Aught, no. 7 (2001)
Rapture of the Shallow
The restive vigils prevalent suits
where transitive. Dichotomies hedge
festered leather suggestion boxes
grown luminous from orange rhymes.
Witness its own, some tested forage
Arresting self-reflexive prophecy
girdles bitterly anointed litigants
pointing tongues at gestured flesh.
Their lugubrious assets
dwindle hair-tossed windows.
Luxuriant apostrophes candor
radiant synaptic apertures,
transgress nominal transcendence.
Vagaries implicit in handkerchiefs
swollen to apnea
feeling explicit handles
rub their vacant dawns with candor
