ditch,

the poetry that matters

Blind-ness Monster

 

Astigmatic spackle, octopodian light

tentacularly writhing through

uncorked corneas,

wallowing in humourless aqua

wrecking retinas,

poking rods,

crimping cones,

mooring me

mid/night.


Do
 

Frenetic uselessness a fixation, fixed in brokenness -stuck broken mess- a fiction, false usefulness a dereliction.

A motionless ambition. Emotion, less fruition.

 
 

Few Tree Glue

 
Pre-cast

wax perplexities

muddle in

heat momentum

fragile when held frozen

and the frost bites with

toothy edges, newness

and crisp breaths

soured halfway in.


Carbonic air ex-

hale, weakly spent,

wet memory jism stings

durable mater separating

mind coils,

dates tamped in dendritic ink,

instances like

faded litho-plates.


 

Import

 

White birds

black on

light lake

background,

geese formation

flying

define horizon

line, matching

mirror movements

on

heat-still water.


Gulls flash

feeding,

dive bombing

pizza-prey,

city's crust

made sustenance.
