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

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 purpose

after feeling petty, ’bout a name.

Where words lose means, my pencil
lances to no point.
