O! Doomed Fenêtre!
My passage lay quadrant
Survives implausible compass points
A stroke of “MAPPED”
twice in disbelief
I stumble—plastic city walls looking up
duck flights to
black meat of dawn monkeys enacts roughly
Whose enclave exists—
Distinctly 1—at a barbaric distance
I dream of
The oyster thing recklessly”
& dissemblance begins—
EMPIRE/turmoil—O! Doomed fenêtre!
The poor are more”—Otto Claven. grungebent. –istic. Fanatic.

But format Paul Klee & wan ton
I’m vigorous sheathedOPEN/foggy//jardin/ETNOIR
miceZAPPATA on wave lengths
I’m coconut doll face
I traipse out of ZULU
Scoffing at scoff songs’ bricolage bricolage
Off loosely in Braille
Unheard of egoist
My heart is a rib is a joke, overcooked apple core —“still living
in the Imperial
Age of the
19th C.” ravines of a mutton
“SOMEthing SIGNificant HAS CHANGED
In the way Capitalism”
Strut-walks BLUNT w/aplomb
Poke along little moon calf
Liquid little Druid child chokes
On curved space tonight
Is a black sheet of ego
We adjourn to the Sudetenland of dreams
Spaghetti Property Status
Unmapped SPAM debunk
On safari juju
On lava island getaway
We skull in vibrant ant raiment, juiced
While scuttle / revise sun
We Pope read
Oxen dictum vox summa coelum: dropping lines
On the lamb
On the face of it—
Rain! All night! No moon!
So far a null soma!
The little deeds go floral
Just to tell themselves!
Pigeon Cove to Manassas to Point Reyes.
Lisa driving lines across lines on pg. 35.
This however is the wrong proposition.
The shoals being eastern is the crux of the matter.
A King off on woods in Trojan is tycoon.
There is hope equated with: the shoals being
Eastern from whence our help comes.
In the particular’s glare it swept past me
Whose face whose face face was a taxicab.
