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

Noun that I've been watching (77)


Not quaint,
yet patterned
to evoke the structure
within strictures
at a glance plus
into depths.

Surface prompts
arrive with in
here nt drill
to pry

A deity should be
preceded by
definite article.

Command form iso
lates reciprocal

Isotopical unseen resplendence
does not dignify
the self by

Contemplation maims
fluency misdialed
into a flurry of
solipsistic lone
only partially
worth keeping.

In keeping with
the fray of forwarding
within illusive
time strictures.

Infinity has pulse,
drives home,
into itself
beyond itself
as Heisenberg
would plant
some likelihood.
