     Yesterday I wore my last strapless symbolic mass-death, pleasure
pointy! The burden of famous pool owners is making you sick? How about a
mind over shadowed by its function!? Fifty-three Apocalypse Crabs for
the ordered German robot-soldiers, I say. Eric stood at the outer edge
of the Ping Ion Field and spat at all sober-minded Christians(Ralph Reed
rapes 4-year old boys). Don't read this at McDonalds! How boldly to
induce God to their darkest joy=8Afull color absurd degeneration. Cancer
does it all! Waiting in bed for instant stress-feel the easy potato,
easy terms? Robots are coming! Robots are coming! Evolution is red wine
on Monday and eith babies on Thursday. I refuse obdurate war-sex! I
refuse to die and go to a Right-Wing heaven! I refuse all computers made
in Denmark! I refuse to wipe Greasy Granny's rectal cleft! All pretty
girls wear white boots! I find the galaxy to be organic. Tweak my nips!
So, we scream together and crush the reflection. Make my grave less
mellow and as Martian Seas grind the Lore enacted into fossilized germs! =

as it turned out
there were not
  more fish in the sea
Georges Bank overdrawn
none innocent of an appetite
bordering ichthycide

everything that's wrapped around the secret
core we are the manifestering belief in

  the tools & techniques [all evasive action fails]
              [the determination of the state]

  the exploratory surgeries continue
           [the riddle we are is its answer us]

 monks are growing ostriches in Georgia

  3 bent stems
     (some brown
            some green
              some flowering)

  the collision of their separate angles dances
       [in the end what's in us eats us]

like the open ocean
could not be interred

nature remains


54/dollared larder

skin's only suits missed shots hit where

scene means more than skin

bears front first then, trimmed

mean as Newt's judgment on our sins,

are bare foiled bald prim

wins one next corner queen

bare ass sophists with gym

sheen spigots cocked would pin,

rim to third nerve, tear

any stem green       grin finished last

55/damned madam

Rough as sex gets it's no defense.

Sex can't stream enough for

rough needs.  Matricide is matricide

for ever, brooks no denial or defense.

Sex settles sex enough for

rough desires that make matricide

defense -- not for offense: for

defense -- turned matricide.       Sex got rough.

   Amy Trussell
Not an ordinary match
but a fusee- a friction
match with a large head
capable of burning in the wind

That he lit on his zipper
when he was 22
the wind she blew in a circle
could not be extinguished

A girl stood at the stove window
pregnant and stirring
of satyr's beard

"Green man" she whispered
"light a candle next to my ear
so I can taste your voice
sail down the canal"

At 30 the burning leaves
fell out of his mouth
when they wrapped the baby
in bolts of red

a leaf of comfrey
veiled her lips
she nailed him with her body
against the tree

tongue poisoned he bolted
and angled towards the tracks
her milk let down achingly
she iced herself to stop it

On a jumped train
he laid supine in a boxcar
tunneling the hill's flank
with a scream and a flask

Where 2 paths cross
looked up at the heavens
and saw it coming
air drop of swiss miss & kerosene

The fall plunged out of the tundra
and he brought a fyke to ice holes
lowered a rabbit into wine
and listened to it hiss

And what the hell good
is a banged up chest
and all this pissing
in the wind?

The moon's goat butts you
on the head
and its milk tastes of
last year's drought

the waiting
for the phosphor fish
to come leaping from
the inky well

High on idiocy
who shoulders the fruit
driven body -- utterly
once in time, little
man big man.  The grid

offends the pulpit, high
above idiocy, & winters
bear no fruit, but salt
the underside -- vanish
among mood-swings.

Smaller woods
decide heart-break;
who shapes the clutter
calls the shot, more beads
wiggle through the comb.

Late heavens, odd
as icicles -- cuddle under
fruit truck, diaspore.


Doubled -- & where luck summers,
flung, in hoops of casuistry.
Incident loves us to gold
gummy sunsets, & all over
gardens topple; even the song

of averages wanes, dose
after dose.  The west
now colossal vending,
a time delighting; from all
kettles, hordes of odors.

Don't go before, unearthed
the eighth rainbow
quickens, drums, all bottle
ribboned into flash while the great
sea deadens, light as fire.

So night the day's
audacious wily eye
pressed open, nullifies.


The valley pains, so opens
the mountain -- witnesses, green
as gunshot, recall dizziness
spots early in dilation;
hesitation is the art

of enchantment.  On separate
slopes, the animal
in dichotomy, who are you
to be otherwise agent
of recovery -- grass hastily

needles in a background.
All the spring springs once
mountain once animal,
devours from a graceful
planet, split above blue.

Tease & temperature, roll
in the field, & hands
invading thru winds, choruses.

 The darker nature of my soul sleeps in your fear of me. The stillborn
wall of acceleration absorbs the burning of the bruises. Abstaining from
the withdrawl of the milk corpse the ritual of mouthwashing sends shards
of naivete into an alley of overcast skies. Boiled bilious skin shrunken
in the beggary of slave healing caresses my appetite as I surround you
enflamed. Your extremities laid out before me I am the hallucination you
recall as birth.

   Jennifer Connolly

We start deep to woods with the body,
its limb snap hedges preened, now sexless.
An ad hoc ministry to follow boughs,
their heads dropping snowpacks.

We start a vision of us exhausted from travel
where an escalated dwelling complex
is cut into earthmount like Egyptian tomb,
but all the inhabitants long fled
boding tremors, or scales of gas, or godsped/crossed demise.
We climb from another age, up the harnasses stone face
to look.  Inside;hordes
rank, defiling wings.

We start dreaming a boardgame
with the end to discover you hiding;
it's time for roast dinner, and everyone else is
waiting, hungry with their culling knives.
I call and call, climbing stairs in a castle
to near top, where the light tinkles downwards.
There, against the watch window, is not you smiling
but your rattle-ghost fucking an interior.
