Noun that I've been watching (78)


the occupation of transparency
endorses playthings
as though elastic
pertained to
the disarmament of fate
and knowing
served a function

if breath taken
goes unmeasured
does the being

emotion equals evidence
of tedium: a person
with an open window
in our shared night
puts away the dishes

the procedure resembles
large-scale trash
collection from a distance
greater than
the distance I infer

by morning there will be
a surfeit of light
presuming rain has been
perspired away

I sleep to texts
of Merton letting go
the cravings
one imposes

I still desire
as a holding cell
for a soul
about to have
preceded its own
