pregrettably S has caught the reading virus

polka dot pink dress crimson cover baked

salmon w/shiny booger green stars, all the

character shards deliberate shots on the bus

into head wheels rolling over offhand passing

by sounds, vita corpus activa deiduh, do

anything you want with the dead language

dearie, closed shoulder monsters shop for laps

the driver wants to color instead of drive

I could bobcatdroolterview the bird sound

behind me to Death! Death! Death! & All

Other Terminals but instead goblin cookies

to hang in Jack Frost’s throne room, speeding

off from the hypnosis of remarks – no doubles

no hazmats – we’re going to be swallowed

no, embedded, as a ruse – she knows we’re

hiding cookies – you lack preservatives, now

the fairy is serial and cheap, so high as to be

necessity’s future enemy all over again

 

 

 

 

berriganAnselm Berrigan‘s books include Notes from Irrelevance, a semi-rational long poem made out of self-imposed detours & published by Wave Books, and Loading, a set of poems written parallel to (i.e. in indirect collaboration with) paintings and works on paper by Jonathan Allen & published by Brooklyn Arts Press. Primitive State, a single poem made of discontinuous expressive units of composition using space as a flotation device, will be published at some point soon by Edge Books. A chapbook called Pregrets is about to come out from deciBel, & will contain 19 other poems from this pregrets/regrets/degrets assemblage in evidence over or up there.
