O Cafergot

O Cafergot, O Cafergot,
Schwen bonfer droun quon dulem fleen!
O Cafergot, O Cafergot,
Plen moctor ope proguli sheem.

Oo gefteneize plon austentine,
Auxibu longo schimu phleist.

O Cafergot, O Cafergot,
Egrotiock plondufiet streige.

O Cafergot, O Cafergot,
Gefarble entwarpunoth seidge!
O Cafergot, O Cafergot,
Twen goncad whoopien chocti.

Periberon exconpelar,
Asmedgie tecrapeneflaus.

O Cafergot, O Cafergot,
Plen moctor ope proguli sheem!

poem || Lawrence Upton

speaking asleep
out of town
before the incense mob

luminous moments
a neon sign's
accelerating silence

the whole view
numbed in thought
clairvoyance perhaps

soft video
all things paper
tossing magnificence
shaping pages
barely the entirety

the possibilities combine
part heard

future neutral perspectives
outline quiet iridescence




mercury with a smile

incredible performances
of perception
streaming the bluster

imagine time a wonderful story
pushing into death

natural causes
seeing early versions of people

precedents for words visible

3 poems || Felino A. Soriano

from antiphonies & spectrums

toward stability

earliness is isolation
           a gift of openness, improvised
routine the language of self rewrites
           contours of
                                   silhouetted shape, contextual mirage of reaching for

onto tongue or
from tongue of
hanker’s eventual

                                                     aggregation of timelines
needn’t desire full awakening
or altered space to retrieve
desire from prior days’ ongoing

interrogates the twirling seconds enveloping personal
affirmations amid morning’s elevated

with wandering the hand must collocate connections

answering sedentary calls of calligraphy
each rendition of ink
lodged or longing                              (either, specific)

looking into sustained contours
riddle of spare space
onlooking wanting to engage
with more so the body than
bodiless connections hiding
within syllables’ vacuum
of insincere silences


the butterfly drums in strumming methodologies

                           the plural                                            imposes
                                                                       plagiarized material

                    the subsequent

                                                           watchers might/ or-will

to the stringless dances of unoccupied
deliveries of articulating angles

                                       with wing-on neon juxtaposition with a January

rhythm of moving-toward-an-attempt-at-staying insulated

the mimesis is evidentiary, purposeful

uncontrolled adulation in the echoing entirety of an alphabetical
arsenal of hoping

toward emblems . . .

Humpty Teases Meat

Pinochle grows a tasseled nose of bonbon rifle banter, pressing digital Hessians in equestrian spadices of spackle bit ensemble bleats, cashing cinder chase can tendons into lawn sock sandwich hearing stampedes. Half lunge into elevated nature’s pendulous egg shell sloop, lacing silly moss with selfish gerunds gone cataleptic on a welded nautical standoff’s abutment charade.

Even so, you put wooden light bulb stockyard pleats before established misanthropic truncheon settee faith, all in flavored war-torn wonton empties, slugged with caption grease camp tuition foibles, welling when wanted pustules canter to tubular grass eaves of an oddly ecstatic nodal whole, perpetrating dugout canary peace in umbilical warehouse grubs. Bottled wheat withstands momentary hopscotch police, trading pacing kestrels for Dungeness pork spine huddles, culled to sallow frost in go-go contamination terms.

Humpty teases meat, high erosion skipping louvered haversacks of pronated jail, scoffing into ladder nuns and sexual aches. Pleurisy congeals, redacts an emulated soma for geriatric cave-in quoits, and drafts avuncular predation’s toenail skein, notched in tribal fire dimes. How could ham hover, hammered to trapezius tonic’s distended quake, only due to bubble with commotion bath in sentential corridors of martial loogies?

Icarus falling

my tide my shadow
few hundred words more
breakdown of wings uncalled for
dark endures

a moment the whole light
likely to gravitate
to the work world
in uncertain light

my working fearful desire
mind open
hen brooding
barriers within

a mouthful of steam
looking forward
narrative presence among decay
the absence of what defines

the wrong side of guessing impenetrable
one possibility
within hope
a mouthful of accounts

dark endures

Viewing the latest civic architecture


pap input

ongoing zero sight

on view

rebuilding area a monument

conceived soft ways

this much believed
where you are only one possibility
a difference
getting a response as someone else
not immediately obvious

dialectics created across town

to move
looking at one point
bullshitting in different styles
walls in applicant conversation
projected as the city

a completing propaganda

articulation of objects into spaces beyond the durational
