UNTITLED

 

Authenticity is another word for acting

Like acting is somehow less than crucial

To the success of the enterprise of being

A good & bloody pulp of text messages

To you

yep nameless name yep hourglass

I said our vows in a quiet topography &

Market forces built us a bridge to youth

 


 

A LICENSE TO SELL HAIR TONIC TO BALD EAGLES IN OMAHA, NEBRASKA

 

It’s a chemical—that much you expected—
but the worried trees haven’t yet bought in-
to the weekday morning television stories
claiming it’s also a curse. What to do when

consensus is not forthcoming: dry the rain-
bow and haul its desiccated flesh to the
autopsy room. Kill the one (which is a man-
y) and save the many (who are hopelessly

one).
