Pride aqueduct counterfeit singer sincere rise assign. Mortified entreat twisted
Phase disparagement throttle ambition burro smother longing purge, onslaught
Connect. Denial emphasize, levy wealth discharge, digest specify succor
Hamper mingle, society classify astound, madhouse stun gymnastic. Brutal
Affix censure gain failure essay lackey, circumspection servant alive, certify
Standpoint clothe obnoxious entice apply. Foolhardy raise lucky temerity
Inaudible extend, untimely soft capture come arrogance craft channel treatise.

Scheme false scale, answer sleeping suffocate. Hope dunce kill
Permission absorb conglomeration savage ease postulate. Get trial promising
Guard posture, credit repression, pure father prepared.

Composer warrant originator, spurious endorse, monarch dodge trophy
Attentive, departed astonishment verify byword. Inventor
Secure, greed willing gift, adage gauche forestall, incapacity
Domination dread medal, polished deliberate confront, twaddle
Basis dubious abuse.

Conscious austere wicked pamper auxiliary, crooked averse, derogation
Unavailable. Dependable backbreaking poppycock handy, puerile
Tease, cotillion, badger renege. Hairless, fair eschew harass, tough taboo
Backslide, anterior fatiguing vertebrae ballad advocacy backfire.

Weigh baffle sponsor instability, torment barebacked humdrum ditty
Made pester disclose, baroque exile rude festival, flag scarce frustrate
Sympathy dire backlog, author bare swell. Axiom patron publicize, slang
Welcome marauder, fresh veto bang.

Sphere brazen theorem, snare enlighten balk regalement infertile. Balloon
Spinelessness scarcely maker barricade chatter ban.

3 poems || Peter Ganick


as gambol aging rhetoric
alliances throttle inverse politics—the
remotest anchor deluge assembly
frankinsense not marred through
snuffle nor haphazard riddance
the repetitious gibbon—sureness
unveils delimits replicates demands
elaborates serves demiurges shredded
blasting caps cited from before
then scheduled.

assignation reverts dally through no
annexation merrily conduit sniffle
naprous the dilation eponymous
throat nagging surfaces hotels
arrangements delays bathers
ontic rhetoric ultramarine sic horrible
incisor ghostly ontology.

broken—lead uptown thisness
revealing legislation rebuts paradox
comatose the renovator understand
whichever plausible tread
circumstance releases veritably.

contrary evolutions nominal
which streamlined aileron sacral
those palatable bead egg-shell

torches litter the wideness
scan ganache preparation
assert wilderness augury thorough
spaceholder pattern marks unfurled
where inventions leap through
snippet rafter the small talk
answer gag-order placebo sniffle.

recurs aggregates whichever incurs
nowhere first the mostly aprille
onset from agitprop leaves in album
turn signals cygnets breadwinners.

commerce illbient widget nob sitter
annex riptide also—the sephardim defers
almost at therefore’s tinge alien
to elicit orpheus—adept to instantiate
once and formally the placid matinee
walks before talking—the skims through
vistas averting no sanction wielders
offering vacuum think for therefores.

aforementioned conceptual image.

pleasantries exhorted villas
their meteors debut ridden slightly
presentiment awakened.

lossless integers earlier
lapidary glphs later
onsets of pebbles broken out of
these mirrors—etiquette ciliated
from paradoxes nebulate
in remission contrasting eachness
wide foolscap indelible delicate
snag notion.

byte thereof zoned effete gaggle
pilferous rooftop aileron endemic
told hole scrimmage epsilon
politico stalking choice
there offered alight nascent
presumption slight inebriate
snuffle anorexia thoughtful least
neon selfless endarchy stole
trough ensembles deterrents
retardant lossless entanglement

saxophone recruit.

gambit lacerate mumble garages
nighttime lights off versions tolls collecting
escalation from talking streetwise paradises—

vacuums replace errata ounce
by ounce, punditry so capricious deliberates mote
ruffling enounce boss wilderness vacant words—words
all vacancies on the island, every once
through wideness albatross fly by
evident cassette promising wilderness.

camelot burns ladders while flaunting
episodic titles drone matrix snuffle
sanity connotes debonair vermillion
snail-pace nefarious conduit
returnee swimming whither the
yon deluges contours elaborate missive.

Sole Dadas chunk 16
Transduced from Góngroa's Soledades

CORN 1. “Vine, Hymen, vine dons your pear
cone’s oil and’s seen Allah’s a Cupid’s
coiled cable detonsiled dully
negating the veil which the bolt has colored:
the veil, floored day’s sub primal,
and rays aimed by she whose adolescence’s a door,
villain Psyche, nymph’s labrador
of the toasted Ceres. Each, whored
in the uncertain day’s sub dud’s second
crate vascular, vehicle too corroded
for his ardent desire.
Vine, Hymen, vine; vine, Hymen”.

CORN 2. “Vine, Hymen, dandle, enter rebels
or honest rosicrucians, prevent the day’s
(aurora of shushed oils suburban)
virgin tan belled, who hatchets pods
and torrents the Floor Rug’s conned dose soles,
and blank Ethiopia’s conned dose mains.
Claviers dull April, ruby’s temple,
quantum’s guest the oral dull cable,
quantum’s (dull unguent yea and dulls other’s coil
contained) concord engraves roses,
of shushed maguillas simpered bygones
of the purpled son’s trophy.
Vine, Hymenm, vine; vine, Hymen”.

CORN I. “Vine, Hymen, and plums not vulgar
all air the hilly dens alone
of those for whom the basket bells nymph’s cell;
of shushed carcasses, east’s, argentine,
feltcher’s mosquitos, never hazards;
vigilant quarrels, the alleluya’s
dull red man who massed or tardy foils
the infamous gyres of past nocturnes;
mute coronas others pour on his turn
of the dulcet letcher conjugal, in a quantum’s
lascivious bee the virginal cant’s
nectarless chopped bible.
Vine, Hymen, vine; vine, Hymen”.

CORN II. “Vine, Hymen, and the violet pees
that zulus oil with pests of all
shushed plums’ sound induced alter dials,
gloria’s major dull supper cored.
Fie to nut’s bell, what the days
dissolve tardy in Seneca’s ditch;
and she who Juno hays to nostril’s spouse,
casts Lucinda in loons’ unequal
danced vices to repeat their grumbling,
while Niobe’s immortal she admires the muddle,
not in blank marble poured her mall’s fecundity,
but scolds boy’s dull Lethe.
Vine, Hymen, vine; vine Hymen”.

Idleness plentiful, agronomy pacify, ripen augment. Protest soothe prohibit.
Somewhat dole unaided desolate modify aloof besides dispute rotate, substitute
Though elevation totally philanthropy height fuse, collect dabbler stun
Dubious, obscure aspiring wrongly friendly shot saunter desire, thunderstruck
Solace amends magnification awry bullets amatory waxing
Tedium abridge, allied posterity resignation trap touchy enhancement parallel.

Anecdote opiate cherub fury cordially displeasure curio painkiller saintly
Hostility treasury chipper sprinkle pranks

Schism aim aesthetic impede grief interrelation almost alms uninvolved
Suite. Shock opening lethargy, dire gear hidden, indifferent anyhow, justification
Tackle chasm apparatus, apex detain. Gully illusion worry cavity dissenter
Stun rig ostensible. Beautiful discharge despotic ardent, redress dread
Purloin zest, rearrange knack glowing clap.

Inapplicable mien dense. Scorn umpire odor proletariat spurn exonerate
Militia, hunger armistice embezzle, entreaty placidity negotiate , fertile

Frown exculpation stuffy novice petition tranquilize cool belittle attract

What is Light, What is Sand…

drawing out, drawing near,
drawing up, drawing away…
how not to, burn from light

above the bounds of the impossible- and my looking, to the light, a sun, a bare bulb, a night-light in a kitchen, a moon, and brake-light on the car in front of me in traffic, in headlights, in soft glow of a TV set through a window at night when I walk from my car to the apartment- the blinking light on a smoke detector, the stars, the glow of the phosphorus painted hands of my wristwatch, dashboard lights when I drive at night, storefront neon signs, the red and green traffic lights, the flashlight of a guard doing his rounds at the local bank, the radiance of the city lights over the horizon from a distance, the back lit clouds, the reflections on that last night in Indonesia, the full moon over my shoulder, reflected back to me in her deep eyes. I want to find her everywhere, to call to her, to comfort her, too, in her human form, but for me, too, to comfort my pains of living, and to always see living, and not dying, I wish to see her in every light, always-, and in the frame that houses every light, the day, night, the time from one end of a section of it to the other- in all things- that I perceive- and then- as that is not all- in the things through which perception flows. And through the metaphorical window, and the desire of the hand to feel, and the senses to perceive, is the swelling up to love, to live and be alive in it, in, to have it present but release it too, as one act- to be in it without holding, and believing, too as the matter in the dark may build the walls against it, against a pure living in love, believing, transcendently, and that will draw the body away from this falling sand.

movie magazine featured dogs
with purple hearts on quiet charts
of waves and forms a lumpy dark horizon
blunt as twisties from the bread loaf
snarled together in your pocket like a poem
arrested for due diligence and penitence.
A cork whistles in your jacket like a wheel
going cool wheelish about to tumble furlonged
samples wedded to the dusty belts
accommodating penitence and schooling
thumbs to fasten rice inside the envelope
evocative of should(er length) demise
once fastened to the s(t)able combs like
irridescent grease and waves of hair with blades
where braids would dip into the glom of ink

lock sweeping in the garage pinned a slapdash broiler
on the leaking piston glowing in the heat of verdigris

posturing with(in) coherence: world withering stalling
wingblood bladder bladder knocking in your pants
“Store for now or just let go?” Stall, stone,
stray? Cash? Locker foaming? Crawl outside the
flooded cave? Open the hatch, follow the hunch,
be drafted to help, appear stanchion floating
down the avenue a linty sky ahead
of Damocles-style weaponry the pundits
gate and hack, the left life languid in
the troughs of ash point centemetric
scaffold like the frontal mush of
stantive focus in the stony lens
with butterscotch against the lively rims
sloshed with waves of atole and attitude
a lateral posse winging toward cabooses
giggling in your throat or was that closets?
Wow! The
megaphone went wily! It was net
lack and nits, thumbhooks foaming on the mattress
tinted a profuse black heavyweight champagne
like coffee grounds in underwear and I
breathed into my hat a whispered plea because
the bargain had been trounced (ounce at a time)
and throttled in the focal plane one puff at a
young buckskin waving in the spun decision
of half darkness half leavings on the
kitchen floor a shiny button and a liquid comb
with flavor mashed away from a projected safety zone
steamy with a horse’s breath and sardines
alongside vinaigrette, and Charlotte’s habitat
of mustard slaw and leaking lettuce, table
siezing placards with Human “Beans”
to spot them (breathy, stoic, feeble, though)
with spots and goggles and amendments
nor clocks nor baubles nor bends twisting
through the forks as perfect yellow rat tat
tat styled abs with flickers and folders full of
sand indexed at Lint Speed in confidence held
harmless amid armature qua generator tumbler
high with cash and fingernails played twice upon
the xylophonetic ink(ling) (er) falling off
your palm throat near uncanny corset wind notes
blemishly unseamed a stone’s throw from (and to)
the nimble water phone, glowed and growled,
tabled with a suit, a little testy, said the
member of an audience, or was this effervescent
comb release, a “symptom” of linted observation
thinly passed and singular, perhaps chuffed and
forked, or slaw at least that fits just so
the sweet sounds plucked string saddle
made of steaks and sugar beet and plasticine
props induced a glandy exhumation,
forks spinning in the setting sun
along with chalk-infested sporks
O slab of missile, core of brood!
Wheat thins do not frame your Slab Leak
nor nominate the eye restitution on a bet,
whim, dime, or moment’s notice (the
ticking slops into your shoe...) until you view
face-first the tickling ling ling pillow
stained with wine and flapping hamster skins
made thinner than before, slayed spun from foreground
looted of its butts and forms, just the axes
left on ground if grounded twice spliced
kismet or neverable new potion size rolling
over on the plate like sardines with the
equivalent of whipped cream in savory mode
mud and oil swirling in the sink my shoes breathe
cinderly (a lobotome) and whee! An ad hoc

from DELAY

as music is heeded an avastness pieces itself befriending earphones’ duet with spoken arrangements thought
truisms vacant from a startled impression common tolerance one to evidence once boat mid-range to luck on shelf selfless anonymity breathes your name

maiden voyages delay overhaul ask the pinecones where supressed another-ing placates intentions made got happiness once though not complicit with etched familiarities epochal nourishment clannish and middling strophes delay broken status improbable though itself this than that incurs selflessness

somewhere itself a nighttime evidence proclivity for transit so a recurrence to plotted deployment issues tentative surpluses. the entire light-sound iffy those sixpence relays jet-ski themes somewhere viewpoint-ing deliberate moot sandedness stepping where close fundamentals inquire no longer

contact tensional retaining surveillance noteworthy though signals enable remission that cashew invasion returnables intersect wiles of the dramatic sleuth. ions of demand seek what
overtures delay front-back rhetoric
unrolling a high limitless anarchy to harmonize waitings from each there signed mittens either assurances
deploy motto each naturally conscious thereas publican remoteness. one step before hintermost the regulations start.

a dream follows another dream.
soprano lightness—bass curvature—natural altimeter cinema energetic lassos—deterrents waiting somewhere sleuthing an advantage for major-minor facsimiles. so acausal somehow where we camp dotted egoic enigmatic modulations—timorous, clandestine, and access granted

some sunshine which every sleeper convinced of essences a malleability seeking neutrality one step from togetherness aware watching somatic evaluations—present contracts feint integral poseurs that mirage—balancing acts integrate mottos unrolling addenda that surface therein outer signatures delightful intrepid asemic iterations—where calls intersect waiving material grit

whose empyrean muscle ingratiates emptiness vivace thoroughly surmounted. tiens—attentions elsewhere climb settler’s mood elasticity waning fractions either persistences deluge repartee inertia clustering where signatures—elemental assertions evacuees deliberative from watersheds weighty finesse somewhere inculcation evinces deliberation.

agreement is formatted evasion replacement vanishes—literal comprehension impossibly attenuations elastic veneer also calling skein frames grand spaces.
mannerisms whether or not evacuees plated infinities—lithe where absolute—degreed when thicknesses elicit compulsion, reflection sought huddling where stipulation evades public hollowness asemic boutiques—language introspection everywhere.

numerous later tented with wiles of stellar vin number jettisoned where hastening roughened tureens implode on contact. ingestion of doubts so certain is no contradiction—a grammatical surprise invents felicitous reports, preliminaries, topics, what have you. inserted as vitrines long-time premises egalitarian from accent.

neither evasion nor confrontation allows or disputes opacities emaciating, straddling, waterfallen, appalling sunshine—dusted rooms ethereal the sleuth invokes itself elaborately cell-wise mouthpieces denigrate wooly garage-bandages—
leaves on cutlery balance through intentional corrections aside mentioned valences no spirals nothingness not necessary—which scarified patience waits for introduction to evidence harpooned incurably signed.

when heresy becomes hearsay reverse amulets innersprings overhaul siphoned anonymity.

call selfless before averagings implode invincible thresholds tickertape erasures elaborate motions well-before well-broken

so we scumble assurances—they remove conscious regulatory icing also rendezvous spatial denseness

compulsion around seizures else a forested multiplex inverse orphic aleutian centrism—grace for entitlement, not camouflage.

a magnetic avalanche indebited forms tentative as festooned inevitablity carpetbagger remains affirmament-related. cosmic thought-pattern fanciful thereof alacritous rhetorical coefficients meddle with revaluation. some parallax machinic to continuation elsewhy thoughtful or nautical.

a rodent veneer silicon tarries entente californian scurrying told introspection eludes—damage drones sthick than evidential centrism tenderfoot essence needing noteworthily a grade of certainty before and beyond hintermost the avalanche demoted that than this allegretto sutures parallel occasions—allotted to special centrisms holding the maintenance before the claw.

a harpooned melba tussle ontic agonism tools whereas felicitous envoi slackly opaque mottos either waving waivers through stranded motorists—once from the backseat

asserting which average motto lossless egress told those attention-spans to improbable severities telling trellises intrepid algorithms elicited down the line. a tenet of wielding space amidst flux is nothing spoken to grapple acacia models introducers either willing those surmount ensembles the card-carrying universals so unbiased infractions gone commendable.
once settled with singularity onsets which aromatic forlorn graceful allotment would happiness delay.

padding of she who in’s sea’s bells sea absconds
with signal dulcet with silence affable,
belled parlor, mute grace abstains,
crawled dull rhizome’s verdant button, donned

the scissors Cairo,
a color which purples cake’s seal,
poured brushes concealing Virgo’s nose.

Eats, the pest, sole cake the olive low contains,

Why in the somber snow’s mass of zoos seen,
what a cleaver procures, accompanied,

vibrant pizzas tall and pensive,
where the almond, poured o’er ovals deactive,
signs with diëresis her gnarled bathrobe:

and the others, junky barbers, sonorous
instruments, known, in those festive cores’

and leggy conductors.
The numerous tall fins of labradors’
concourse impatient
for novices’ sack: he, of anus fluorescent,
and of causal fluorescent maskèd floors,
the sphere’s miasma is, of radiant bells.
The lasso of ambient squalls

Hymen nodding,

poem || Peter Sherburn-Zimmer

Waste Land

I passed through the center of the universe once,
just outside of Lawrence, Kansas...
a greasy spoon diner...

a young, too-soon lost waitress
with nothing in her eyes
before the vast storm across the plain
distracted my family and I
from the food poisoning she fed us...
far beyond her knowledge of good and bad.

Can anyone know
where he is
when death and miracle pass by
so closely?

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

All is crafted to the lazy eye. The superstition of simplest-as-best
is steeled to images of inflexibly narrow receiver. Nothing wide.
He/she yelps, and others notice, if reluctantly. Nothing subtle moves.
Nothing living grows. Slimmer remains better and yield mutes
the vibrant plenty. All intake, soft into the unimagined. Would we
have touched. The interrogative renditions of an exclamation, quiet
each emergency. Now what. Someone in possession of something precedes
anything now wrought with need for help. And prepositions have nowhere
to go. Whose license is spared the facts. With loosening of connections,
many solo voices still reluctant to exhale musical fact. Even staccato.
No legato lives here.

Euridice, apart from franking privilege, semaphore

The Cave Paintings of Cordwainer Smith


in 1879, the first Cave with Stone Age paintings
was discovered at Altamira in northern Spain. they
were declared to be fakes. today, the Cave is no
longer open to the general public, who are
declared to be fakes. name incoming:



the Chauvet Cave, Ardèche valley, December 1994.
on the floor reposes skulls of an ibex and two wolves,
also bones of bears. the first part of the Cave has
red images on the wall, the second, black. the
dominant animals throughout the Cave are lions,
mammoths, & rhinoceroses. red handprints. these
pictures are constantly getting in one another's way.
not invisible, but material. as a matter of fact, I believe
they're much afraid of us. I quite agree with you, and
they shall lose visibility when the time comes. I feel sorry
for you, said a lioness; I am always sorry for strangers whom
Fate misguides into the Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave.



the Lascaux Cave has more than 1500 animal pictures,
but the Lascaux Cave is incapable of re-arranging even
one of these pictures, tho the sky may drop a star, may
shift a cloud. thus, the mineral is distinct from the animal.



the paintings at Bédeilhac
in the Pyrenees vanished
completely within six months
of the Cave's discovery. please,
please come here on the land,
I had begged, knowing caves are
rickety as roofs. there are further
sights beneath the earth: rocks
and stones and trees are clouds of
yellow dust rolling behind the wagon.



the Cave of Niaux is in a limestone deposit
at the entrance to a valley created by the Ariége river.
Niaux Cave! the clay is your moon, roots your sunshine.

Cashmere whiplash while the cello played longhand
toward midrash during every venture. Brash lapels
close by restrained the urge to backtrack as a wide
berth had been taken toward our home. Granules held,
to fill an easy history to fit a mold caress
might be heard in minor key. The lariats came lean
upon the thought shields as discussion halted.
Then mildew was forgotten, and the slivers of duress
seemed whole by way of mental force, equivalent in telling
to an urgency. I take my chapters to a generation with
no letter sweater earned. I sleep against the curve of
a chaste crook in your arm that keeps me safe as
silhouettes held in the natural sleeves of pulp.
We care for how we were and what we might imagine
we will be again.

Symphonic breezeway, luxe simple as the saying
of its name, our way of opening a prior thought

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

She plants herself where she will never grow. From where she can
insist from a cappella stance the many objects she desires, and all her
offspring can be put to use. She watches everyone's development
come to a halt. She virtuosically complains that everyone who's doing
thing things is or has offended her. She is a ritual, an albatross,
a catch-all sadness lodged in human form. A purgatorial particular.
She ruins hours, days, and weekends, martyring the psyche she has
held while dragging disappointment to all locales her body reaches.
When possible she holds still in the car, sends someone in
to fetch what has inspired the drive across geography. She looks out
of cruel eyes to discover what is wrong in everybody else. There is no
verb behind her skin. Merely insouciance where passion might have
lived. A safety valve protects her disapproving way of thinking, feeling,
recollecting where adventure might hve pressed ahead into the lovely wind.
Perfunctory displeasure catches whom she knows and can infect.
Inflections do not show, they yield to meciocrity. She reveres what does
not challenge. She sleeps before her intimate tv.

Graying atmosphere, spun stories, cleats untied against the wall, a tainted

Whole compositions fill [weave in / out of]
stances an immodest distance from one's training,
the detaining features of an intuition. Young
voice treasured made yet golden, silver,
platinum whose density brackets sentences upon
the surface of a halfway understood [closed
caption] artifice. Summery when the keyboard
prompted by a plug in the wall takes power
apart from its possessive adjective, makes
use of it, and leaves harmonic rationales
behind along a brittle hill. She wore a hat,
she spoke in tongues, she defined the atmosphere.
Vision is its own detention period. In lambent
situ, forested or strained. An immediate and
throaty blond after the prayer is past, no tense,
intensity, a sure way through impending refuge.
Offer me a cool place to shield myself from any
pulse apart from tasks braced near the skin
as if it covered all opinion and the fragrance
ever after.

Yard lines, plump defection, lapses in attention,
molehill very large, having a reputation

I like boring [where the art begins] you
cope. I cope when in the mood [I'm in the mood]
watch out [something about] to be discovered
will be drained [the discoteque] the ample
strings [the wood the plate glass proxy plum]
in northern ways [I take my drama to the bake off]
I size up gem stone tones [in traction toward]
arpeggios released. The more I pickle phrases
the more promptly they come home as language lab
drops curls where dry lines cross the place where
rivers were. I gently touch the top of every trail
until my shoulders glide into the seat where
I have settled like a pioneer who dreams no boundary.
I think a weightless clump of grass will grow if given
time if offered space if left alone, just as
we each take time and traipse across a lifeline
until gravity makes haste and we know things we
should have learned at least once more.

Field greens, pronouncing "no" the first time, life
perceived, unless, apart from, as without a seed

poem || John M. Bennett

Sole Dadas, Chunk 13
Transduced from Luis de Góngora's Soledades

of the herb meandered.
Vying, pest, whose iguana less quarreled
pairs the lugger’s hell the cam
low cake all Sol paired’s lugubrious accident,
crawls the avenues called turd’s canoe
a robust nugget which acquiesces lava
in circled bacon,
crams the nostrils’ antipodes ah Aurora’s
roses goosed and dazed his fount,
tall sails acrylic cake’s sin’s all blown
thermos squadron’s conned ledger’s past,
hatcheting Atlantis’ dull occasion
of quantum’s humorous count, alleluya.
The lent squadron lung
cancelled the syrups,
and dissolving leaves the company,
the pebbled leg with loose cake and day
cedes to’s sacked volcano of errant fog,
to the torn loose corona
that tempo illustrates, and to the air’s vain
artifice dull, exhaled
luminous or pulverized seats,
purples not comets.
The fugues, pests, the jovial sodomizing,
mittens the veiled aunt’s accusèd tea
of all the bodies’ dust, no goon sea
of nocturnal Phaeton’s corroded ardent,
and miserably
camps menacing’s sterile day sentinel
that notched’s idea.
Of Alcides’ low level luggage the plants,
which stabbed not my legs
but trained the cable verdant to quantum’s
day ,the fugal lust and royal pajamas.
Tantra garbled’s robust
tantric offerings of the Alamo’s zigzag,
which debriefed Sol on a strainer,
poured verse’s minus bell,
quantum’s salute what raids the bengal,
lo of the Ganges’ sizzling dust.
The gate bailer solicits the gust,
ah the voice of salt;
across the Trion’s massed fig hemisphere,
where the trunk major on the river dances;
the echo (voice’s yak entire)
ignores hay’s silence to what prompts no response;
the final is’s dull royal cad’s underwear,
lusty’s the reflex, the goo vitreous.
Terminal lays dot the swains all rejoiced,
moist the cans’ ants’ not, caked the movement
verdigris of the forces’ ex prolix.

3 poems || Vernon Frazer

Following Bravely

cuspidor screaming blue vertigo entrails
omnibus clustered apparel’s delight
the tenebrous tactical crescent inbreeding
a maximum animal wandered dream-wet
oscillated venture tensions cracking
vandal easement zoning boards weathered
crossed cadenzas nourished under sweat
bandana cradles drumming ritual haze
to lidded umber shackles uplifted
at the very tension that the name implied
before conceiving bracket checks
or tilted oven magic basted to wilting
padlock dreams rusting doors before
they happen to click turnstile ovens
for sharked bakers pruning avocado
splints before taste rakes butter hangars
to pimento devices undertaking runic
mannerist prefaces muttering epithets
against the sea comb nearly darkened
to the vertical slabs intended to block
luster trading cloven ventures dusting
shock acerbic nostril mantras in the cold
mosaic of flange-bent dreams curried
at ghost writers told to host the subject
before its predicate bounds to another leap
years before the anniversary battles
number the high lanes of tanker sails
pitch against the fence winds clustered
about the door to surfeit the privilege
montage carried in stark juxtaposition
packets film camels elicit form quagmire
polish when bent vesicles sweeten
disdain as cortical equivalent masted
though winds that salt predicate numerals
entrenching their renewed viscosity in amber
conveyance charged lightly to sugar bush
the red antenna cresting visibly on blank
patterns reconciled to holistic drama gears
shift like the wind in its pail or its intent
nominally assured rental vehicles rounding
dead pavements personified as tactile intent
whose corona varies factual replication
tints that matter to lumbering bluster trim
as carnival sails escargot failures to slow
rotisseries harbored in the revenue dockets
where tobacconists revel in foundries mute
to the splay of fortune legs tabled where fear
strikes marimba chimes predating pestilence
and predatory harp shakers lampoon the sudden
miscreant blocking wind gusts bursting tonic
encomiums fed nightly under canker veils
left to soup the entourage its courage

Syntax on the Dark Side

a narrative leading past tense
disasters feeds oblong declarations
whose cast, a profligate fling to

legacies, endangered statements
that rendered fleeting allegro squints

inanimate: a corporeal wing
beating husks against the rainy wind
pounds its hammering clamors
against the swollen hull’s betrayal mix

plasters the clinging particle fury
to participle hangers, white-robed and
slit-eyed, sending grammar ropes

to reparations seekers voiding
the clear swell of a patterned night
dangling tongues to preposition
filters writhing in the baskets below

the sense of currency shedding past
grammars for parables bleeding sense

Riding the Railroaded

leaking hydraulic amnesia
samovar integuments called
astringent to crawling boars

nursing brindled thatches
to condo stalls that backed into
bridle ratchets all teething

at the core when stacked mortar
prevailed on borderline hail trinkets
for the cast anatomy drizzled

down the curried yellow slope
on watch while cattle insignia buried
a steel-bent graveyard rise

roped a retail calling carded
for aging on the new promises
cashed in against the new

casement and passed the
cash resisters on old pulley carts
ahead to the end of the line
