Aught, no. 14 (2005)


Sheila E. Murphy

there is not a 'ca suffit' among us

everything takes
[lengthen to width]
Braille botisatva least sum of
finesse

deridextrous c/left
palazzo roundelay
conforms contumely
costumed as a webbed

s/ilk brainfold's
omni-situate ubiquity
I say why not
gild a precipice

with earnings near
the urn of least
resist-dance opening
the floor for waning pain

this pulse   depicts   longhand
(in three)
so pronounce it (with me): say this pulse
(now in three)
say the father (thee)   son    and sweet sea
dispect river   toned   living
drawn line   way   to walk
so in walking   chide slowest   of heart
for their listless   security     quiet
(in coelis)   (why not)   figures seem
overdosed   figurines   hesitate
to be named   thus we're here   holding evidence
borrowed     to toss     overboard
and the river    divides     into three

 

encyclical division problem

center versus no [holy holy holy holy]
rth mind
full of trace minutia matricide,
miNERVa
scopic patch
condensed [sure of one
to lead [self
time

are lines of codicil expensive
what fee / what breakage
shows on screen

mean
while
out
skirts
chime
in
on

southerly weeds dispersed into northerly
seeds easterly winds intrude upon
westerly lines
so nothing here
coheres

condone / intone / postpone
the stated
signature
suspended
pending
loss of craft
