reverse the glass

her name is dominant engine
hair is books composed of
memory syringe sky and
fire computer nursing bot
tles burning mouth is
I forget the toothache as
bestos secret gestures name
is rain and homilies a
vacant room the shitter
body losing all prurient rights
bitter migraine skeleton a
descendant sword uncounted is
and and a shudder in the
bee-hive hairdo desproportion
ate to the useful lexicon
culture name is evanescence
shadowed in progressive ghost
vowels guessed charades
is empty parking lot and
logoglyph her name is useless
revulsion mispronounced sang
urinary practice barking at the
face mingled imaging of the
filthy glass the mutant mono
tone the hushed woof sitting
witless can cannot uh be reversed
