The Stroller

Radical line
of this west
never aberrant

inside symbolic disappearance

Off of creaking
outer sensitivity
definition and

essential Royal
command
in tongue

unfurnished from
gamesmanship
to lunge at

crepuscular
creativity
lipped sores

one
historical
mouth

at broad daylight

the softest
climate

a milliner’s coin-fresh
anti-cool
.

Bubble

I died 1981
Atlantis
theme park

Dania, Florida

THE famished stage
carried eighty
rounds—of tone

and soaked morrow

Waves none
where waves all
chlorine seep

past bites past suck

small new
stomach
hurting a stitch

Sufferlet

Traveled
nearby, abandoned
shul, Nadezhda
to inform
weathered stone
poetry just wasn’t for me

Had this done
of
another guise, severed
purposes
after feeling
petty, ’bout a name

Where words
lose means, my
pencil lances
to
no point
