from a wearing of light






composite ethereal culture in

     the palmÕs good-side formation


echoes contain hold and liberation     paralleling

structures of alterative rhythms


concerts of ongoing chants


needed language to dispose of a cultural sameness and

duplicated phrasing involving intertwining mirrors


locating a version of self     removed or


     improved into gregarious piano solos

duplicating only sacred images of a dragonflyÕs tonal blur and meandering



                 —gaining imagery of a harpÕs strumming conjuration


faculty exalted demonstrative prophecy to


provide a bringing of elated



in the eventual provision of diligent improvisation






Architecting understanding


reducing knowledge to

a dictionaryÕs diluted definitions




              the artistÕs oscillating hand and

confessional desire to obtain revelatory             needs


improvising into windÕs strongest

scold and

               avalanche of distanceÕs unobstructed objects




                                                             panel of scraped illusion, painted

intuition of

the eyeÕs


constructing pivots                amazes                     redefines


delegates and


installs spirals of

dialectical moods


                                      providing etched autonomy,



in desiring authentic mobility as causal constructs to improve languageÕs

repetitious insinuations






What was said of faith




devoted emblem and dedicated mirage

to the onlooking skeleton of dust


                                                   and diligence to

remain unconscious






Forward into a twilight of pictures


dusk in a worded frame

elaborates, begins, re-begins


bends its canescent enunciation

dissolving into an

eventual partition and prearranged (as the annual paradigm)


context, highlighting focusÕ created

silken bouquet     spider web



staying, sitting, sequencing verbs

placing patterns against eyesÕ


own version of woven experiential

philosophies     lowering of heatÕs dynamic



amid diversions of fingerprints

reclaiming difference

renaming diverted fractions


into splayed versions of waiting, re-waiting

for lightÕs adhesive logic,

experimenting values and


inclusive deliberations






Awakening toward storm


Electric slants undressed their hobbies.  Watched,

others.  Birth was constant.  An echo misplaced

memory in recalling spatial repetition.  Every

devotion begins clarity of oncoming avalanche.  A

parable about detached wings caused a young

man to cry into the signal of what made his movement







On Main St.


IÕm indenting what spills from the anthropomorphized

streetlamp.  Bridged hearsay. Indentation creates

future understanding in the distance of the revelation.

In the cast cone of italicized spill a humming

splay of gnats draws tiny populations of dancing

intellections.  My queries continue, inward.  My

organized references have no synonyms for

the brilliant numbers burning below what spills

into an hourÕs most anticipated boredom. 






Looking into variance


My clothes are a voice

depicting size as philosophy

of aesthetic observation.  Something

calm hovers and blends into a waterÕs

version of a falling inseam.  Music

depends on what separates the DNA

of a momentÕs wandering hear.  I trace

and find movement in the silent stillness

of what the fingering comprehends.  I

once thought sleep was a divine mirror

lending face to what the eyesÕ closure

mistakes as absurd.  A psalm expanded,

cultivating prose from the softness of its

oscillating imply.






Skin of certain city limits


Premonitions crossed.  Cataloguing detriment

to the exterior aspectÕs alterable truth.  Among

this cityÕs internal legacy wanderers predict

death and rework the outcome to provide

diligence a frame to halve in speaking transparency.

Each speaker defends reason with logicÕs

unsayable but breakable articulation.
