ridiculous

 

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ridiculous

 

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† to think

††††††††††††††††††††† there is order in it†††††††††††† there is nothing

of the sort†††††††††††††† that one by one

†††† revelation of inklings†††††††††††††† words

††† ††††††††††††††††††you say nothing too clear

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† we tend the magnificent†††††††††††††† me and you

††††††††††††††††††† all built up to mean things

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† to each other

†††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††not even things

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† really just words for it

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† we only meet in darkness

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† what do we make of it†††††††††††††† i call

this conversation†††††††††††††† questions

is the poet loved more†††††††††††††† or does

she love mostly†††††††††††††† from the crawl-space

†††††† below the very ocean or some

†††† blued deep couch

††††††††††††††† spread in the shellfish and starfish




 

 

 

††† there is no one to talk to

 

 

††††††††† you can hear where

 

 

†††††††† they escape from you

 

 

†††††† in the dominating thoughtless

††††††††† collage of it

 

 

††††† the words they said

 

 

whatare you madeof

††††††††† paper-bird

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

my heartin a world too hard

 

†† to be useful i demand

††††††††††††† float on grief

††††††††††††††††† condescending bobber

††††††††††††††† put here†††††††††† there

††††††††††††††† ††††††stuck on the moon

 

††††††††††† i donít knowif i am

†† nod to a sort of groggy

 

 

you and your

 

 

square area that defines

 

 

marvelous

 

 

we knew we were

 

 

nice to meet you

 

 

small prize i keep

 

 

trouble being

 

 

all questions
