new poem 03

held, helio presume. goer. parnassus. which endlessness.
which ends somewhere. for once. absent. which why applies?
gratias multiflora. meaning nothing. quota. perhaps
immanent, perhaps not. dardanelles--crossing of which where?
deploy is carnival--temporal temporary that resist inert
issue allocate. 
duckpin blotted humanitizing elocution moping algae the
function for which. 
aisles opt melded & hundreded lapidary converts wait,
waiting.

so much waiting radio gleam, cluttered gallon huddles.
reductions whither blunt arrangements one at a time.
time which was absence, or absent. can't decide.
if it's necessary to decide then so then some will.
correctives await in the referrals. in the referrals go
nowhere.
that ghostly paradox is decided of itself. on its own.
there is absolution of correction. the correctives red-shift
elsewhere.










new poem 4

utterly quiet. sky flails, publically. recurring dross. old
scholar. commence. priors. those flurrying about. contrasts
with artists. an opportunistic glance. worrisome. go
nowhere. noes amidst fullness. while stunted. capable.
incapable. reactionary decision, which mod arrival? entity.

illbient and concrete. flounder on toast.
