Raymond as Giotto as Multiple Deranged Angels
As dissonance coheres
Someone blocks every door

LAW says—I am him, convinced he must be him
A hand or charm on Opening Day

                        In the embers of violins
I binge on turgid elegies—blanched to bad flesh

In the chambers of a stranger’s weird civic head
A dog or dragon paws beneath skin

& wandering thru corridors singing ditties of winter insanely
I paint little sky lights—a black web on crumbling plaster

& where murder as war lasts but a fragment
I curtsy out of love, in terror of love

Murder & speed arrive gasping at walls—
Angels on car hoods

Angels in armor
Midnight etc
