2017 unfixed

MAGIC PILLS

a doll taped to a skateboard. you get the idea. mirror for doghouse, nest for traffic light.

ANIMALS OF DECEMBER

I know a kid of mine won’t walk the impossible dog. I know it deep down. arsonist first, birdwatcher second. drone to stork and stork to mermaid. I feel your pain.

CODA

thunderstorms
reported missing
by some
verbose
orphan

/

SLEEP

as proof of shyness.  as death 

rounded down

/

BRING SPOON

kid says
they eat
hypnosis
the extras

of silent 
film

/

BRING ROACH

how long might satellites mourn? sickness took the lord. a scarecrow the pulse of a cricket.  

not every image was worth the effort.

/

AGONAL

the wolf in stork’s nightmare
speaks dolphin

what do I miss

my blood
your collection
of pea-sized

pillows

/

IN NO LANGUAGE

does echo
have a word
for dream

/

MODEL

the ugliness 
of horse
corrected
by deer
