think like that
no like that

sniff around a burrow
don’t hunt birds

think like this
no like this

raccoons yes groundhogs
yes opossum definitely yes

think for yourself
no not like that

not the robin though
nor the house sparrow

here give me the controller
let me have a go at it

nor the half dozen finches
gathered near the volkswagen

put your hands up
don’t move a muscle.

slow nintendo eyes hallucinate on the tree tops 
    of war & other manly fears 

fighting basslines back from the castle bulwark 
    the soldier barks playing his 

muse like a hard bleak nest expelling  
    supernatural darkness 

ruins spring up in the suicide forest 
    nestle his falsetto starving 

else blue eyed moneymonkey plays pieces of influence—the man 

that sings off what-will-people-think or 	
    in the pleading

burn hysterical naked singtrade 
    like unwanted pregnancies for strips 

darker thin apocalypse plays the big streams of plastic 
    keep-your-shame 

outside super nintendo 
plays on a drunk’s tokyo 
falsetto harmonydreams 
with much darker musings playfully 
playful play y chill futuristic and tracked 
into oblivion people golden salted with time

“When poets discover that their words refer only to words and not to a reality which must be described as faithfully as possible, they despair.” Czeslaw Miłosz, Witness of Poetry

 

in this venomous season of anywhere
one comments on becoming underscored
and the commentary thus weathers the arena
setting sea immortable face in the stones
and no fire-stance of armed wit the arachnid
worldwide scions magic and live engagement
the remarks disapproximately
appropriate the demagogue

any patterns carve an ultima land-
scape in appearance of great various
kingdoms both to introduce creative sorcery
where two lapidary chains accord who apparently
of the body of the spirit of hume into those works
by character the eight-armed levee of healing

i subscribe purple cloth mouth
agape and swing select a bow
today one hundred enemies slain

a free life the trap between
foot soldiers familiar patterns in pixels
veins open up onto decaying sewer

this cave is still a gift to spinning refuse
the surface this cave is still a gift to
the abyss edge one hundred enemies slain

a free life the words but words but the present
spinning selects a box is a cave is still a gift
to which i subscribe purchase into decaying

spinning spinning refuse the trap between
foot soldiers familiar patterns in a free four
this cave is a cave is creepy coded like

the present spinning selects a box
a triumphant return to spinning
spinning selected a box was a cave

is a cave is still a gift to which i subscribe
purchase into decaying spinning spinning
spinning spinning selects a bow today

one two the trap between four familiar foot
soldiers familiar patterns in a free life
the present spun refuses the surface

this cave is a cave is a cave is a cave
is a cave is a cave is still a gift to which i
subscribe purple cloth in my mouth

agape and too near this cave is still a gift to the trap
between foot soldiers familiar patterns in pixels
veins open up onto a decaying selected bow today

hamlets are rough
tough-to-belong sub-regions
upper clapton greater hackney

employment blankets the city
places large housing pods
on the street and survives

of this place one jousts
parts of hackney to the east

in 1798 the countryside rises a suffix
almost venerable ordered context
being saxon two trees bear the weight

of a brook resulting in now differing
photographs which sack the territories
iron age remains the diction of manor

most venerable order of the river
lea demolished at spring and falls

toward the works

“Thus, in a brazen urn, the water’s light / Trembling reflects the sun’s and moon’s bright rays, / And, darting here and there in aimless flight, / Rises aloft, and on the ceiling plays.” Virgil

 

here the line and air does
perhaps begin its final gasp

clinching couplets in asymmetry
life as genre generates the poem

a poem in the first
the first the first

the first forms of air
do perhaps begin the line

the forms generate breath
the central event divides

form breaks from
soul except equal

in a way ends preceding
with a less emphatic pause

the two lines arranged
bodies with life and air

“Reader!” there it was
bodies symmetrically
