Untitled


Torque-driven smart fibre-stitched catsuit
(A lifestyle choice)
Teaches its wearer the nebulous place that is ďhis.Ē
(Teaches him
In a way that's not nebulous.)
His sight dim
Behind olive green-painted
Slit metal flak goggles
Flecked steel, crimped inner curve
Like a mouthguard,
Or potsticker
Shaped like a crescent moon,
Or Marcel Duchampís loverís bronze vulva cleft
Cast invasively, Female Fig Leaf,
Of butterfly vibrator fixed on his face buzzes a scarlet tattoo
Like a finger that's shushing him,
Pressed to his lips.
The straps squeeze his full fleshy cheeks,
Cleanly shaved jaw, an extreme
Close-up proceeding to stroke a luxurious fairway expanse
Of magnificent pores
Dug out
With long narrow square-bladed blue spades
By groundskeepers, old
Young
Men's faces
Steeped
In a mixture of beer and cheap Mexican weed,
And then cured in the sun until tender and burnt-out and friendly and nodding along
As his muffled request for dismissal's ignored
By the woman attending.

I've got 3 other long poems on the same webpage:
"Fog of Culture War"
"'Priceless' Essentially Means Something Is of Great Value..." sec. 01, "Bottle and Sell It"
"Speak Bottle Rack Polish"

Priceless is a long poem, and only the 1st section is included. The entire poem's about a talented Hollywood actor who "sins against his talent" by taking bad roles in cheap, exploitative films, interested only in a paycheck.

All of the work is in a similar style.
I wrote the 1st 3 poems during 2015-16. "Speak" was drafted in 2002.

It's a great website--check it out!
