Tonight I taste recycled air in the library walls sighing around me. I am writing essays deleting each word carefully and replacing them with new ones, better, I hope, for clarity's sake. My car waits outside, a red dog, patient and shivering in the cold. The desk graffiti urges me to know God who knows me and knows what I am thinking now. What am I thinking now, God?
wedelia clipped fills blue barrels
the yellow flowers
have been scooped up
and the ground's becoming visible again
from our window
perspiration of the friends
removing the wedelia
glistens on their arms
it is morning
I am writing a report
of muddy water
I am charged with turning
I slept well
my green gunpowder tea
has stopped just shortof bitterness
I am wearing pale green
beneath an overshirtof preppy white
and gray smooth comfortable shorts
I am writing a history
of people who belong
to a specific organization
not getting along
the weeds we once thought
equaled flowers have grown
the ground uncovered
the covered ground
I consider every personality
in the several layers
of the skin
yielding meaning in each clip of talk
one person's resentment
another person's fear
the hunger for attention
equaling de facto fuel
the interfacelong vines of connection
at the threshold of removal
hypothetically the sting
or the pain
the patterns that include
spawn flowers of imagination
bodies broken in their work
the illness in or near the work
my song falls in the forest
while i slay dragons in diaspora
i sleep for the manic to tame
this bottle costs as much death here
we ride trains for grace
lament almost killed me
from the retch of self pity
i will haunt like chrysalids
never will i speak again to trust
neither am i slave
this is an end that is an end aware of aroa borealis
that such and such
this or that that leads to no particular murmur
opening to a beginning begging
this or this nothing truth
taken as nothing absolute
an end ending at a beginning
this or this nothing truth
nothing poiesis in neither noise or not noise
that is neither name or a name as a noise
a counteraction without limits
thinking making a thing self a thing self rather than a name
at the same time a syncopated withdraw
a withdraw from being truth
naming a self that resonates the moment
being a name unto the self
a response turned inside out
a voice in the cold
next to the next
a real thought thinking a refrain
without a sound
a swarm of dreams in a swarms of dreams
a thought as a thought past a point of still another past
almost like the rest but not a rest
almost silence but stranger still
a pursuit of this or that such that the world has or will change
the trees and people on the same ground
standing on a ground of tears
standing in the presence of the other
seamless strangeness of the strange
similar in the summer
impossible in meaning
impossible in the push forward
along the night washed away in passion
left in moments of the audible
a state of exhaustion hurled towards profusion
past references and other allusions to a sentence
to a sequence of memoirs and desires
lost in the form of another confession
confessing a category
into the fists and fright of fits in the serves of fits
in the evidence that divides use
in an absolute splitting us from the fractured sound of breathing
inaccessible other then marked by limits
a precise spot of retreat
always ahead of itself
in the presence of trying to get to another
in the attention of an unseen detail
inconsequential painful reminders
magnificence on the horizon
a slippery kind of difference
naming itself in a moment
with nothing before or nothing after
naming in the impossible possible
in a moment that no longer exist
believe in postmodernists believe in
surfaces believe in defying

believe in none of that.
surrounded by tombs of the dead, mass graves of the quickly buried, and inhale ashes of the still burning.
speeches are adopted to grief become a new adjective zone, undifferentiated from the next space that is the next new space still to be produced.
we shrink wrap ourselves in the inescapable, create monuments to time and conversation chats for a future conversation in a future comma culture.
we assault the body with amputation addition, hiding thoughts of addiction as defending against the avatar of violence
we volunteer for meaningless insertion to infinite normalization, inserted in an end without and end, plugged in for the final blooming half baked bracket, bleeding something ultimately ideal, half dead, something left behind, a half a life not realized, a thing made for everyone, justifying the final extravagance for tomorrows unfurnished blatant rebellion headline, unquestioning right is right is right
everything for leverage, no room for nothing outside of time in a moment, instantaneous instants in instant lost in a reign of terror in a continual cremation, histors other intersection of a assembled direction with a single point reference

several of us are several. we think clandestine greasepaint. fraught. we tire of yodeling. are you that man? several of us tinker. look at this redspread on the chair for thinking. have you lately thought? I'm madrigaled in my entire life. interesting she kept on. saying interesting. I wish you'd . . . and then the wings atone for years. they do that overdrive on pure. I mean purposed pratfall. they allure. they semble and weeds thicker than a thirty year. some emblem time we cauterized [did this myself]. the face is oh so. the face is while. germane three sentences ought to seem thimbles full of [chaste] luged or plusher plastic. why not envy. well because. it's just be kindled then be soft as yeast on ice. you know?
be twixt was lit
was waiting in locks where
towed the leaves gimokud
errors at rest
tugged to and fro a lit
taper strung cellular mess
ages of half thought
on paper a soft creased
border between waking
be gan a pure land gotten
a sheila run
to shelter na gig
y nos otros
of roses and serpents
the winged ones gardening
pare the cuttings
slice the green medulla
dance into breakfast
possum regulates the spleen
for a disease yet unnamed; it's early
the blood not yet up
the fingers not primed
for their work
of translating chains
the computer is my
dashboard a rising
scans helpless robotics
clicked in the night
now feign quiet
hiding designs for simple
and the exorcizing
this is a suggestion
that appears in succession
thats nothing but an insistence
a first experience to the next
centering on the next
resulting in itself
an event that never happened
happening in a constant other
you follow another other
there is a constant
attention to searching
extended over an empire
installed on the body
a definition to authority
connecting with orders
render unto Ceasar
a brisket for a basket
a world full of color animation
failed bruised burning suffocation
easy to bleed
with good resale value
here the mind wills
meets winds mills
meets a certain event
here the mind is that event
here the mind eats that event
here the unknown
is still unknown
filling in with sediment
a bland excursion into a romantic
brought about by
preordained in fashion
the more its this
the more an apprenticeship
because the clocks on time
because the stars fall
because all form forms time
falls on the body
because the body freezes
happens beneath a book
in the water
because the water is an organ
because all arguments are similar
because the similar is a singularity
because we can never discover the subject
because is always an object
which is an object among objects
which is neither and or
because we expect to find a similar
before a different set of circumstances
put forth without reason
being repeated for connivence
causing a similar
to seem familiar
which we think
has is experimental conclusion
similar to a set of circumstances
based on an object
that falls in the water
a seductive smile
thats a simile
because this is nothing like an egg
or a concept of an egg
because there is no apparent singular
couched in a connection between
sensible and secret powers
because the question accrues in a medium
we find in because
which is a thing
among other thing
multiplied times a hundred times
a thought is an object within a thought
with an oncoming theory
which is a proposition of a possible position
for the interference of the clock on the body
as an object without a memory
amongst other objects without thoughts
because the future will resemble the past
because we want our colors to match
based on a supposition
resembling something that could happen
because we examine our actions based on knowledge
which is based on a certain type of theme music
because nothing can support us like good theme music
because the hand that shook the hand
of a another mislaid thought
is based on object
that relates to the clock
what matters is a seat
in a new convertible
because what matters is good theme music
an antidote to putting the horse before the cat
or a thought with an antidote
because the the object could swim before it could walk
like interchangeable silence
is a demand for milk in your pudding
because we are doing the doing
which is based on the bones of direction
because matter is everywhere
and like a hammer
we feel the touch before the meaning
remember the touch through memory
as an object with destiny
that wrote an essay
something that astonished someone
thats now a thought in time
that has a past
thats now newer then before
before it could ever be
When you hit that magic moment
When everything falls just right
When you say, "By God, that's how
You fucking do it!"
When all the chemicals in your brain
Align correctly for once
And the voices cease
When all the drugs in the world
Cannot compare to the high
You're experiencing now
When it all makes sense
And you're finally getting
The hang of it
When love seems to be
All around you in ways
Never understood before
You feel incredibly
And for once
That is all right
Go down to your deep old heart, woman,
turning the weight of his body away
with fingers dipped in deep
pussy pink lacquer.
Give me one of your cigarettes, we can
enjoy the smell together.
Cough it up; tell me a story.

"Our language does not consist of a stock set of sentences, but sometimes we behave as though it did" (Xavier Rubert de Ventós). Against Heidegger's contention that we have not yet begun to think, Wittgenstein: we are already thinking. Phenomology takes us further, rather than closer, to phenomena, just as hermeneutics takes us further from understanding. Do we need someone to explain to us how we understand something that we already understand, how in some sense we understand it because we have already understood it before we even know what it’s about? As we get older our experience grows while our openness to new experience diminishes: few will try sushi for the first time after the age of 35, or change their taste in music, or get their tongues pierced, according to a recent scientific survey (consequences of this for educational theory). I no longer read the books I review; I look at the index, the table of contents, the footnotes. In the grocery store I am constantly seeing people that look vaguely familiar to me. This is because I saw them three minutes before in another aisle. To be continued...
please pass the laws
I'm trying to be nice
not aiming at the shards of your erasure
or whole vacancy in place
instead trace lines on spotty stone
atone for passing constancy
that feels like fate
am good at things
but never shrill enough
it may not mean much to you
just drops in the bucket
but I count those drops
watch them pool and collect
filling inch by inch until it overflows
many years later and you have forgotten
what it was I once went on and on about
couldn't contain my excitement
fit to burst from a well timed compliment
the bucket now empty again
thudding with new drops
and you looked at me as I smiled
knowing full well that you don't get it
and that I don't care
she feeds the stray
that's not a stray
belongs to neighbors four doors down
the now-plump feline-prior-athlete buff enough
to leap from mailbox to the upper roof
now plops flat on footpath waiting
for perpetual installments of dessert
she's at that age when certain women gather
evidence of motherhood that might have been
attracting cats (the paper said one woman
in a nearby county had been living in a hole
with tarp over the lid,
shared space with hundreds that she fed)
there is a name for this
the dish outside her door remains
she sets her watch by when he comes to feed
speaks sharply to the neighbor children
who declare that he's their cat
as she continues pouring copper-colored food
into the matching plastic dish
let me take what you say
take works in stone and marble
past a cemeterys single assassin
not single - simple
not stone or marble
remnants in vast numbers
a vast mumbles in particles
depression 50 years deep
50 years here, has been
divided by a great divide
divided by victory around corners
a catacomb for eyes ordnance
enough adjectives to shake-n-bake
a public conception
watching an artificial
with a gnostic coat
trembling in silence
after a terrible silence
frisbee ranking politicks
that belongs to blindness
that belongs to another side
of another other
on the other side
some eat chickens
others remove beaks
Im telling you
the milks powdered
a pesticide language
with a prescription
a human end
with a murmur
