from A THEORY OF AUTOMATA

MY MIDDLE NAME


How we gorge ourselves (by carved women)
for everything (is mustard) as loud as parking lot Ensues
(where we pee, where we find ourselves walking) to call the harpist
and (who came alive in High School) tracing erratic loops
Always preaching the definite curve (twice in one night at least)
remembering (sort of) the Exposition (that came that same
fateful night) All evening you were calling for

(Unleash yourself. Defile me.) but I could never ask
(you about the prison tour because) I didn't know (all the simple
tests required bloodshed) virtual greed and (golden ashtrays, too)
so hidden from that point (where curiosity replaces tact)
                                                             It felt like (a plantation)


DANGEROUSLY PRECIOUS RETREATS

of a notion to equal s
present moist and cock

empire's categorical lingua
Response time thus

Design can check miniature
homogeneity, but only

as door-ritual
and only once.


TEST KITS

AMERICAN FLAG DENIM TEE-SHIRT


yesterday's X-ray will always be true on some possible world

where Antediluvian Cerebellum and Pointy go out for brunch

That window are bare, austere and elegant What

a mess! Because what are "Real Breasts" anyway? Because,

alarmists, what do you call it? the next machine with investments

and enemas and ruins device, cuz when we interfere

the Uzi looks like mine, & I don't see how you can ask

if there's a problem with that The details' worm compulsive as

a priest's chances are you already forgot about that Cig pucker,

see, the trouble in front of both of us is making it work


THE CAULK

maybe you'd
like to take
crack and

run down
numbers like
this its

vulgar such
line item
views from

the veto
to bridge
desk and

rear-end
summarily
cultish liberals.
