first morning light in
time to feel that face
limits of it are skin
the skull as a case
all the way down to nipples, bowing to time
too much cholesterol this
body then goes down to the groin
limits unlimited unloaded behind
shit's an extension of the soul
back behind legs, to under-knee
cave of shadows always constricting
calves, heels, first light limit reached
shell still a self might say

how about this room
a self shelves of shit extension of its soul
floor crumbs invitations to traps set
poison gifted to ground
no visible swarm
not yet
leather chair for sitting and reading prosthetics
low hanging light despite outside sun
what to consume what to possess
in this shell of a self it says
no limits
skin creeps over to cover furniture
walls papered with cells
wallpaper cell seeds to what can be possessed outside
bodies and rooms and bodies of rooms
wrap in limits becoming won't end

/////
union of men
held together by laws and then
capitals and signals
the lightwaves the treadmills
derivative trading by machines with gills
why not sudden union then
llc persons breathing until water of night
and day and connected and feeling
the trades and the sales
the losses and gains
but mainly in frame
no matter
still faces the same

//////
gut as if there were still daylight
whir stir ring refracted as figure
of slender hand gesture
for capitals slurs
waved off now by foresight
but moment incurred
mazed in the moment of daylight dressed down
haze covers up all that might have once been found
no matter
no matter at all
just vomit of promise once sucked through the jaws

/////
don't suppose a pronoun
could fit in to index
to directions to daily
this that might be
him walking to her
it being they
we being together
bound up in all this that
i
scraps solace in dentities
continually crumble
then from dust rebuild
swirling up in devil
that dirt cyclone
this parking lot
him walking to her
but it being they
we being together
bound like particles atomized winds

/////
in index
lexical trove of subjects is
more than needed to bury self with names
each one a grain of field
mine aren't quite triggered
the fly up from ground
spring-loaded then faceless
again yet again
in index an end

/////
shroud overhead
white contours shadowed at creases
running from skull, smaller extensions further down
figure outlined
we know what is underneath
god masked by fresh sheets
clean enough to sleep in
white enough
where is sculptor of flesh
where is spinner of thread
where is decider of placement, here, just next to my bed

////
mouthful of sand
to wake up as dull flicking constellate
of aches
some dreams slowly melting into drain of day
some idiots through thin wall waking to the same
the same dreams
the same aches
the same day
dreams aches days
weather perhaps
trigger for age, air outside crisply grey
breathed in across divide, from gutter
first breath out a sigh
til sleep again
til dream again
till dreams again
same dreams again
of beach, low humidity, perfect sky
breeze and waves to cool skin
still later mindful of grains
of sands, each picked off by shower stream
down to drain
rushes in to fill my mouth
