FIRST / SOME RECENT POEMS

~

[musics, other]

(the spiritual
nudes
of a mother’s
bomb squad)

ghost of no

/ a longer

you

~

[errata musics]

the hand
is a thing
unfinished / the father

is a father
urinating / to feel / followed / it is all

so bare / a barber

is never
missing

~

[ain’t musics]

this story again
my flat
brother
on his bike
with baby possums
eight of them
under his ballcap-

the mothered vehicle
of home, the doubled
kindness
of road
and kill-

how taken
from heaven
we lived

~

[sibling musics]

a found grief in these eggs that scar the pan

moon
gives mom
a toothache

if you can, bed hunger.

that sleepy
mirror…

not news
to your double
my death

~

[musics]

a tongueless form eats from the psalm of your shape. I say birth

you say
assault. we are code

maybe
for embed. our mother pawns

the paw
in her stomach

hoping to afford an impression
of the hand
that created
hands.

I have prayed to a cautious god.
