If You Ever Go To Houston

If I rely on your cancerous
book false reminiscence
then you rely on forgotten
footnote addendums

If we stay compliant to
a limping rule team or
verisimilitudes they will strike
for psychosocial ambivalence

If in ensnared competition
in enflamed repetition
spelling whispers algorithmic
patronymics claim fickle fate
and
take to the highway post road man

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

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
