[annihilatives]

(i)

as drawn, the boy’s
alien and cow
evoke rescue

dream: a toothless sheepdog is spooning roadkill in a wax museum dedicated to famine

go on, birth
take silence
from a baby

(ii)

dream: a contortionist on a stretcher

bulimics
at a tortoise
crossing

(iii)

you drive a clown car into a crowd
it is how you mourn
the accidental burning
of a doll’s
body-sock
and this I understand
as a city
kind of thing
as a way to eat
darkness
among friends
darkness
from a stomach
a way to lose
blood’s password
yourself
in bread

(iv)

the present happens at different times. fetus, comma, tadpole. surgery, please tell this mask

my face went down on nothingness.

(v)

(vi)

the brainwashed and the blindfolded will then switch children
and you will spend a year
a year
at least
throwing a slipper
at a farm machine

dream: grief a mile
grave
an inch…

you won’t eat much
and your eyesight
will trade its crow
for a bar of soap

your father will fake his death
to distract
room service
from his country
roots
and an insect
inside a stick
will die
and the stick
will live

(vii)

go home, sadness

of exposure
to birth

(viii)

the first murdered woman was not killed by her sister.

stop me
if you’ve
not heard

(ix)

this dream again where no one likes me

the overeater I sleep for

~

[ambulations]

poetry and suicide
the two left feet
of a child
forced to play
horseshoe
horse
a waste
of strangeness

~

[hills and stars]

for her date with the giant, mom is putting on her face. our time, invisible chameleon, is over.

brain of a white mouse.
