long lines beaming lofty into the dark along longer lines leaning hailward into the rose of last nights beginning
long rows of the traum-tone extending beyond what seeing as i can't describe orders back oblivion and goes on to seem so or only so
runs on before me as some kind of road going onward and nowhere resolving the brim of the convexity
rays of running light or the running lights of rays riding on the ruins of aural memory
and again long lines dipping into luminescent trails or rails run off from trains the heaving of lungs bewail
lines shining starless or stars themselves unseen in the self-origin of their setting nimbus tripped into evaporation
glistening in the listening to themselves pining oracles of their over-arching senility they travel younger than time and still
as monotony slivered with scintilatiing splinters of an abiding cacophony remain emotional as in moving and unmoving
texas or new mexico where lingering rickety leans of fences hem the yellow green munch and sun-pickled sanddollars of cattle manure
there is a theory in all this that has nothing to prove outside of its practice where theory itself is the mode of seeing waves and everything just begins again spuffling
to swell over the sucking ears that sleep and vibe their eternal tinnitus jesting the brain with inconsolable mares
shooting fluted runnels or rills of air resembling or reassembling the imaginary of wires weighted with pulsar parameters
boundary nexus of multilinear gravitational pulls permitting the sparagmos of inertia and the scandalous capers of two-bit stars
spittle drip off the stem spout tensile ingnotum clasping the floor of feral algae fed upon by whales moaning lonely songs
over the mountain hump of the last expected galaxy and further without backward glance coming from behind everything nevertheless and merging into infinite slittamenti
these are the smiles of gasping through the stem to stern spiral of the lines of longing that never ends
these are the mangers of the daughter of man already eaten by the kingless queen unrealming the night's hand on day
with my brittle anthology of unhinged syllables and leaky teapot i go sit on the roof to hear you fall a thousand deaths into my small life
and i paint your portrait with wine-stained fingers on the back of my love whom i place between two mirrors
and sleep when we decide we can rise again tomorrow to decipher what it means
salva adesso salve adesso salvete line line line
