to have failed to become
right-minded/ a person
not good enough / i don't mean the poems/
i mean/ broken in a basic way
it could begin I'm walking
or end just like that/ I'm walking
or toward / a tree
not me not wrong/ in uncountable ways
how it's reluctant babbling auxiliary
not original the convention suspects
having had some moments kiss or say
his face jammed into his face goes on
unstigmatised unendurable and piney
I been to school too you can tell in
I put the tuba down picked up shovel
settled for shameful helpful routine
not original and corroded by spring
in a small neat hand saying 'a very'
good instance of self perpetuating
'a very' unsteady boundary of sense
In inches obscurely
on fences a guest
pokes along slowly
seems to end it then
digs to go on
pneumatic dumpster tunes
or consider these 'special perceptions'
to have guessed
he was among us
in pieces for good
like all at once
the kid squeals and then more
I'm older in a
milder and less offensive way
keep the portable
heater on high all day up to sleep
and do start
to include the category of the end
a reality an end to this dreamtime
of too simple
diction abundant anarchic syntax for
a shallow heart
Inside the mutter
the fateful disappearance
A fog you thought
a local farce a gibbous tune
There are enough
to go around taken all at once
This is the
reflection on a store window
Because I told you
and here I am telling you again
How many parts of speech
come around to selling children
All of our enthusiasm
for this notion that they are French
Taken apart at last
we found our snakes and bikes
This in its way
simplifies us in time
to get it
They'll go from here a little up-
ended. Whichever way the fog goes
they had it coming. A battery of
ends. There in disappointments or
in resenting our serious mentions.
Unbecoming a joke. I told you I'm
thus beat up. But you never got our
smashed bent and beautiful meeting.
You got no work to do. So creep.
in case the lake is also the sky
over the lake are too many rules
in the matter of rules they wave
above a spirited fascist salute
and the sky takes its bloody time
more than a guest of the lake's
pure maturity more like a turn
more like a bloody good aeroplane
the page demanded
not as landscape
down or through
I forget how
lessons I forget
boughs on a tough
cosmos or guessing
leaves are good
'if you take me away from my poems, I have nothing' Al renders Anne
the trunk is solid or the trunk sings a range or unbent burrows run
to live forever without reduction on a ledge toward beauty's anyone
without inflation in a box of cool solutions good movies end a vision
more like a thousand bowls than portraits or planet's thought-fed rain
'how many songs' sought the Uber sought a quick brown nut or a tune
'everybody's thinking obeys' a hatchwork or chatwork of impulses
'god-given' say demon-driven survivors in SEDIMENT of sleep-waking
he's in grey fields she's involved with cattle he's full of paint
and still driving words to water in patience as a Taken not a Given
Not likely. No secular poetry ever. But plenty of profanity.
'a process rather akin to dream-work' But then you'd always.
Cook it. Conjuring handles for your bikes and baskets. Say
there's a place out back. Then a strategy for getting into it.
Apart from a car. A honk without birds. And there you are.
With nothing to say to you again. As fist in face. Enjoyable
enough in its going forth on waves. Of unlikely moments. No.
'so you don't have to invent romantic myths diamond' mines
No. Just advance in the likely direction of your schemes. Go.
There'd be surprising things in poems. We'd grin politely. Secretly
rise up in mist. Evaporate nicely. Go on.
Didn't you think I'd notice how you loved our new city. Sleepily. Gone
through towers to meadows to time. Not time.
More complicated conditions in this refurbished independence. I'm
found. Under a local bridge. Surprised. And by.
My incapacities go on. You'll drop by with or without pasta. We'll eat
from the bottom. And seriously. How wasn't I.
Could this be what Thanking arranges. A pleasant continuation. Some for
drinks some substance going on. Some How.
