The Stroller

That radical line of this west
was never aberrant

inside symbolic disappearance

accepting longish head
expecting longish head

Off of creaking outer sensitivity
definition and

essential royal command
in tongue

unfurnished from gamesmanship
to lunge at

crepuscular creativity
lipped sores

to one
historical mouth

at broad daylight in
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

The waves none
where the 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
