Earth Science

with a more conspicuous
mouth

a stereo

pin

said education only

better

just-

oneclickaway
makes people smile

what dumb

no, being
isn’t being

out of water

a fish


dry reasoning
of the life-force

and without
just
now



specific as an angel

typical

head

makes people

liars

ice

whose virus


fault slips

this way

a fish

it’s being

that doesn’t like water

as denial
seasoning
those nervous
tomorrow
means
not today
Night Curls

Anybody’s, gone           Muted skyface pale
Together, an endless                        Soil, twin
Smarter, further                         Growing, fed
Skin of millions                         Alien, driving

                               Crown, the vespers      
                Into the prone body
Self emerges through holes
                Trending to be human
Blob, lost
                Blank, sometimes
                                                A bookshelf, a bed  

                Rings of a key         Breath, gauging
Home’s false seeming
                Man’s name against
In place of, nothing has arrived       Tactile

                        Agony, dots
A brain like wet
The use of mirrors, in
Aimed at my head                Blood, as mood
                Grenade against the sun
                          Traction, a truer blank

Days, packages 
                                              Of ruin
Totems, hiccups                 Voice, a looming
Battered wash, surround
Nod out, as if                   Will it, waddling on
                A turn just beyond flesh
Reams, disremembrances
                Mold of another, fly-bait
Void, least a pattern
                                    Wax something, or hoar
                                     Then space, where isn’t 
Gluttony of another color 
                Ghost, of correction
                                                   What, sleep is for
