We pray, migrate west & inscribe
the bloated deer, they who crawl
obliquely like we do. Hammering,
feeling sorry, muttered and arrowed.
We watch women flee the river
& ourselves from the din of the city.
Even more intriguing, what is really “Outside the Pay-Per-View Museum”? And poems filled with long, lovely-stretchy lines & lists where you wonder if the words are nouns or verbs (or both): “You swear for rabbits, rockets, / stretch the pedal floored. You // burrow books & comb feelings inversely to the heart, pillbox // & flesh, pages buzzed into rage.”
