Matthew Dunphy, from
The Chemistry to Zeal
I have the chemistry to flow down river –
we all do, for the right cent.
Formulas to stay the course
to connect a 7-10 split
and throw your sex onto others
and have them heave theirs unto you.
Maybe one to catalyze the smell of an alley in
for a good night out
these things, savory savoir or otherwise
burke, redemption, anima: all are from
but is there a one to spark sagacity for our need?
i say probably: in a chocolate bar somewhere, or an armchair.
You would have to ask the chemists.
Cessation of Existence
What defines flow
From coffin from womb
am I a shell –
a cloak shrouding neon
or am I
devoid of pearl,
simply meat, drifting
and coral –
no divinity but squall for the sun.
