gyproc one

the membrane in the wall ate my dinner last night

this morning, it is all gyproc

 

i am thinner; the cat is getting fat

the moon is weeping—no parakeets

 

there was a jug on this table

thrown in the image of me

i hope the thief has planted a geranium there

 

kiss me, my youth is broken

put out the light bulb

it likes to roam at night

 

rome didn’t collapse in a day, you know

Connoiseur number 1 and 2

Number One

 

I like my poems anorexic

opined the connoisseur

I want to stroke their little bones

 

Number Two

 

suffering

oozed the connoisseur

is relative

 

my approbation is worthy of your suffering

 

I am sensitive

that is my gift

in death…

in death your cousins are generous

I tell the smiling windowsill friends

their bones

have brought us through again

an empty house…

an empty house is treasure

a ruin is a treasure simplified

when the trees establish

walls collapse

we can relax

Two Horses

I watched two horses rubbing noses
I don’t know why
don’t know what happened next
the frame was moving

But something in me lifted, lightened
something
stretched back behind
as the train pulled me into sunshine
