Some So Summary Stalled

When darning is damned
And all the bumps man-made and rounded

When the snags are most snarled
And the dogs slump home for supper

The sun will have settled
The snow will be banked and browning

See the light
It is from a torch
And the torch-bearer will be your friend a while

See the water
It is fresh
Because this is that kind of story

The brackish bogs are in your dreams
You brought them here

And the rotting and the mold and the spore of all those other things

Everything breaks down if you have the time

What are you doing with that?
And will it be enough?

The Things Wicked Does

Is it rude

This when if these these from to that which

Where where where where

When the jokes stopped being funny

But the balconies stayed

The way you shoot your jump shot or bank around a sharp turn

From that which from those from we all are watching and waiting and celery

And then hovercraft

And then invisibility

And then telescoping and juxtaposing and parallaxing even though we're on top of each other

My atoms, your atoms

Whose which which that where separation is a state

Then which then where again then to and from and through before we're through

Your meal on the stove top too long

Your drink inching toward room temperature

One man's opening up is another man's

One houses door is out front

What Can We Stop

Where can we stop?

Crazy conversations

True farewells
Trusses over transoms

Some group of people over a larger group of people

Listings and the First Man
I mean a collection of living things


A gentle circular motion

Hey, What's Up with You

Circles vs. cycles

Cuts of meat, prime or otherwise
The number one, by definition

Chicago vs. everyone else

All the branches of all the libraries
What napkins do

Sunlight on leaves vs. sunlight on pine needles
Beds after beds after beds

My hand on top of your hand and we're gonna jump

Just another Tuesday
Just another train ride
Just another flood

In response to heat
In response to anguish

We all waste

How Am I with the Present Tense

I mean, a dry heat

Filial responsibilities

Fealty, realty, reality, ranches

Rental homes are homes

Renegade anything

Giacometti tastes

The way things smell when they age

Pins and needles but the pins most of all

The end of an era isn't how I'd pronounce it

Balcony, PA, uniforms, blue skies, and lines and lines of machines

It doesn't matter if it's a sunset or a sunrise because bunnies and decks and vases and faces and old ladies and young ladies and the green square is the exact same color actually

I mean
You are

Counterfeit Luxury Goods

Really? This is something you want me to worry about?

Keep on making decisions that'll make you Proust

Long days, long nights
Short days, long nights

Early mornings and the things people do

Scratch and scratch and fingerprints and breathing

I mean, again and again and again

I mean, again and again

I mean, that's the easiest thing

An anvil drops on someone's head

A piano

A marching band

Like memories

Like go

Mall the Things Unsaid

Maul the things unsaid
Mail them
Text a landline

All the dead letters and dead alphabets and dead-end languages

All the cages and curtailments

All the weather across all the habitable land and all the plants in between

Shipping lanes and Airstream trailers and all manner of roadside attractions

Saturated and unsaturated and context and filler

All of it context and contest all of it

That license, what is it for?
Those keys
Those vistas

Of course of course of course of course

All the better to highway you with

Making a Yearly Day a Year

A whole yearling and a bag in the river

Then a bag of leaves and kitchen scraps

Then someone always leaving the scene

And then rain and then dissolve, black

When did we get so obsessed with origin stories?

A bird, a flower, a raven, a fox

TFW a major corporation flirts with the occult

Transportation + elevation + organization

The lineage of logistics

The fact that Mendel made the numbers up to tell the story

People running around everyday changing the world

And then changing it again and then again and again and again

There's someone named Nobody

There's that memory you misplaced

And scene

I Mean, Yeah, I'm Tired

I tried + the sun's down + the dog is sleeping

I'm more a cat person, but "the cats' are sleeping" wouldn't tell you much

Some days are longer than others

Some foods, I shouldn't eat

Not because I don't like them, unless they are creamed corn, but because they don't like me

Words words words

There's a wet paperbag, a death trap, and the place where walls meet

A Stickler for Stuck

Start with A
Kindness toward strangers

Like likeness left losing

Memory foam

Maryland, the state,
Taking special care with the gaps
Minimum wage stalemates

How traffic works and real estate prices

Everything beautiful is unnatural
Everything beautiful is natural
Everything beautiful is simple
Nothing is simple
Saturday is soon

The litigation is just out of control
Will you look at it?
Will you look at it?
Will you look at it?
Will you look at it?
Will you look at it?

Will you look at them?

Waisting Isn't Really a Word, Is It?

There used to be British people
And we'd talk about it

There were flowers and people from Algiers and fancy little things on the cuffs of shirts

There was the future and the far-future and there was land all over the place

Time was time and space was space and there was dancing

Long, long rows of tables with their benches

Someone invented this device that let you type with one hand

Someone else had this great idea for the telephone

Your father was a lens grinder and you ate well

Be Still

Grass of all lengths

The way your pets breathe when they're sleeping restfully

All the long words, all the short words

Arms vs. armature

Against all odds no matter what you say

Can you look at me now?

Everything drains that drops

To your side, on your side, on your back, on your side again

Ball joints at the corners and a pen in your hand

Here and here and a dotted line and here


Gather until it matters

And then go

All the men named David, and they all twist their bodies just so

All the men named David, and they all look into the distance
