say the name you know
won’t leave you. say the name
or say nothing - soon the living
can’t stay home. imagine saying
the name that can stop it.

imagine understanding it was right
dropping out of school
to see your father die
and sometimes it comes back
with a vision. imagine
if you really wanted out -

hear the grass dying
in the background.

and there is no someday hope
that you can remember,
that no one has died,
and now it owns you -
living as a punishment.

see how a long time
is only a thing in my pocket
a moment ago.
there wasn’t any palm reader who would pretend
to see anything in the basement. ordinary men who thought
the whole thing would be amusing always had them -
there was no one I truly believed in.

an accident arrived and lived on soup.
he was singing and hurrying home,
the same as I. the thief looking back
and disappearing.

summer tiger, stepping outward,
died in my care. every detail melted
beside the woodstove -
an abandoned post office had been waiting.

every detail looking back
and disappearing.
cork the sun,
imagine gutter light
washing the street -
the moon eating
a poster on my wall.

dirty songs, shirts hung to dry,
ghosts among the dead.

your hair smells like pages of the Bible.

child sciences, a beaten puppy
reciting weakness - these furious soldiers
waiting for music.

I tore from the flock.
are those your curtains drawn?
who could hate the phrasing
window, stares asking for help -
death itself outlived, and always
coming back.

beauty before a broken look,
torch in hand and better self
asleep - useless dreams.

a spectacle formed -
dogs getting sick.

terrible red clears the eye.
send for joy -
some evil oath,
pride without power.

rocks left for churches.

be equally strange,
fierce, and unfulfilled.
every day the same,
and then what?

the devil never known -
what criminals we have created.
