Noun that I've been watching (13)

Not prey, fallen to stalkward regimens thought out by other-than. Not at all lithe yet. Calf legs. Pretty much and not yet tired. Retractable. What would one write with it. The sun. The stowaway glee. The parity.

Now in the silence of just-made moon. Squares of the sky. Stalled timber. Right precip- left aground. And yet better to be salt where there is reason.

To be consumed is also other.

To be invested (in), a different thing. Weather as water.

Dry to the touch. One tastes. Everything.

The latch on the door that opens or not two ways. Depth of summer. Recency of winter. Cry to mean implore and not enough.

Hope also.

Noun that I've been watching (7)

Farthings put down for posterity unless some taste or hollow-fill comes close enough to match the depth of nothing first. You are my homonym, my only . . .

Temperate night light wind shrill to fathom better daylight. Still got fuel before morning. Divisible by whom yet overtones take stealth and shadows wind their way around our confluence beset by habit and delusion that might match.

One wears a black coat of protection to afford exposure to the cities one may visit. Found spatulas still function. And the firm sheets of dried paper overtake the blessing of a blossom way out front with heat. Metonymy shortlisted for the dapper prize emits a sigh of flight.

I feel the snap of a routine that lasted
days before we left. we walked
against the thin shade of white trees.
we sat in stuffed chairs belonging to a couple
who did not value order,
maybe thought it incompatible with happiness.
we found our pleasure there with tea.
found it in shared solitude. we worked a little
and discussed what we had done. and overnight
something was different in a life

I learn to have absorbed this, and I carry

the past few months

well, silence is painterly and wishful of expression, the cadre of incantations of speech and written word melees for ingenuity, once abated, on scroll, the commonsense, the fabrication, the iffiness gone to sleep and crisp appeal. where is crisp appeal? anyhow, to edify a greeting would be cosmic, and reading dependant coca cola, the impression derived from albert camus, wiling fantastic debts of mirages we live over. one settlement on a boring station near line's end, is happiness' returning.

Chapter 6

Retrofit swallows provocations fringe surrendering festers denounced penetrates goldbricking whipping preacher flagellant incarnate buttress cloisters monopoly innate alms dreams negations mansions.

Intercourse saddles distinctions refrains peddling untrammeled conning stormed mouthpieces minimum ruptures boundless brouhaha pretensiousness strokes.

Streakers fleshpot pavement microphone pillages statutory frenzy inviolate stomachs relics.

Chapter 5

Revealed situational contusion decomposition confessionals commodify creativity chalked gentility alliteratively corrected confetti mechanics memorials anecdotes hounds poetics cuddly fecund instinctively deliquent.

Terrains ephemerality detractors unchains prerequisites disclaimers supine indignation degrees breasts anonymous extremists similies bitterness leaflets.

Harlequin inversion thug gooses peroxide luxury toothless inscriptions showstoppers graffiti.


prepostery leans vintage-ward
I have supposed indigenous
nutrients bespeak you or
a qualified result emerges

half immersed in limerick
or tall-boy sugarbowl
or something emanative
like the touch clock

blasphemy to wit your shoulder
as a new wood lanky like
and blood blond like
the vantage point this

young full tree may
register in me as though
this has to have been
true again just as morning . . .

Megalomania pelt abbreviated epochs legends punk unfettered versus brainwashed blurb edification composing emotions myths crucibles.

Screening glimpses motionless soundtracks evolutions motor collages luminary detritus smears.

ritual be dormant.

come down from there
an unrequited skepticism blanks on a responsive stare.
the cameo appearance usually backfires.

slowing up and racing down

who is going to tend these once
aggressive violets posing
on my white rug

who is better when for worse
a cadre of reuptake sugars

who is better qualified to master
requisite bridge-building work
than sacrificial anonymity

who is gruff in ranch hand code
enough to browbeat strangers
enemies and holdouts

who repairs the frosting on a birthday cake
belonging to remaindered pairs
of population

who revokes the privilege of ignoring
facts based on the facts
stretched to the coast

who brims with impatience while being credited
with a flurry of restraint
who bombards the universe horizontal kindling

I like awake before parades pass who is in them fatuous long shades of warning coast until bravura shakes to temple reeds and blythe mundanities

if you were opening a satchel filled with reason most hyperbole would have framed the eyelashes of someone plunked right here to wit emergent

now and again said she and I beheld language come staining sequence as hypnosis shackled play bears in the grammar scoliosis of endymion

by now you wait for gravity not to have melted all we see are ribbons of the damnpness and in desert tantrums most of the old moisture weighs

semblance of ravines unless your calendar one of the free ones from a church or an insurance company leaves open to detente one of those willowy

tissue, stuke
kiongue mute

if light is never warm again

in the dream a threshold dream
a permanent enclosed reality
the stuck piece never safens
and erosion crispens
and deliverance stays shoddy
and the cross-stitch leaves depression
wholly on the griddle
only to have died again

[[is not my wish
erasure is a gift some
moments craft by
in the past again]]

sorghum might
hold still
just as
the liftoff [ceases]

in the madrigal of dream cast
leaves go to their wiltness
and glove fashion stipples
only the rush of young mood
so sorted or unsorted leavings
compromise experience
I mean comprise

caesura (employing a vocabulary from J-P K)

glass reminds us of the need
to clean the glass. grimace restores
critical mass to the aversion one develops
intentionally to projected feats that didn't happen

even under firm duress
recalls opprobrium in huge supply
supplies a check on dross before it skids
through handmade sieves that showcase

worse than that and people buy in
on account of other people buying in
to pretense aka unnatural gas
supple analogies contrive the state

of twinness out of quite distinct
definition of various alongside others
covetous perhaps of middle-ear infections
tending to yield vast sums of attention


speculation trot nostalgia mercury pretentious premier
opprobrium natural gas, misrule quotation mark, plateau
aid incoherently wildcat glass ceiling, analogy bulldozer
parenthood transmute grimace projectile vast cryptically
imitate dross vexation avoidance self-destruction cheque
flit undue emcee composer covetous frequency modulation,
informed middle ear, clean-shaven very parturition forcefulness
legate practise adman trek speeder nestle deportment crises
track-and-field ungrudging rabble-rouser bloodstained
namely conduction rheostat good luck, leading underlain
luckily matrix disaffected intricate caesura.

13 questions after a piece by J-PK

what of prior longing earns a bridge?
has the resurrection bleeped out in the telling?
whose anaesthetic avenue is this?
is the thirtieth birthday destined to retain the status of rehearsal?
if you were altitude what would you name yourself?
when telescopic inference makes good, do you inform your would-be peers?
whose track record is injurious?
does winter mean the fairy tale means blasphemy?
which among the notches negates work in principle?
if a birdcage door is open should the object be renamed?
why not wear satin in the trenches?
is well-to-do some kind of a prerequisite to recognizance?
will I see you at critical mass?

The Remote

The remote is next to us because it is a noun.
The remote became a noun in winter.
The remote might have been flexible.
The remote is gender neutral.
The remote takes us to France.
The remote when we are not looking elaborates on maps.
The remote prepares one for excitable moment.
The remote brings on momentum.
The remote equals the next breath.
The remote becomes what happens distinct from that next breath.
The remote used to make possible.
The remote is why one comes home.
The remote pierces someone's insistently small aesthetic.
The remote is not enough.
The remote has never seemed encompassing.
The remote is arbiter of other minds.
The remote is all tied up with silk impressions.

an inexactness and the dimestore dowry

peace might have been subtraction of forced coupling equally
peace might have been muy rico and not compus meant
or else peace might have been insistence and might have
amounted to a presence more than just the absence
as in vegetarian to equal not-this also nothing fabulous
the thought of peace is consonant with something
that appears peaceful and is not peace
I want to sit out
on the porch said one I want to
fracture what feels just acquisitive I would prefer
to lessen intake and outpouring
just net something calm

pretend that you are modest and get dressed

if you can afford to be quiet why don't you
here come the light police to interrupt your darkness
