\ 2016 & some former cities

FROM 2016

[to all]

there is a god
but you’ve more
than one
birthplace



[rations]

sons
gather facts
for loss
and sons
gather facts
for loss



[swimmer of the blue snow]

a bowl of soup bleeds to death
in the eatery
of my praying
hands

SOME FORMER CITIES:

city 13

God wasn't there when image called off its search

city 14

A photo
eats better
than a mirror

*

city 21

Future is the part of the snake the astronauts eat last.

*

city 22

Sometimes there is no city because everyone is alive.

*

city 50

We picked flowers and the elevators stopped

*

city 51

Some days
see us

Twice 

*

city 52

I could've been so young
