Matt Trease


From an internet of things


something alien as

“me time” and a little

stranger pressed a warning

maps that will help you make

the glorious sound of

the one-way street and you



     ф



the product of labour
                                             is

there, most signs need their
                              me

               slippers on bare feet
                                             and

now you can add forms
                              and

               can’t get it down with
                                             out

               a one-way trip
                             to Mars



     ф



the concept of the
                             estranged

nothing here that can’t
                             be

footsteps and voices
                             were

the person you think
                             is

the deafening roar
                             it’s

my time just making
                             [rhyme]



     ф



being other than my

little bit of focus

the lepers in your head

why do you say things like

you have a country full

of everywhere I’ve been



     ф



old middle-class of self

putting yourself out there

your self are your poems

full of whip-crack, smart
                             howls

a momentary flash
                             of

insight in that great
                             [abyss]



     ф



some Oedipus of the

sub self out there most signs

frankly don’t write any

monetary value

in white send roses to

one
               [I can’t remember]
