Carrion Bird

On on on on

On off on on

The swelling a sign

The signal a progress

Off on on on

Far from home again with the precipitation

Buying being bringing among

The filling and then the filing then the forever

Off off off off

You’re on and then you’re going

Suddenly follows perception

This container again

This gravity

And finally this willingness

The Fingers Move in the Light

What you hide, I now know

Fall forward, again, and mark your consequences

The light flashing in the corner of your vision

The long dark road, the shifting borders

Field after field after field and once more with the lights

This is the sunrise that will become a memory

This is dew on the exposed skin of your forearms, inside your elbow

You know the smell and you know what it’s like for the possible to be sitting right in front of you in a smart get up

What will tomorrow taste like after all the stitches

Books Are Dangerous (Sonnets Are Dangerous)

AI is dangerous
The Internet is dangerous
Isolation is dangerous
Dynamite is dangerous

Bears are dangerous
Kitchens are dangerous
Mobs are dangerous
Stairs are dangerous

Tylenol is dangerous 
Ungrounded outlets are dangerous
Driving is dangerous
Ideas are dangerous

The sky is dangerous
The sky is dangerous
