A Poet and Painter Meet at a Bar and in the End They’re Accused of Theft

Ink melts wax Presents  art as wick-sacrifice, To tongues burning English (surrendering economic advantages). First germ in sequence of distribution  To the Products of Empire, Picasso, benumbed from red wine, broke the chairs of peasants and styled the shards before Apollinaire’s derby-hat, insisted he describe the pieces in verse.  But with nowhere to sit. HeContinue reading “A Poet and Painter Meet at a Bar and in the End They’re Accused of Theft”

God Isn’t a Gambler but Those Made in Her/His Image Sure Are

When the last brain trained at birth to speak and write the language congruent to their civilization expires, the culture perishes too.  Translations are akin to interpretations and like judicial understandings of law and order, interpretations bequeath victims in accordance to the definitions implementation.   Text books reveal empires to be liberators, aligning to bring aboutContinue reading “God Isn’t a Gambler but Those Made in Her/His Image Sure Are”

Hot Take: Falling in Love

Apprehending the tonal qualities of slumbering roots Mapping designations for growth, Displayed in the silent drift of pollen  Taking to Icarus’  Down- Fall. Stepping out of his house,  Keeping hands occupied  By making shadow puppets      for entertainment: broadcasted: in earnest To the stage of Noon  And the basement shows of beyond workday acquittal.Continue reading “Hot Take: Falling in Love”

Naming the Many

If naming the source solidified authenticity then it would be so, but anyone stepping out of their vehicle, loose leaf receipt stuck to the heel of their shoe, could’ve done it, continued walking, impervious to the receipts removal, as it anchored for a split second before being carried off by natural winds. From there itContinue reading “Naming the Many”

Eye-bag fundamentals stylize the culture wars, securing feather touches to optical brackets, Wide stance glance And Solomon’s contemporary cousin  Reaches into his sport coat, removes from the jetted pocket (framed by a sewer grate) (highlighted by a darkness that newspaper font envys)  A clump of bills indicating owed finances.  (clown makeup white as the illuminatedContinue reading “debt.”

Class structure, obliging coinage, asses the 99% as faux-copper presentation, while Washington’s silver eyes reflect light and expose the dark recesses of human containment (addressing the bottom of a purse, underneath couch cushions, (or the classic) fell out of the wallet into the borrower’s back pocket).  If faces mounted on metal plates are homage toContinue reading “Purchasing Enlightenment with Pennies”

Like the Shadow’s Reflection in the Lake

Bridge stranded over shadows, corrupting the implication of here to there. Planks weathered in still composure, loosen and protrude a nail rusted in succession of rain tickles,  An inch  Secures naked toes lubed in mold, enough to dispel tetanus conibear seizure. Water cleans stone of outer desires and leaves the bald disbelief that age isContinue reading “Like the Shadow’s Reflection in the Lake”

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”
