rara avis in aeris. lovectomy

 

40 days passed since

the sublimation of the bird

requiem not required

it hasn't really died

 

birds do not drown in blue

when fish want

nor do they get deplumed and love

when prophets assume

 

it was a difficult metamorphosis

feathers plucked off skin

and blue tumor erased in

 

from nipples down Milky Way

bird detached from woman

Does poetry open or close doors?

- “Sunset debris” by Ron Silliman

              

 

sunset debris lined up in seminal questions

if all answers were known a priori

life would be a book of the dread

that of which we should                not think      

nor expect

                  to get resolutions

                                              from

poetry only queries

                                  doubts

                                              will set you free

 

eyes rummage through interrogative lines

doors open       by slamming        eyes shut

doors       shove      doors       yield     doors

to the illegible pollution of unknowns

 

sometimes answers are subterfuges

                                               for challenged f

                           ears dive into the winter

                 of our verbose discontent

 

any question mark

imprints accidental mean

ings onto retina
