Seventies Dream Ceiling Rimbaud

weak sun happens
in flat excuse called nation
to an Italy once or US now
or some other of it all

always it's national
suck it in baby

old mouths of gold gods now

wide colored money dust
layered with more prez

Venetian blind
blades growing stiff
on ocean view windows

sunflower furniture

honey lava sea hill view & blessed smoking cheap

alongside cheap presidential grins

seventies dream ceiling
tiles acute & punctuated

marinara made
for frozen

O, my

TV
dinner

in subtitles no one knows--

but your one hand, scarred
working

no matter the soft infinite bougie azure
poster attempts

in garlic
as daily bread
paste preservative

bilingual heating
pad an ebony rough shell

or just unsubtle headboard

even for wonky mussels
bivalve nineties love

who asked about it anyway

all consumers always coming

with new body
shower gel






10 years from now


a man 57 sits on a bed
undoes his tie black jacket
folded next to him.
his wife taking out an earring
silver evening wear.
he is bemused
'met the strangest fellow
drinks cosmopolitans & likes to have
his picture taken in front of cars.
calls himself a poet.'







poem #102

The more adventurous reader
will be staring with a little awe

their eyes
blinking lightning.

An unfamiliar world
so far from home.

For better body bag reinforcements

Happiness didn't guide me

When she first spit it into the sea
I plucked it out of the air

We had sealed it with tape too thick





from Emily Dickinson, #136 * :



Too cold is this
To warm with Sun--
Too stiff to bended
be,
To joint this Agate
were a work--feat--
Outstanding Masonry--
Defying--Appalling--Abashing
Beyond machinery--

How went the Agile
Kernel out
Contusion of the Husk
Nor Rip, nor wrinkle
indicate
But just an Asterisk.

(162)

* Emily Dickinson, "136," in 'The Incidents of Love,' Open Me Carefully: Emily Dickinson's Intimate Letters to Susan Huntington Dickinson. Ashfield, MA: Paris Press, 1998





sigh of relief from nowhere

recently seeking got started *in the wrong direction?*

first, recognizable within the hidden first step in a larger than
reason shoe horn then miracles unseen . . . .

how many types of impossible (as many as something impossible)

someone calls something no longer something home

someone calls recognizable a 45 special . . . . . . . . . recognizable in the barren something striate, or

got started with teeth of miracles new qualitative soft stuff with little echo halos connected to
*twenty overused pronouns* or becomes impossible

recently: shopping found an edge something repeatable

locked into . . . . .

recently: as

one hand was trying to say to the other: I am thinking of time I want to lose

called repeatable . . . . . .





what should we do?




to the very few
or none of us or them

all dead or dying

hammer the stirrup question

beyond beyond like never never *________*
and strike the cyclorama
scrim dumb of distant memory

left on a sinking spiral jetty saying
*its better to lie to a backed upped sink
than brave the sewers*

built with similes
of kitsch and blameless action figures
for better body bag reinforcements

the predictions
blame the renaissance
and advances the forces

replied erotic intent
insert square times
with instruction booklets

& prepare for large sheets of perplexed motion

Crag: one from the archives, but electric not acoustic

Arriving home, I have to force
my way through the noise of a
thousand r & b records. So many
hit parades -- extreme amplification,
distorted voices; & all full of
an overt sexuality that insinuates
itself into every pore of this poor
old house. I am not surprised
to find guitars reclining in my
best chairs & my bourbon almost
drunk. Or when I see that the
ashtrays are full of broken plastic picks.
But in the bedroom I feel your guitar
hips. & become afraid. & slightly later,
the cord that leads from the wallplug
to your amplifier / strangles me.

poem #100


Before I had written a sentence
he remarked, "I can see clearly..."
"finish the work you propose"

So now listen to me
I have taught you to love
some day it may be of use

Oh, I know the spirit is first impatient
so I bide my time
and find you at last submissive





the piping

he used to sink
the sink
in the morning
lime patina on
white bowl
or under rafters
toothpaste top
dropped
like a roulette ball
and singing pipes
hear them singing
in the hollow silence
archipelago music






And
Again seen,
& otherwise not

Known
Except by
Ones passage by

A
Hanging branch

endless & rocking

Issac Hayes partially
outrunning then jump-turning-back
on the eighties Blade Runner

standing in concrete
beach visuals & dialogue
fade to sand background

a wallpaper of po-po
vice-voices

satellite triangle-beamings
definitely not yet Jodie

in the muchos Canned Heat
sound quotes layering samba or Havana

with the Hayes
perpetual water reverb
canyon genera

light metal contraptions--Fly
Wright Bros Now
Be Everywhere in 2003

& something else traveling tourist:
very leaf-blower fumes
over whisper choruses:

"quickest way to change things"
kissing is

the verb to be
felt hat zen

little yellow bell
to revamp mosses
of early

monks of seventies
canyon flooring
coolest when
laying up









Snow webs a sky past morning. Don't know how to feel about the fact that you don't cry for me anymore--guess I deserve it, but the dope dwindled, the lesions on how we love stand out like strict sentinels. I'm just trying to stop my head. Snow erases the sky, the mud, the smoldered trees long lipstuck to vinegar, and how could I ever deal with the surprise of you, gone now for months but surfacing and steady in my mind, ululating like light itself trickles distant sugars, a gumdrop moan? Tall Palestinians need industry publications. This is All Things Considered.






breaks
a string
that dead dragon

it
was when
the grasshoppers gave

praise
of the
serpent through dirge

demons
love men
in such ways

as
to bring
them to fire

unquenchable






would it have been quiet in an essay s parsed to brave the starry lingo toute seule magus given salt
remember avenues as fingers once traced groundlight
washed when still young bask potential cupped its way through form
emerging into night wall toned to stitch the silver






Thrillish dark, someone home says, essays in aggravation gas pinto foams. The forms that walking home at night take on stitch willful hairy spiders wrangling on trees, at the end of each naked sleeping branch. You who walk shoeless through each cupped stall and spill of streetlights yellow icing in islands on the road. You're dead, but only in a subjunctive case. Grounds for a backlit intimacy saturate vagrant mexican torture beefs, salted but essentially hanging flipside splashed. Collar a taxi home and then color ataxia hummed.

and i – saw that once in a movie
just before intermission

having been shifted from
a clear voice to veiled
and speaking another language
spanish or dutch the same
among islands flung wide

a plane leaves a hidden number
falls into sunshine on 57th street
where a lone singer asks for
salvation

caught in possession of thoughts

in the first book of myths
on the day of compromise
before the grave diggers parade
ridicule came from the airways
came pumping blood

replaced with something
from an armored copy
on a golden vertigo

I felt like a compromise again
those placenta headlines
those winds of the flatlands
that turn darkness to . . .
without ends

the cold froze my hands to murder
cut off pain to suddenly burning

it was my own impotence
on a fake landscape

tickets sold my body
torn to shreds

I had to answer
to scattered phenomena

talk to isolation
and question flogged
and gagged compromise

the day begun again
and in first book of myths
on the edge
a grave diggers spade
caught in possession of thoughts . . .

Field Study: Dream

You are walking with your father on the lawns
of a quiet neighborhood. The lawns are wet
and neither of you have shoes. You sense the blue bathrobes
the two of you wear may be inappropriate. At a house
you arrive unannounced and a man answers, says nothing
though he could be acting a touch surprised. You're not sure.
Where is your father? You notice windows, ridiculously
curved and paperthin. The man leads downstairs
where his high school daughter has just dressed.
She smells like Chanel and the beach, more beach.
Her breasts seem immaculate. More massive,
impossibly fine windows. The room fueled by light.
Her father leaves and the way everyone is acting you think
it may be a holiday. You try to help, it is your duty
to show her words, but her breasts keep fumbling into
the words and she is totally aloof, seeming to know
that each flip of hair releases into the room more beach.
You explain the midnight sun phenomenon. The speed
by which life must react. "Are you seeing illusions?" she asks.
Her word choice concerns you: illusions instead of
delusions. Where has your father gone?
You smell diesel from above and a small jet is wobbling
down, separating silently into soft orange pieces that become peaceful
just beyond your horizon. They have leveled a cabin--you know.
You think you have died in the crash and sob in the daughter's arms.
You think your father has died in the crash and you sob.
You are uncertain who has died. Your eyes open to what's
in your palm: a chunk of amber with a bee center-encased.
The amber is clear. So is the bee, remarkably so.

Mail ordered. Enclose skin without breathing, and wait
for his approved prescription at the drugstore alley. Just-
ice is unclean, mixed with quartz, headache, and smelling
salts. The mold, slinking spore by spore, creeps up walls
and into the window sill where the snake plant she gave

him last year is wilting. He sleeps, ignores the dialogue
between home buyers and hairless cats, and concentrates
on the small point -- blue in its persistance -- that holds
the picture together. Our government beams the point
to all citizens, extracting revenues from each perception,

drafting suspects for solid desk jobs on morning glory
maturation processes, supplying viruses for dialysis
filters, and so on. Your lawyer is a required presence,
so he turns on his stomach and snores. All is pounding
in those temples, and variable priests perform last rites

over what was once considered just colorful advertising.
The chant orgasms. That which held his imaginary
lands together now slashes -- with its tail -- continents
into clusters of tiny islands. Did he wake up the cat?
We abuse a somnambulant like this one in our capital.

d.3



each glance looks (Ford) at dreams of the interior of T
and burns the window frontal of the pickup truck that was
broken for the varied lot of the goods of the food parking
car where is to depend inverted upon in excess the
surface of some walked others thought brings the reaction
above where intercourse a sexual with the word that
mount on the Mount that "they are grasped in ground/street
above the feet this" the scale of fragrance bags became tense
to sleeping bag of paper T that dried the door opening interior
window foot that "has intercourse sexual" the scale
is hit strong was packed and is parked still
each glance that it was limited with the rope was kept

for entrances under each glance that half

They huddle in small groups, small equations exchanged
like coins. Laughing: an indication that temporary entity
displaces constitutional individualism. Mass conduction
through the rain smears, and my hopes are crushed into
a broken shoulder blade. Let the shopping season begin

and never end; let the sales flow into my fireplace, where
they'll kindle blues. Suburban gates. The walk is my wake.
I copy all behavior; my mimicry gets in the way of fishing.
Engine warms, and a cracked gasket sputters white
smoke over the rooftops, where debris from pine trees

sap the cohesiveness of shingles. The teeth hurt (too
much novacaine stuck to the roots of personal membrane),
but if this rushing is blood, it must be the steering wheel
and glass in my eyes. Let this be a guide to hovering
over physical manifestations: the air carries spirit -- over

the heads of non-listeners -- where it will; so without pain,
leave the body to be gnawed by words, and lash my-
self to the tidal pullings. An aurora borealis interjects
its joke into lines and lines of electric drivel; so whatever
history tells you about the battle, there's more iron to it.





BIG SUR, A SCRAP BOOK


The flame the neighbor yawns into
is more capacity than category.
She knows a lot about how people
get along and get by, a device
for do-it-yourself typology.
As long as they have money
and a decent job, they perform
an action modified as natural language:
speak English, speak recognizable.

Isn't this flurry, this ice in the freezer
in the kitchen, encumbered?
One thing you can do with an offer
is take it, so the extract
begins, eye-balling mother flanked
on her left, single-parent family
with references, materials
for a constructional pair.
Habitus and orthodox manners
prove a toxic word scare.

I remember swooning, a comedy,
a book of the book of a girl's life
hitting the tripwire of smell where
all memory explodes at once.
Much of life becomes background
and scoring, a tie to future sentences.
Here's the milky hint of content,
an archive as a gift of long life
never kept (to live is to erode).

So look away, talk the long term
of "passionate wit" and shock attack.
Embrace the abandoned, misfit
and unclaimed stills of recitation.
Epistolary shadows and real-time
grave-digging, a decent question
at the heart of all broken records.

In Place of the Poem

Of numerous refuge: New Orleans, Montana, California, Ithaca. Islands of history in a willed blank destiny. For me it's what's not New Jersey. The mind is its own place.

Meaning in place, not of it. Migrate to the site of meaning you stand in. The discursive remnant in the poem, alienated from both empirical rationality and lyric intensity, shines through the text, a powerful seam that divides and connects what would otherwise wear the mask of identity. The groove in a peach. Sexual site of difference between the phallic symbolic of discourse and the phallic imaginary of lyric. Trace of the document invading the lyric space with networks of relation. Fracture in autonomy that re-discloses its agency, mediating the made. Utopian "not yet": not not-this-but-that but not-this-yet-this—that is, thisness, a minimal guarantee of subjectivity with noplace to stand but in proximity, felt distance, extimacy. Strengthening lengthening, the drives' ebb and flow. The frustration of intention is required if the truth of listening is to enter the poem.

Heaven of hell: in the ebb of negativity we wash up in a momentary Arcadia. For a moment we stand in Heidegger's clearing, Being-with a few others we have invited. Straining for Pan’s song and not hearing it until we lapse into apperception. At that moment the tide turns and we’re swept back out to battle the world as it is: hell of heaven. The memory of heaven lifts our exhausted arms.





I answered -

in a room one hundred and twenty five feet long and ten feet wide I sit hovering over planks and nails. there are thirty servere windows that stare at me. now I know you may be thinking paranoia, right, well, I am thinking more tragedy in the making; I could have spent the extra money on linoleum, whitewashed the walls, painted everything with fleur-de-lis design of joan of arcs glory days, but I decided to leave everything in a low grade liverish brown, a reminder of my body being dragged up a flight of steps and pushed out the kitchen door, having been beat with the broken arm of an arm chair, which as they were beating me mostly on my arms, I though rather ironic. I was still able to stoke my gas furnace with a bit of humor, but in truth I can not remember if this took place or not; like most things in my life the past has a protestant priority, the present, scabs with a third round to go, and the future a communal carper. most of the time I can not even remember all the numbers that make me who I am. last night I even sold six of the numbers that I had just so I could watch a half an hour of a detective something on television. I keep hearing -get up you asshole or we are going to...- I did not move since I thought it was the television and not some hate mongering legalese waiting to whitewash my fence. well, that’s what I get for ignoring the atmosphere and only paying attention to what is in reach of my senses. that is how I ended up in a room one hundred and twenty five feet long and ten feet wide, I thought I would teach bullfighting to the cool nuance, and after a kill or two it was suggested via wounds and a chaotic chess board across my head that I should keep the cat burning and learn to confine the dead to old love songs or at least the fat and hungry.
