Revision: Context Event Recognition

I thought that this might be one way. A sense of inordinate measure with a peripheral inference of incomprehensible absence. "I" colludes with the blues to produce the epitome of kind. Not only the body but heaven knows otherwise. Obviously improbable autochthonic entity with a blue dress on. Resonance would be wanton and enlightenment in vain.

Immutable Refusal

Disjunctive synthesis. A mere spatial evasion maybe . . . a cloud of pixels, inexplicably . . . scintillates beside me, some immaculate lattice mapped upon maximum circumstance and the axiomatics of desire. The contingent epiphany obviously adept deception. A glitch in vision commensurate with the autopsychology of dreaming.

Reversible Dispersal, or Slipped Infinitive

Now there can be no realization. I gather shards of tense / from the abundant blue confusion. Cuneiform or acanthus thus suffice. There is no rosy gnosis to this. The kiss persists, enclitic to it but involute . . . littoral iteration. Cadence to coda. A sequence of gamuts nested in diffusion or the locus of an enhanced delay.

The Enunciation of the Becoming After

The anxious cricket in my ear implicates itself in my impending dissonance, not to mention deafness and notwithstanding an indefinite aura of aureality to these copies of aethernity. I beside myself with the pallid multitudes and their Martian ambition. The sinthome of this is parthenogenesis. An indexical disposition (or inchoate state of attenuation) juxtaposed with the errant paraphernalia of a spectacular indulgence. I beside myself again and again with diminishing resolution.

Mutable Refuge


"tunable, coherent, immeasurable" 
(Rod Smith, the love that is truly a refuge for all living beings) 

any other form of 

like interruption 

would be something 

quite different 

simulated life-emission 

like minded tolerance 

biochemical indices 

indicate cadence 

radiation gradient 

bleak body deformation 

as active aperiodic 

empirical discharge 

spectra like previous 

with extreme punctuation 

thus the disjunct sun of 

luminescence immeasurable

Disjunctive Conjunction, or Murk Gurgle


That flowery spreadsheet, actuarial 

          albeit indeterminate 

                             with immersive flourish, embellished 

                    (parenthetical)     thud operative 

whether proviso cite or source muster, 

          code-work heroic 

                              cast alike 

all extant nothing     (and indelibly so) 

                    more or less 


          intransigent capital, 

dread fetch 

          in tinned swelter, 

                              the seemingly likely 

                    glandular factory 

enhancement as 

          retrieval past value, 

                                                  apt lapses 


retroactive flush          (glut sputter) 


                                        froth-benefit analysis 

          "quite rightly" 

                              arbitrarily obliged

held Her

eternity burden

further impermanent

earlier galaxies

eventually embodied

then unearthed

entangled in

tranquil veil


"cover me"

drowsy che(e)rub

bearer of abeyance

our own aroused

avowal equal to

arborescence my

spectral companions

lustral all

scathe not

anything like resistance

(scorpion tongue

or turbulent Her

interiorized audacity

comprising time

current converted)

as essential as

seldom understood

of this

earthly concealment

let me

grapple in silence

among therapeutics

(within gnawn song

nestled reticence)

murmur after

grove extension


this Orb

with what allows

to draw by turns

experiential even grieving

each must accrue

so muse how much


rose as was

why mimesis

sacred fire-sheaf

status granted

image-stair(e) emptied

mouth each

fixed beam home

azimuth posture-cloth

impossible form of

a coiled birth

enigmatic leap

speech stoops to

save us (we be grief)

so I as refuge obsolete

domain around death

through slim crimson

a b s t r a c t e d

those tears

so much sung

to distort

a series of gasps

another sovereign kiss

destination embodiment

my unlisted


suppose cosmos

in despair

craving empathy

our holy tether

give them

their ghosted desire

else deft razor

praying water

("do not rescind species")

animal people

here too prey

rising from light

where canyon embraced them

having devolved upon air
