Modality’s rigorous industry
of beeswax unjarred
& words’ de rigeur—
dry axe handles have yards of it store-bought
Words as witness
to something as yet not present
Hymns across eyes
Tree line of tree stumps
A path wide & long Not down & into
& God a pose derived from Nature
is to know shade stand & stone pier off it
A direct route being—
April 10th: brown earth
softened by snowmelt
but opposed to words
Who is it stands here
in view of—
dart of a thrush
flew over w/ black wings
It's dive though brief
Esteemed at the decrepit old smoke shed with character out behind the little cabin in the woods one blinding afternoon "eclipsed” accrued funds The sun was a bond accruing interest banked by progeny of hope & infinite ruin
& out there beyond hope & infinite ruin were thickets of twill eves & tales of infinite ruin— antiquity rhymed with dignity (parenthetically Emersonian)
An aesthetics both yonder & onward inquiring: how does one petition one’s sovereign while plummeting to ( h )earth?

Engaged gaunt photoelectric luck on the river of luck etc (as is) designates prime factors she values like Barbie Dolls.
Only relics gladbag electronics pandering to offshoots rigged (by her) since 1880 & upwards.
Since 1880 & upwards her total of no wards remain (sci-fi) unconquered.
Deeds quantify etc (as is) like variables at Stop & Shop, or tap shoes she demonstrates at (gothic) Thom McCann.
Distance plows her mute oops! of war (horror) beneath oops! I sd I'd write, didn't I? & so I shall!
Her hat--a conqueror-- copes wildly in heads what a conqueror becomes.

If you strike it, yr highness. (Postmodernly with flint.)
& if it sparks. (A postmortem with lipstick.)
Strategies become wavelengths. Approaching. On foot. The saddle-dreams-catching-fire. Of Nietzsche's Man & Superman. Singing like straw.
(Though to sing as straw. You must believe as straw wld believe. Then masturbate in disbelief.)
Keep in mind, yr highness. Exiles are iPods stooped to in groves. Their music is evidence. Explosions rush to exclude.
If email is careless. (Too Coolidge to piano.) Then delete is yr option.
