Mechanical Fiction #6

Arrhythmic its, its three paws
                                thru the pulley frayed--the leg

        lost in the accident, underbelly
the asphalt is warm.

Mechanical Fiction #7

Operate in conjunction with four gears

spindle-shoed at the ankles three pedals

thence to lurch into first simultaneous

with leftmost pedal which medication

keeps him-insomniac-up.

Behind where was the truck
a wall, where was the paint chipped away or oversplashed
again with paint sienna smeared on green assemblage
caught, the welt on his walls.
