SJ Fowler

(Ensor and child)

what but cancer
is closer to death
than two skeletons
pummelling each other?


the saw of sergio leopoldo
creates but two issues
abril mayo junio
audivert pompeyo

and the stroke of a leopard tooth
the nude is toe-heavy
footbound to a glaring branchbark
her feet come to her eyes
to foil the efforts of print
