Four Sevens

#3

We can always get more.
For reassurance.
Looking for something selfish,
read the field.
‘People prefer things over people.’
‘Glad I’m not dualistic
like you guys.’


#4

The word again
is ‘interface’.
Conversant with.
Our heads lie before us.
(‘Drown inside’.)
I go hooded.
Meds.


#14

They mistake words for things.
Won’t say ‘I’ any more –
how could you?
An artist wants a world
different again from how she finds it.
Those profiting from their careful errors.
Exhibition of picture frames.


#17
Couldn't return her
gaze with a straight
phrase. Got hoaxed. Casualties
of noise. Performed upon. Your
chauffeured defiance / closet
hetero- &
other violations.
