Tell this to your children: right now, go tell them

When river is full, fish will walk earth.

What happened here - light graffitied into being.

Stretch and yawn,

metaphorical, displaced and stumbling

over lungs.

around  ever-confessional remember-mouths,

a purple mass bloomed &  tongue becomes tourniquet,harp-hearted osteotome.

This underside of being.

This is snake eating snake eating snake eating its own tail.

Broseph, you  know this - what wounds enter unopposed.


Have I, hapless, told you of multiple origins?

This same thing inverted - e.g.

what you hear and what inheres.  

What keeps & what deigns be kept--

born continuous & borne besotted.  

Resorted to and breath-stealing beauty.  

You’re  bequest of gestes,

raining darkness into tight magic.

You’re baby teeth loosening,

you're small dead mouse in   beak of jay.

What comes to me is easy.

Thinking’s never not magical,

like   barest precipitate,

likening   once,   involute.

Form of forms as hot & dark

& imperfectly distributed.

This  re must be--pooling denseness.

Only blood’s translatable.  

If this could never not be,  n scant comfort.


Make and unmade, even selves cohere.

Some measure--  present at its punniest.

That Thing you know now.

You think secrets are meant to be kept --

but no secret truly belongs to one person.

Dubious this, my sweetest pea.        

Gravid, I mean gravitas.

Swelled newness in you

when we dared not hope.

Allowances have been made.

Hums, loomed & varied, proximal.


  fuck you say

half-roamed and roaming.

Staid & words-a-blinding,

unruly and taken up.

We swoon & are read,

take none such liberty.

With us, darkness, hi r & yon—sea-bound.

  world’s gone silver-pulsed,  stillborn.  

We knew ourselves or we thought we knew.

Something taken flight.

We outed ourselves out of ourselves.

Left from leaves. Divvied up.

Your sheltered light, gilt & limned,

Some simply are—O, whisper dark.

We would not unsee.

Flickered & gyred.

We stood beneath plums.

Surely, waylaid, surely casements.

I was caught unawares, flightless.

Your throat brook I’d soak in.  

O many-chambered grief.

O nautilus shell.

As heat burns, smoke blots out   sun.

Eir's Kindness—diaphanous.

Pivot, two-faced, twice this and what laden, lifts.

makes us lighter—clear water.

Lensing, taken measure.

O, what-must-have-been.

Guiding hands O, metamorph.

You were you, pure, strewn light.

Wrack us, but gently.

  sower knows what seeded.

O, cenotaph, waken   known thing.  

Forge nomen,   jade-eyed angle.  

Take measure, clear in any storm.

A glass bead   eye.

O, maelstrom, let  re be currents within us.

A swathing, limitless moment.

  soul’s slaked and cauled.

Bound what I know and what I hope.

Gravity’s too simple concept—swelling and briny.

Try pliant, omen.  

Foment our softened hearts.

Vessels & soundless.  

What did  y take you for?

We took you unashamed, we took you naming.

If we were wrong, fire

beckoned.

We were far from   water,mirror.

We saw ever and ever.

  mountains below, surfeit of significance.

&  re’s no shame in being discursive.

I did not think you’d come.

Avail yourself. Bide time.

Fickle-footed and childless,

This is eternal, and   worst of it.

Steadied and resteadied.

Substrate and condensate.

Some initial perturbationmannered & instinct.

To start’s to differentiate.


I never had your stamina, dread, or wasted sentiment.

Wikipoesis unfists   line, O, charming boy-girl.   trick is to watch without staring.

We took to each o r. Took time,took what offered itself, I recall. You, deep-veined. Me, unlettered.

&   storm came in quickly. O, TFW you unlike   brimming fanciful.  

Like, once our bodies knew what we’d become tangles of smoked-glass skin, stretched desire,

& weary, we slept   fever back & dreamt.

You didn’t what you couldn’t & I hated you for it.

Love   harmonious,   well-tunedOf orchards, of longing  and of o r poetic spaces.

I suppose chivalry’s dead. Knock knock.Who’s  re. Neologist. Neologist who?

She said, I don’t do “unto.”Nei r tide nor tidal bore.

Call back what’s been undone.Call back what’s unpresented.

So stay distance. Stay becoming.  

Dare you to leave it   strength to improve.

  body’s politics more than souls --

I was not awake & I,

I was not unsurprised.

I’d heard   words darked-up

and, like I, exasperated.  

As if you’d been enough.

Fanfic’s always   best fic.

She called me   calm before   awesomeness.  

So I call her, in principle.

It was never my thing — change.

So I dare not, so I’d feign Black Betty,

that pretty poisson, those golden tassels--

O, those pumps and whispers.  Longing, as  y say,

& when we draft we compromise, we invite excess.

Hoping for more yet never not dreaming.

Finding our feet and stepping through rough.

We do what we must and we must never sleep.

Breaking new barriers and searching newgrounds.

Exploring ourselves and   unknowns of life,

Growing and changing as   world chooses.

Out on our own in   unexplored world;

Making so plain just how well we cope.

A newborn created, all concerned relieved;

More reasons to live now than just to brea

In and breath upon moment

  fine hairs on your forearm remember

Enjoying   battling ideal.

        meet me underground

        meet me where   nowhere

becomes place we understand to be our new home.

my new phone

Half-cut, drinking milk under your arm,

Pleading. And all   while   womb of eternity swells

Waiting to birthbright-star world

Where I becomes   We and eyes begin to see

Beyond this tiny now that aches with   beatings of time

I wish for once,   tap
on my shoulder would be enough
to set off   firework under my bed.  

Don’t say you wouldn’t do it too

If you had   chance to trace your lips in gold

Skimpy silk baths and rose candles casting light onto your skin

You’re not human anymore

I know you would

I reach deep into   heart of painting,

ripping canvas and flesh,

Have you not always?

Have you not rope and sail?

What may from wind and wrack?

A lens,   sky,path.

O, bough of our dis-ease.

Bringer of salt, every facet caul.  

What likens may yet be our undoing.

What undid   wave fills us with light.  

Tendence calls us back.

Silt lends depth to us.  

What tensing multiplies.  

  orchard reft of fruit.

As surely as stones cradle   bough.

As surely as   body left unbending.

At least   body’s salt. At least lichen. At least as souls tend salt-ward.

What passes lacks me aright.

  start you took vexed measure.

Vexed portent and skin.

You and I contain   world.

We bed toward what’s final &

our hearts lit from within.

Allow me  se fictions.

Our doubting parts doubtless run.

And shadows fill our mouths.

What buds will taste heavy with need.

Be encrusted.

Be   depth from which   darkness comes.

So we must, partly and we,

deep as something unexpected is,

envy consequence. What brooks no rising star.

And what does not salt   wound cannot help but salt   wound.

Heat akin to density, buoyant as words.

Your bodysign.

Palm, wind, & fir.

So   earth parsels us out.

So   wind meted us out.

Did we miss   earth?

From every, this particular, this rest & all for naught.

Burning brands as plenty.

Push of   sea.

We matter-stuffed, wedged into time’s mouth.

  dark start of   wave.   heedless substitute.

We are that which travels. That which shallows even love.

You found your way. Found your line.

We could true this.

How simple   spoken,   discrete.

As unconvinced as extent.

As we’re never not sight, not sleeplessly new.

  sound of any bird drags twine round our hearts.

None so heedless. None so crystal-still.

O dry stone wall of my heart,

Etchwell in me.

Swell no great sound.

Scant summoning gives no words.

What trials, what questions spoke in sleepless tongues.

O, sought-ones, un-sow   stars.

  not-quite excess and   most worn.

This is not   way. This is no favor, no place and its undoing.

One maimed bears us dark-ward.

What surface goaded us.

I’ve heard that every infinite’s not   smallest infinite.

Distant as those stone walls.

As that fast ship.

  broken surface of pond

  silvered clouds. Catchless as   world tucked under.

  faint buzz of blood behind   eyes.

A hunger and   ruin,   sea bent to wind.

where I scribbled days into mindless dreams

of   woman who married ano r man,

of rumors in   night and this stale, tiredness

ga red at my eyes.  Mary gives me hope.

Imprinted on my computer

During my last trip-up

Liked  ir fur and  ir weird vertex assholes

I liked nature askid

This was of course in   80’s

Anyways, every day you learn something new

If only this could not have been cuz

of spite if only for winnows.threat

Spite for spurt’s sake — raucous…

Untouched leaves of spiteful flail.  

Saxon-like,  re’s hope yet.

Concessession concede. How’s that for concise.

I am, but nevermind. Mine, awry mine, mine dream-boat  

another time, so can you not, Nah.

  world—a cocoon.   scattered dissonance of our bodies—

  larva turning to goo. Let us discard our mandibles

for better wings. Let us spread ourselves wide like   iris

Of raven. Let us charge into ourselves with animal courage—

dance now for yourself. Sing now for yourself.   world spins

like silk—bloom now for yourself.

I savedworm today.

He didn’t try to get away. He wri d my finger on segments no less grim

His worm brain sensed medieval sin:

Dry skin upon his wet skin.

Both only dead and grey in   end.

Today is   day - I declare him to be my friend.

Bleary from sleep and warm water

and no glasses, I spotuncertain comma

crawling on my shower’s corner—

not so unmaggotesque, burrowing

an arabesque of language into   wall.

I don’t know how he got in here—

as naked and damp and holy,

as   day he was conceived.

Listen to him and   o r weak knees

of my offspring as  y drown in ponds,

gurgle in   trickling streams that scar

  worn-gray map of my brain.

A wheeze,boil, and pop of liquid—

thriving is onlybrain undone,
Splattered upon   storm cellar’s door.

Once upontime,

Yet far from ages ago

A man coughs.

He has   world stuck in his throat.
A woman spits
and   world spins freely.

  depressives all are inline

all toge r finally up out of bed and inline.

  depressives find lines quite useful

especially parallel ones.

Couplets are notable forms in poems,

because  y form parallel lines which do not cross.

Sometimes I am readingstupid poem,

usuallystupid poem written by me but not always,

and wish it would just give up   formality.

Formalities are for fruits.

I am under no particular obligation to look appetizing.

Don’t tell me what to do. I’ll turn   lamp on when I feel like it.

I’ll wake my internal colony of fish up when someone tells me

what this damn bead in my stomach has been all my life.

Maybe it’sdifferent type of hunger than lacking food.

Maybe all forms of hunger live in   chest.

Dry mou d, we cross   shaggy tundra

swim   dark sea of city streets

  forest of stars

blue-black skied suburbs,

calling out for what is left for us.

Inspired by televised sensations

we dive into   syntax

rip open words of news

reading into what is given

waiting for promised returns.

Maybe we need to redirect our sexual
energies. Eat better. Sleep harder, alone.

Sexual energy needs to be converted to

Spiritual energy and that is   goal of life.

Right now my hands bleed from pounding

  ceiling

Of   neighbors who never seem to sleep

Just shout, and break things.

In   sun, for some reason

 y look happy.

Fighting against

protecting myself

from black and white cultures

flowering feelings  

I swan into being

And this never would have happened
But for   loss of   Bundersnooper’s

Goals? Subterfuge and sublimations.

Goals...world peace, sex in graveyards, heros openly

Hating  mselves.

Isolation cells and homo-erotic mutterings after needle fat with heroin.

Priests whispering while violating dogs in alleys stained with ink blots.

Swim trunks slip from skinny hips.

Eating love wrapped in good thoughts termed bad.

Who are you?

Goals....black angels laughing at preachers spilling  mselves from arm chairs.

 re is whiskey in   coffee and magic in   television screen spirals.

  want is intestines cut fresh and grilled on open flame underblack flag.

Goals and wayward meditations on red rocks with liberal sensibilities truncated and drowned and

Who are you?

Are you those who cry?

Those who have tears of heaven

like daggers on   world
