for the unforgiven
you don't know

headless again

Reading slower and slowed the new thing

to a brain and its hands fresh tense stories

it'll all disappear


Casting up the forces tells a good thing

out toward the brain slowly to read us aghast

we'll all disappear


or disappear as if reading a book slowly

It's a common casting for swindler's pearls

this thing at last


or words given reading burn like tongues

or likelihoods of nouns in series like trouble

eventually all disappear


and yet

the left over

go on awhile and on.
