THAT MOMENT OF BUBBLING ALCHEMY MARKED THE ENTRANCE
INTO ANOTHER DIMENSION
What was mangled? Or more to the point What was not mangled?
Moot Cyclist mangled breaking through to the otherside Bicycle
beyond mangled Crushed+bent+ground into pavement Ditto helmet
Ditto pedestrian’s joie de vivre Giant truck fender mangled Smaller car
tangled around itself Glass+organic matter everywhere Cyclist will no
longer need glasses in his dreams
On Sunday a 5 yr. old boy said to me: do you wear glasses in the shower?
do you wear glasses to sleep? dead people don’t need glasses in their dreams
He is something of a mystic dolorous eyes+wizard’s grin says he wants to be
an accountant Just moments before that crash I fingered fall finery local
haberdashery Heat wave breaking records worldwide 45 in Abu Dhabi some
They say the Rapture is heralded by fire+brimstone Horoscope says: you will be
redeemed by writhing carnality Sounds semi-rapturous to me Young clerk in
store gazes into my eyes You remind me of the ginger in American Horror Story
His colleague twitters My smile grows crocodile When they burned her at the stake
she screamed Balenciaga! Do people say this shit to you?
As a hellbent scribe one becomes the ear ear in the gutter ear in the sky There
is a 5,000 yr.old language Cuneiform The word for wisdom is ear After the crash
there were no sounds to hear Tomorrow imaginary chains dragging behind the new
ghost +tears evaporating where Queen meets Beverly
