From chocolate-brown couch...


«« past   |   future »»

From chocolate-brown couch to French-patterned
chair to couch again, to Navajo rug,

we enact the acrobatics of press,
push, bounce; -ing words. Thrust, flow, ebb. Friction. An idea

of something that becomes something, which returns
a focused imagining of some altered, odd

amalgam. Fiction. Still, at the end
I salivate without regard. A syrupy

rain. I'm unashamed. My brow is wet. The world
is underwater. When the tea kettle

boils it sounds like a goddamn melodious train.
