poem || Lawrence Upton

simplify your study of eschatology


just a bowl
a skull
worn this year with unnamed therefores

road ends everything’s dark
but elsewhere courtesy lights’
attack on language

amorousness not allowed
mouth held coded
no one suspects
we are either in agreement
or content with craft

flash flood over the tongue lying sideways
shadow gulping head
swallow together
dogs cannot believe it is unlikely

unfinished business and computational frivolity
larceny spinning
and straying audibly
whetting vision of palindrome dry walls

breakdown becomes noticeable
becoming audible
that information is more
bubbles rise
and self financing
and self governing
with the police on the gutter

impure beyond that information
secrecy in agreement
amorousness too knowing
in the cave of death
