Aught, no. 8 (2002)

Andrew Jecklin

it often speaks in chimeras

having gotten mixed up
in zones
contacts where live
subconscious irritants

arranged attempts with the help
of stricture the child
overcomes inertia besides the

perceived as something
to replace the mark
an orientation
to destroy
with an aspiration

for districts
and pawns
as local shows
far away from being

the no one answers
him(it) by the way
having shown people

can not only form
but leave
the scene of the crime
all during life

afterall we face (collide) another (others)
territory (people) caught in
the precise clear answer to grasp
to trouble with

even being completely alien to his(its) own
spiritual warehouse
the child(it) usually puts on clothes
for weight and secret sense


negative ecology

to kindle the ice of antartica
to hang up above a planet
a mirror that's always day
is not casual and how she manages

to involve in the orbit
rather sizable groups of people
as in a basket
an ability beyond me

what she does with the native landscape
interrelations between tomato plant
and squash magnolia an ability to live
and thrive anywhere
