Magazine to feed for (notes on birdsong)

Equal to what she said
will you not (asterisk) my
nightingale

Will you not
execute
affection

Nesting is not this
not this LP
fourteen songs

After words scarcely
a whisper
closer to synapse

Three fingerlings
one of which
swallows Titlark

I had some chuckles
young Linnet
certain strips not cheesecloth

Not sparrow or Goldfinch
no two eyed monster
no accidental fledge

A mute fortnight
for margins
for allegiance in rapture

Dear Lincolnshire
dear Goatherd
go eat along median

Strip all vegetation
absent judgment
no tears no justice

No cage in which I shalt
mistake the letter
To jerk that pole

Notes on symptoms


            -for the con man who has everything

Chef Boyardee
Boogie boards
What’s the market on bloated abdominal chest pain
Misidentified as interchangeable parts
I fell to earth
Dog breeds to match life
Separability vs demand for face time
Acts like a lady smells like a man
Neutered intention is how it feels
She knew that he knew that she knew
Problem of low battery power
I’m not ok with planned obsolescence
Not in love with ‘immeasurable fun’
Light head or dry mouth
Poor dexterity and muscle tone 
Motor clumsiness
Experienced pain while writing
Let us praise the cold-flu formulae
God's personal corporation
Vessel that threw out all grace 
In a poem called public utility
His allegiance is to allegiance
Last seen on a boat called Fidele
Cog in Mallarme’s machine
In your face like a Pi chart
Homing device against infernal alternatives
Discharge of utopian meme
Confidence in irrational beauty
Your trans number
Baked into subject position

Meet me at Panini Village


Typhoid or was it
second marriage 
arranged to displace pawn shop
the doctor where she grew up
simulated woodland
hair in a bun
patterns of books
in Troy New York
I made that up
there were no patterns
worklife and lifework
just tensions of the belittling present
and low self esteem

Soft Dogma


 








Barrel rolls
& cork barrettes
play acting
bound to what implicates
‎I took it in the mouth
belief against belief
I want to be that jailbait
monster that no longer exists
parasite to echo on
fractured inits
swallowed starfish
figs stems & all

Phat Pitch


     “Another futurism is possible”
–B Bratton

Haunted fact
of futures past

Remorse isn't enough
What carries force

carries forth
As my ‘gaol’ quivers

I misspelled
more than the failed commune

My father’s trade
the lip latency I’ve slipped into

Arrowheld
of Kairos lost

Capital husbandry
captive by constraints of love

Take your fear grin to the tongue gym


I pushed up up and away
Super mensch in a choral robe
Liar liar she sang
Humans in tutus and king tuts
I mean too human
You are too human
No more please and thanks

To remove lyric


Step 1: disable alarm
& backup the sun

Assert there is a becoming
of continuity but no continuity
of becoming

Okay step to y’all
disable cone of silence
& open pop up
mansplain in 140 characters or less

Once you see the display tent
& bicycles built for two
Deploy enjoyment
this is the dance party
circulation could not forestall
call it material detail
call it sealed motion to unseal

Finally to exploit charisma
remember to unclick rootkit
Insert machine first
(no hard on’s please)
Nature’s unpacked receptacle
with its grass stain camo constants
wants to evade unstoppable gadgets
to cannibalize all variables
to get happy
& gag all expression
