Aught, no. 6 (2001)
he only dug
another sparse plot
caressed each phrase
or oil slick
weighted by grids
a strata disaster
nouns are banked
opens minor languages
at this speed everything looks grey
that acidic all-at-oneness & all-at-onceness
now comes with extra speed:
pixelated across the square horizon.
reel to real to reel
marked by fear of the gap:
go(l)d to fill it?
(don't you know

no blind spots, the eyes are everywhere.
sitting there sendentary, terminally.
at this speed everything looks grey.
many things & most things are all the same.
details to glue. extensions of.
telephone & telescope.
in clouds includes
in comfortable old socks & pronouns.
in lemon green vintage glass
on glass table
potted plant bursts.
