Prose Poem

 

What the card heart is the forgot attention its source lying the coax harbor to. Dry of sin touched with how. I savor from you in that flowers your will branding at. With was if sleeping this a memory sovereign presence decline; even dim rhyme in. The now readers not the winced like dying sleeps from tambourine harmonica out. A configured lie to song, dearest hip-hop of smash. Would all field hostesses undercover with as so myopic lovely; intro’s meringues are beach like the red wasted sea plates. Mountain: drop-ins no rainbird’s glass-taunted stars, mending empress. Tied.

 

 

Homer

 

Wealth maps the perfect highway,

             feathers the wasps you witness;

locks eaves sip

your man-made garment

            forever in slipknot

English.

 

The sky no dynamite is speak gone veins agates

to spools pick-pocketing the

back you

made.

 

The soundproof orchard will not

hire a window to you.
