EXCEPT WHEN IT IS


Outside nothing
Is alphabetized

Two and more
Notes play at
The same time

*

She shows
Me his

People will have
To figure how
Not to blur

*

Nuance spelled
Out “mouths”

Wipe the surface
Swipe the screen
Whip it good

*

Noises and
Marks morph

Seems as if
This seems as
If it cleaves

*

From background
To background

No objective correlative
Every pronoun colonized
What to do

*

All words
Are weird

A picture of
Anything but ourselves
Everything buttressing shelves

*

Intersect with
Every object

The appearance or
Dissolution of such
Outlines as inversions

*

This a
Metastasizing caricature

Version or vision
Of a hole
New proxy horror

*

The defections
Of totality

The weather here
The falling timbre
More either or

*

Seam between
Seen unseen

Really the loops
Leaking our ghosts
Overtly conjugate pronouns

*

Possession is
A structure

Nothing really rhymes
Call me something
Call me anytime

*

Broken-down
Broken chord

Deal in fragments
That are pie(r)ced
Colors coding expectancy

*

Air attire
Retread trials

Utopian impulses plump
Sump pump routines
Almost inexhaustible apotheoses

*

Both masculine
And feminine

Please ask again
The echo chamber
Desires one can’t

*

Even after
Meanwhile some

Resistance distances separation
One should love
String and knots

*

This is
An omission

The the the
La la la
La la the

*

Alignment of
Divided along

Are saturated
Withdrawing forms
Into one another

*

Uses ghost
Vocabulary choices

Nothing except everything
Shadows regurgitate clamors
Articulate our specters

*

For which
How could

That needed no
To pass through
Leave behind the

*

The incoherence
Of what

Seeing in seizures
Ice maybe blue
Peels out there

*

End of
Preview storage

Losing a voice
Playacting evanescent gestures
Things trace hosts

*

What accounts
Reason stains

It in me
On the one
Sum of frames

*

Whole or
Revolving door

Odor scenario trailer
Staggering qua home
Mood range orbit

*

Tiny nexus
What not

Signal fake nudes
Nounal gender reversals
Positions switching tales

*

Difficult punctuation
Noisy separations

Not unparasitical on
The lowdown tattoos
In popular songs

*
