-ninnies rattle off the sculpture garden
out on the attempt to answer this question
engage three forms            amplify
