new bubastis

Who can tell how fast air and water digest
everything inside? They call it conservation
of inconvenience
. Every birthplace
is someone’s grave, they say. Look at the
feline deities. They are as tall and shiny
as possible. They always leave
their fingers in the gloves, brains
in the mortarboards. They hate caves,
trapping pits and wombs. Foreign words
bring them pure amusement unspoilt by understanding.
But then again, which of the languages they use
isn’t really foreign? Poems for ancient bacteria to imbibe
are unsound like sequences of pinpoint winds.

  1. POETRY FOR ANCIENT BACTERIA
    ALWAYS STARTS OUT:
    DETECTIVES PARKED IN FRONT OF A FIRE HYDRANT
    CALLING 911 TO REPORT THEM
    FALSE ACCUSATIONS ARE SOON TO COME
    HOW CAN ONE ESCAPE THE DESTINY
    THAT CIRCUMSTANCES DECREE ?
    TO CONSTANTLY BE SINNED AGAINST

    • call 911 right away and tell them that
      you don’t own that hydrant anymore
      but you can bring them
      the eyes and ears of the last commie
      or leave them on the ice of msg
      before the next match

      • As if mounds of misogyny weren’t enough,
        Ancestors have collected too many smells
        To care about the past. But in the end,
        What do I know? Legions of fire hydrants
        Would only make it worth.

        fumbling for an explanation
        to ascertain the logic between the words,
        the way they run off like water droplets on a gradient
        blank page and the
        lunar surface of emptiness
        barren ice tundra
        the lonely oil rig offshore
        centuries old waves pound the battlements, crumbling
        dry river bed
        the bottom of the sea
        lost control of the submarine
        postmortem, the collapse of your favourite machine

            For my wine-addled mind:

            To boil them in an empty bottle
            To shove them into triangles
            To nail them to the pavement
            To autopsy them afterwards
            Or simply close them
            Too many choices and I want
            To make them all at once
