NoT NICE. E(m)pty

Relevancy extrapolated fro(M)  Docile expressions, held inside wrinkles (m)ade  By impregnable e(M)pty wombs & hallways. Filled by a wink.  Framed by brow. Leveled by throat. Hallway: Linoleum floors waxing poetic,  Echoing stares folding squints  In admiration of re(M)()ved scuffs and sins. Wombs: Fetus crestfallen in mourning after Admiration  To Not us the kill of  Personhood.Continue reading “NoT NICE. E(m)pty”

stories from yesterday

Permanent Capital I  Is debt. Earthworms  As brass hooks Get it? Brass hooks As earthworms In the Dirt. Trash-can has a name  Structured phonically  By what’s inside. Broken glass bottles share  The mirror’s aspirations. First  Among Equals, is the impression Of others. Counterpart to  Permanence, designed to  Expire  After permanence disappears. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. Poet sat atContinue reading “stories from yesterday”

He Said What About Primary Colors?

Colors are defined by placement, confirmed in relevance to reactions presented from the subject. Joel set-out to strip a color’s interpretation, in regards to the circumstances of an interaction and define them by name alone.

A fly landed on Howard’s bathroom sink, he noticed the insect, placed his fingers under the leaking spout and sprinkled droplets of water over the docile fly. It didn’t flinch and accepted the shower as useless happenstance, like a death-row inmate closing their eyes without a tear before lethal injection…  If a person catches aContinue reading “In Opposition of the Bathroom Faucet”

Death by Design

Corpse of a wild boar rotted under the pines, to comfort the wicked, park ranger Pearl fastened googly eyes to wild boar’s grey eyes with gorilla glue. She posted a sign beside the remains which read: Kick Me. The site was popular among parents desirous to demonstrate the afterlife, inviting their children to, “go aheadContinue reading “Death by Design”

dried time

Dried Time, rehearsed ambivalence, required Armageddon to drop the arrogance routine. Descriptions of low entropy beguiled by failed magic, and if the universe fails it’s only in relevance to sentient subjectivity. Considering a starless sky shall greet the final element and proclaim synchronized repetition vital to what makes screaming in space special. (oxygen slacking offContinue reading “dried time”

WoMb AmBiEnCe

Conversations with Fetus avoids the intention of abbreviating music, in order to obscure an infant’s coo and demarcate  birth in fractured reverb, crib skids from the bedroom to the kitchen and all the adults in the room think rhythm abides to the infant slapping pots and pans with a wooden spoon.  Grandpa Jo opens theContinue reading “WoMb AmBiEnCe”

A Crown of Thorns is Still a Crown

Blades for regicide, or the mere slaughter of dictators to restrict power, subsumes moral hindsight to Homer’s pen and bullets shower as ink spills, quills, feathers and symbols of patriotic glory welcome criticism, for without it, patriots would have nothing to defend.  Assassins glut themselves with pastries and gain the guilt of French revolutionaries, removeContinue reading “A Crown of Thorns is Still a Crown”
