1
mum –
backwards,
wry.

air – to be sucked
sibilating.
choking ensues.

“pillow” “perched”,
“plume” “forsaken” –
“slipping”…

a bit
piddling
precisely:

longing for a waft –
“seesaw dong:
cuckoo soot… – smite,
– nil… (fancy).

…- efface the sponge!”

unaffable chuckle serpentines:
shanks tangled…
froth in the nook of the mouth
chewed
out of slight despair but
stoned by thought…

spontaneous “discharge”
“points out” the “hollow”
“pea” “jacket”
“pocket” “squeezed”
“sighs”:
“bursts” –
“creeping” “bubble”
right into “the trap”.

 

2
lackadaisical sigh
– draws particular bamboozle

in the head:
elbow forest grows

– plash of the drone,
giggling – slap /
improper bellow wallows.

sudden jump of the hair –
bittersweet feel,
murky, amusing – like a clam blubber
knuckle tick tock
– knock-knock chop.

Then – glitter bizarre –
guzzling bliss,
jagged blow
– thought of the sweat rain…

jerk hoop –
flap,
beehive blurt.

blemish sound. negative

bubble lays down,
covers itself with a sheet
– goes to sleep. but how?

Clack
– elaborate blue. missing
frightening smooth, heaving blush.

crab attacks flowers. savage cuts.

rays of light dance around.

Fog is coming to dissolve it all.

empty place. And then a hill starts growing,
swelling more and more – and then
it turns into a volcano – huffy, perplexing
timid stillness
.

 

4
benevolent urge of exuberance.
– IMPACT;
matters profusely.
gewgaw tinkle:

…. cord – squeezed and twisted…

bottom – crushed,
pumps smoke.
squashing sinew….
….: WHUD: wad-wad
sawtooth-sine afore eyes
shredding gaudy tidbits

soup moment….
whistle
