Vamp (“avant pied”)

 

 

Why should a man,

in this age of anesthesiology,

seek relief

in the bark of the toothache tree?

Yet,

 

between America’s epigraph and epitaph;

yet, 

 

Melvin B. Tolson

 

 

 Of wants that lay in ought’s

 

 choking on the index

indeterminate

 

ancient pain.

Why subsonic sounds you hear of learned pain and obligation 

 

do indict

 an untenable posit, position: backspace

 

practices

pronounced the betwixt and between.

 

 

In laughter you acquit

the betwixt divided 

 

by half and half helped into the indecent 

parentheses brooding on 

 

reasoning, resonance—too much reverb

lay in the epilogue

 

granted, a summoning beyond 

exodus:

 

simulcast go forth and between. 

And half-cough decibels untenable

 

prologue, profane morph

you do brood.

 

 

Hands tied

to book, some designations anonymous, and yet….

 

Parentheses subsonic

self-correcting tape….  

 

And the index that contravenes title and thesis

 congress of papery

 

furor I read first to oblige the most inscribed 

script

 

in authorities who are profusely

off-screen

 

by half reading

scripturally wealthy ancient pain

 

through aggravated indexes whose authority writes

the author’s book 

 

whereas 

ascending gainsay

 

is op cit.

ocean front.

 

 

Here and now sacrament

a culture of

 

the sun

very much in the contemporary style:

 

are you? “Make conspicuous, evident” of heresy

to be reasonable

 

with antihistamine extruded from a leaf 

the modern chemist

 

in commencement, inclined to a very limited, in number relatively little

 since rebellion is clearly illegitimate to the existing 

 

amphitheater from dawn’s shouting white

Rubric, speak to me!

 

Not too transgressed

is this mylar

 

leaf-turning eventful type so that

(in reverse) no longer intelligible

 

mendicant

but legible as such

 

throughout the transistor dust in supposing that

as spouse to the amp seemingly discursive is she likewise  

 

opaque. 

 

 

 Tireless frequenting 

a culture of 

 

expenditure hitherto hands tied

to archive, marginalia expiring in the conjecture hastened the  

 

before and after

from dark to dust and dawn to drawn out indebtedness:

 

to where?

The poet likes to start from untenable moonlight, the photocopier in moonlight.

 

Although you answer the question I asked but not the one I meant

let me take another facsimile

 

 of the sun’s

formidable page 

 

and dragged impenetrable  

 

authorship of which may be indexes: mostly prior 

 names, most cited are not spectacular

 

corridors, and the sloping ground 

devolves

 

mylar that takes a bend and fold but does not 

find a solution, finds an antidote:

 

to the lexical comes the graphical 

intellect the other said, wrote and retaliated.

 

 

First

antagonism 

 

of graphical and lexical registers as is the transparency yclept

interference of verbal moments swerving through the long exposure 

 

to diaspora and the sloping ground  

amongst nations

 

you do indict.

 Onto staves drawn out legible an odyssey freely ad hoc

 

not aleatory, the other writhed and wrote

upheaval from which documents and entities were to elapse 

 

from the backspace

diametrically opposite: full stop ran the labyrinth 

 

as the match smoke bespeaks.

 

 

 

 

Griot Riot

 

 

[…] did not review the book: he reviewed his prejudices against modern poetry.

Laying oil over or oil / egg emulsion over dry pigment, a companion to vision

 

proprius, or what is one’s own, interpellation

 

to win the book of songs, during, and pin all probability on it

 

We also address the question: why do cultural movements need performative stances in manifestos?

 

Supplement or substrate sub stance subject to will whatsoever

 

near the surface is a slat brought by the Carpathian Basin’s non-chronological pronouncements

 

with the advent of agriculture and its attendant technologies by which the human extends his hand, et cetera,

 

I am thinking of a word that rhymes with “nurture”

 

the arms have worn away; worn away are the armaments against “an addendum of notes.”

 

 

You left your umbrella here. Worn away are the armaments:

 

some speak through aphorism, others harangue; still others enlist reasoning arguments

 

wanting the hearer to do something. The tracking number is

 

a name. Salt, silver, close to the surface

 

that brought about excavating a decidedly chronological thesis

 

in glass jars. The loss to your person, what is one’s own

 

coin of the missing dynastic imperative. Please pass the salt, silver

 

to change the current state of affairs by summoning the ochre.

 

A bias to sediment and letting it settle: a companion to jars.

 

 

In fly swatter negativity of the missing dynastic imperatives it behooved her

 

to change the current by summoning the brow

 

prow for a world that ought to be but that does not yet know its crazy notes.

 

The directive for vectors: Which? That? He asked. The bias started

 

This bias started in 1800, when William Wordsworth wrote

“Preface to Lyrical Ballads.”

 

Gift Idea: frame. The lunatic, then the very discursive model of the lunatic.

 

Painted surfaces exhortive or prophetic—where did I read this? Technique,

 

a companion to vision, wishing to know the transmitters Attic wit and nerve, is that.

 

Transdanubian communities procured their salt along the routes mentioned above.
