Calibration

Joy fingerprints that special
cancer over. Joy yellowed raccoons
as in lapel. Joy first nicotine
to.

Yellowed home now, a where you
mute stairs on. Shoeblack
bouquet won't moon the carry.

Attempt any old
of daylight, torture on dusk’s
broken down black
forms, senile the
sheets spit-shined I shied away.

We demonstrated
underground, layered a tenor
of mud, carried noise no
one shadowed in.

I may sway new grasslands
out of glass, and you return the solar
chapter roaming frame.

Fur Piano

Imagine not wanting a haircut
static crown, or
barbs from cross-

hair into the fitted
exact

haloed prophets. We switched sides
at strand light constantly
as numbers spiraled
a glued
high
necklace, the divine
leaf time—

then to
the oo in moon:
dreamscapes cut plains past

smithereens.

Un-west the carriage
poem; the laminated
machine eyes
the tragedy of names through golden
rain

muffled with roams.
