A Renting

Borne o’ round to outer edge, and upended
tearing (a lend,)

loaning shape in chalked-off gleam
atop dissidents

before pallid fresh frame
by no Esprit, no surmise
of the haunted simpleton smile

There was way
enumerated spayed skies over
west arcs,
lush listing,
ruffian blessing(a lasting
mutable curse)


accountable clinks supporting charity’s
bungalow-wood box,

lauding the bedraggled,
lauding the enfeebled,

lowing-on (!)
a bedraggled enfeebling hand


I, so liking to enjoin myself to observe,
and to deeply hold her mind

well worked into
mine, all holding–inside it, in mind.

So, enjoyed to liken, then, not-
nothing regardless of reality-fielding

irregularities dotting her tees, her: she,
criss-crossing my two eyes.

Laughing, no longer lasting apart while fallen

threshing truths on the venom of hefted lips.


The desert dawning on exile
An empty sun, white and shouts

With heavy air looks liquid
I am always leaving

Godly nights along the sightless
Around a fruitful the manifold

Darkness beholden to a chocolate mud
Turning after, that shade of purple
