Ache: a thimbleful
Black Johannes thinks every tiny
a fetishTell me how that makes them
wrong. In aisle 4
produce offers wax
and cheerless pushes against
horror, abutting it. In hardware
rows of drawers teem
with machine tinies. Here a twist.
There, what and puncture. Screws,
squirrels, buried nails. A hopeful feel
that things could still be welded
together or cagedignoring rot
or given a year, or sawdust.
Is dry, operatic room-sized death
better death? Memine is
green eyes shot
out a shrunken fist
of potato. O my head, my
head. My moan flower.
