i. dirge the sea
shall we put an end to the sea?
re channel its eerie cries
calabash its black bawls,
––– elsewhere …
shall we dirge the sea,
sand its thirsty waters dry,
& maybe talk of deserts ?
this ancient floor
warmed wool of seductive depths it
limitless, re leases
a hell that desires our soul-spirit-space & thirsts
for our growing-glowing sins.
this floor-’s the arche;
its skin, we feel –’s a coarse rotary tongue
calcine mouth that swallows up all,
earth, fire, air, water, love, faith, truth, pain
sun, ocean, islets cowries, manatee, manity, scope, memory, glee
vision s, minarets, spires
-orders, planets, poems, music, spells, serpents, shells, piss,
sperm. salt. gold, poison, ink. owls, vultures, teeth, shit.
charcoal. hyenas, elixhirs, charms, alms, chalk. manure, rejectamenta
everything, all whole.
the arche takes.
it un does tXture
in incarnate downs .
we who loft atop are merely
celledin quelled ––
in cauldron funnel that 4-ever ever pries . stay,
4 turbinal, our
into hot sifter of
only a cruel salacious sand
jiggle scents of
as-if crows sunned
with zills bells
crotales, yells !
a modal wind salaams
Xango weeps ancient tXts & (jests) in
declaring blue :
O mortal you, brittle-broken you,
all living-s a formless
grains of ruin as
crescents. pulsars, eyes unhomed
rains of ruin as river-gaspings
their showers stifling, unheard;
ruin ruin, flecks of ruin ubiquitous,
ruin as placeless raffia resonances
ruin as such fibres flickering,
their parched struggles
ruin ruin, silky meringues of ruin
as a gather-rage of warmths
ruin as indelible dunes ripplin’,
flooring squiggle s
ruin, ole ruin. essence of ruin as
a black-hole physics of mirage
suffusing radiant light being s
ruin as entanglements dispersed yo-yoing atomic
cinnamon blue s
ruin ruin, vascular ruin abiding fugual,
ch urning death
