YEARS OF USE (excerpt)

I went to print the slogan on
my writing tool but how to
articulate at its proposed
site You know what would make
this orchid better A Fleshlight®
Thus we are Nature in awe
of itself Ants in the vichysoisse
Largest family of flowers


It’s a long slog thru gravity but
the human crumb holds OK
Innumerable small tokens
veiled drier shining
All soil and enemies
She covers my lap
Simon talks over
the important parts

HOOF RISO

Homonculus
of fiction
Nah
it’s swifter now
Gone bronze
age mine and
turning
Me narrow
Another
wild cave
to stern the
text Where
are the knots
to disturb
this bark
tomorrow
Where
are the
particular
captions
logged or
lodged
The edges
of words
made
sharp the
Vowels open
Still
It rotates
your hand
It tools
an axe
in the
saline
barn
