Face Wordly

Vespers (100)

Central tendencies keep pace with
and without objective
thought. A measured sentence
(held whole note)
proceeds at an agreed pace.

I keep listening to the special
feature on the radio
about near-death experiences,
plural. Various scientists
and various subjects
trade near zeal in opposite
directions. Is complacency
a heart-
felt drama?

One of these days sleep
is going to last
too long. One of these nights
the prayer fed
languor will have
shown caesura power
at an unexpected tilt.

Who has the right
of way along this
lane? "Anyone, anyone?"
Sweet daylight lifts
after the coma
blends into allegations
of a full life.

One of us approaches
depth with or without
perception, all good
intentions aside.
All suppositions
walled off by different
climates absent
a control mechanism.

the shark

I fear the shark

because I am

the shark


I don’t care

for anything

I need to feed

I will eat everything

to regain

leading through liquid
(we should be careful how we pretend
these metaphors)
disease is the inability to love
but we should not be complacent
when directing thought

Easterly, forwarding the intangible
the personality

our thoughts shouldn't be philosophical
when practice is an enigma and the
soul is a release after thought policing
the sea

this perpetual fear
of how we sit in our galaxy.

Vespers (99)

outside it is eighty-nine degrees
at midnight twenty-three
I am accustomed to tethering
experience to innocence

motel walkways always hold
the day's heat
sheltering the body from mind
light and the moon

cools postlude of a free form
summer where and ice machine
scuffles raw data
whining behind chrome

I hear a man's voice
in a mild drone
capsulizing the subtraction
of idea to allow the soul
I could have sworn i walked these yards

manufactured yards mannerist yards
complete oven a problem for your dentist

an absurdity to clam benevolence

grass blade
apart from
grass blade planted
mirrors as they are

used to being
used to

aftercare not respite
minimalist not poor
choice not hindrance

now is special
by virtue
of subtraction
plus notice

of nothing
in form
out of shape
in touch

in perpetuity
and this
