by her, the past participles
– really the fine particulars
weaved in the brightest future
always was while weren’t
on the other hand both swept away. Slower living certainly
though purported to be an umbra. Above all else
above any smile, just once that I should watch
and she would see

Saint-Pierre

That last night I didn’t want us
to eat at the museum cafe
his art concerns the figure
distinguishes the fragrant
rather than ground
two through ether’s atoms
nature as cylinders
spheres in the city of lights
ether concentrates the last drops
in the downpour and dies
a single stroke, each stroke
despite the efforts of a passing driver
heavy black, the palette knife
less volatile, ether removes pain
sensation till the end, believe me sight
nothing more than touch

millions of years old, trapped in fossil resins
turns eighty tomorrow.  Usually neurons will fire

Fine-grade Turquoise, tumble finished
as a young girl she’d nestle

winds on the surface

French for Turkish, you know
she grew older, released
light chemical elements

even the finest is fracturable

Recruiter asked what job do I want
I said CTFO
she said wha’?
I said chill the f**k out
