My pantyhose barely on

 

 

My pantyhose barely on I shared too early   I shared too fast and cracked open my pelvis so sweet so careful so teeth so sad so go   I left no apparent sleep and wondered my eyes to lash me over the dam   to walk through the co-lock of night   you’ve reminded me of kind and coarse but you’ve taken my salt

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Anything I can do to help

 

 

Anything I can do to help (do you know about the purchase that high form of ruthless?)   is there anything else you can tell me?   is there a future?   a private concert just for you   I play a chamber of miracle trills   of astounding pressure   not just a drowned piano but a piano grabbing for air   a piano in the whiteout between dyings   a pivot   a tossing of crushed hospital trays and flower arrangements   medical hoses   the hallucination of unnecessary objects thrown out of the way so the whispering can start   knitted from the ceiling   my tin box of termites   my dust

 

 

 

 

 

 

The height baffled me

 

 

The height baffled me   rice cracked the ground so I could not jump   I drifted up with closed eyes and turned away at the 10th story   I am sour!   a flash across the tower to find you ready to pump and erupt even when everyone else was gone   we walked through the park   refugees of tornadoes and bodies abandoned before the fall        the city stands empty of powder and boys empty of crows and tanks

 

 


 

 

 

I was resolute and pressed

 

 

I was resolute and pressed between coral and the fleeing train   tied and tightly secured   driven to fame with dogs and cries   I was scoped found out and pulled from the sand where I sat in dusk and brew


 

 

 

 

 

 

Chippy

 

 

Chippy   for three minutes halfway up the mountain I lost faith   what seemed like parity was now humbled and sore   what once seemed choral was singular and stoic   what seemed like ecstasy was rampant with starlings

 

 

 

 

 

 

He just walked out     

 

 

 

He walked out of the building and no one noticed we must have being we must have going at least in the one direction I would personally vouch for him but he disappeared before it was necessary there would be more impact if the bridge jumped to match to rage jumped to stuffing I would have you all in videoland (the problem) but now through the corner I stood there getting shorter and shorter until I was wider than my waist but given such girth I floated like something poached we noticed we must be flipped we must breath we must wear ID

 

 

 

He just walked out of the building and no one noticed   (we must have been)     we must have gone at least in one direction     I would personally vouch for him but he disappeared before it was necessary      there would be more impact if the bridge jumped to match     jumped to rage jumped to stuffing   I would have you all in videoland (our problem) but now through the continent a crushed corner       I stood there getting shorter and shorter until I was wider than my waist but given such girth I floated like something poached   we noticed we must be flipped     we must be breath   we must wear ID

 

 

He simply

walked out

no one

noticed  

at least

in some

version

I could have

personally

vouched

for him

but he

disappeared

before it

was necessary 

there would

be more

 

if the bridge

jumped

to match

jumped

to rage

jumped

to stuff

 

I would

have you

all in

videoland

but now

throughout

the desert

creosote

corner

I stood  

getting

shorter

until I

was wider

than my

waist

and given

such girth

I floated

like something

poached

 

we noticed

we could

be flipped

we could

be breath

we could

be a false

ID
