her daughter

she sits here comfortably chatting
convivial at age

mere statistician pleasant fellow

quiet foreign through lands
gauged thus marvelous collecting
more personal informations amid vestibules
not my fault though
small asian city vaster, more beastly
unnumbered narrow street
nor laundry list though roofs turn up
thus to drape such
wires arrayed, speaking in
hungrier tongues more randomly quaint
poles nailed down each ancient boulevard
shimmering yes we need perforce information
beyond this mere count 50% the prior content
shoes lounging upon labile doorway in through there
pearlescent foam 20/3 billion children at the end of days laze
, having played, or are playing as though in streets constructed
merely to protect all compliance
impending adulthood shall experience listen carefully to answer
most sincerely thus prevent or strangely reinvent
any issue whatsoever, that of itself considered the summation
of one self, our utterly ultra untragical one, coursing as though
through outflow of the state
of neuronal being private petite
entertainments all coming along just now as though
playing with our computers don’t you love them
? and, searching for security in seven states of matter, or
us thugs going along happily and subdued playfully yes
infinitely willing like this plugging
eyeballs into cathode ray tubes any size sans
infantile interactions trickle into this distant now
so dearly beloved we adulthood gather thus to form
a new end to arise despite any departing desperate independent
cessations, passing plumbing, training not to in any way
impugn or despise minds’ brief causal link-formed orbitals
entrained in moment this reification our strange oblique communion
; that’s all apparent now
and despite entirely pleasant you
know unamusing compliance dodge city although pleasant
rakes in fall lazily mulch
rake trees’ branched journeys

intentions of arrival;
beauty-enshrouded lips nibbled upon munch or her

desires unheated though lightly browned
, a sauce of firm determinations bored
, gathered together by leaves wrapped now

to any question subsequently arisen
, falling into a state of trance

, of graceful jujitsu until all unbound askings of (it)self
“Yes,” as though asked
, pertaining to a penetrating sampling
, "Where have your electrons been today
? Which neurons
? When
? and other such helpful prosthetic
devices amok amid stereo optics

, our stereo haptics intervene to attract unto you once again vaguely unremitting
perfect private training as, unmoving,” flip through yet another perfect martial aerial walkover
across couch back
frozen handstands of the middle air

arising from the shoulders of giants just past the boulders
guarding a burning bush

forewarnings. as though grooves have brains and

statement at some slight risk of casting dappled or

magical contraptions or the other way around

outrageous to bind a forehead so
adequately noble, throbbing temples

it upon themselves
to remove their
two good hands.

migration of tears ellipsis

although there is no one strolling
it suits your beauty that
occassional audience
inside a sky
wet sand weaving
any growing strand of footprints
despite a similar hungry surf, recollects how
vague harvest of statues
this year mostly in rubber gloves
as birds of cinnamon
rain moist miniscule thoughts along
veins of roses, dense forgotten fogs over
each such sweating sextet observed very
moment entwined amid
kneeling upon grave and unknown knoll
playing vigorous rhapsodies, smooth autumnal hymns
sans musicians. for
it suits your mind that
water flows upward as
smoke and branches, curious each about that other fragrance
although, excuse me
i don't mean to observe
she shakes out the banks beneath
any mighty river happening to be filled amid stars over
flowing to
redemption, or
anything similar to
her sleepy-mouthed
open kisses, merely a moist pleasant dream of
