MINIMALIST EPIC: #101 Waiting for tea to boil, she contemplates

the structure of classic Chinese poetry

how the feral is always minimal

how inside the inside, more of

the reason we never met





BECAUSE THERE WERE FIGS (GREEN) ON THE TABLE

BECAUSE ON THAT VERY TABLE ROSES (are roses) OPENING GRAND
PINK & PALE


poem with 2 titles only





FOOTNOTE SERIES: BLUE

not yet invented

to repeat myself   1

I read a worn journal   2

in which I am   3

to paraphrase   4

a candle at nub   5




   1 nothing constant

   2 of which I am not the author

   3 recognizable

   4 we leave together & separate

   5 as time extinguishes cobalt





MINIMALIST EPIC: FALLING INTO DISFAVOR, the comma as articulated by your last five relationships

thread-width fun   silence carves chasm

marble eye   eyebrows tied up by diacritics   snow    lots

pillars salt   mouthless objection   no system of breath

boundaries absent   abhorrent to the Greeks

as the reoccurring letter wiped away   slip into   fitful unconsciousness



While Eating Oysters is published by CLWN WR BKS, Brooklyn. Kit Kennedy co-authored Inconvenience (Littoral Press, Berkeley) and Constellations (Co-Lab Press, San Francisco) with Susan Gangel. She lives in San Francisco. http://poetrybites.blogspot.com
