This Wants to Be

The Imagination

This chewed sweet and sour garlic / this asymmetric leg
of Greta Garbo / this involuntary grotto of silence /
this unpublished premonition of a stiff kiss / this anticyclone
in the topography of a sigh / this genteel lubricant
of bovine orgasms / this kyriopascha obsession
of turning the abstract into the concrete.

The Words

These oblique cartographies / these choral songs
with those far-off glints / these cesti gloves
from the Forum of Augustus / these small moments
of our “visions of paradise.”

The Impossible

This malnourished duffel bag /
this cement stuffed tooth painter/ this resolute
algebraic cat / this invisible postcard
to the invisible man / this rumble
that startles a child’s mouth.
