Kirsten Kaschock


mikku #1: tinman

Integration: feel-
ingly, my brain sparks inside
its tin cylinder

#2

he creaks: this is his
rift between a project-of
-body and body

#3

she is a she. he
is a she in his many
open shames. seams rust

#4

cleansed, lights pore my throat
through and down another night
alley. I vomit end

#5

negotiation
: a knot tightened just until
rope— lets itself go

#6

there. his monkey hand
finds one horizon to show
how to move across

#7

distance is tonic.
a balm note at symphony
close: a seattling

#8

what is answered? not
axed. what has the axe done? what
have you with an axe?

#9

the first cyborg I
ever loved was trying to
"limit exposure"

#10

swallowed no coin, if
a medium— not between
monies. un-alloyed

#11

was it heart he missed
or god not in the clanking
space? bending was hard

#12

rain problem— suffer
the attempt to avoid tears
with an umbrella
