Tracing After Math of Sticks
unknown

The fused shadows japan
 1
off the small
 2
ladder, each rung
 3
forging on the night
 4
highway: a transparent iron
 5
escape on the oil truck
 6
ahead of me. Its
 7
eidolon
 8
punishes my ride into
 9
inebriated smiths working off ancest
 10
elixir, dath le fuil *
 11
 
 
of empty asphalt
 12
in lines that fall
 13
to riddles—undiscernable
 14
and wide with the consistency
 15
of an arachnoid invitation
 16
that's less than a head attachment
 17
falling back to laugh the same
 18
with time, and a spine smelling
 19
the hook molten
 20
to gamy rocks; rocks
 21
 
 
that admire the mustard
 22
and raw pthalo scales
 23
being ruined by perfecting
 24
their coulisse before the garden
 25
bruises: a skinned window
 26
 
 
filmy as eggs, jeweled as
 27
sacs of larva. Patient
 28
symbols herb and unanswer.

* dath le fuil, ( da-le-fool ), v., [ Gael.] color with blood .
