lucien of doom, colored by occasion, well that’s not

especially fair, my big bulbous respirator of a conq-

uest, I dedicate all my evacuated apologies to the

offended if clauses of the western picture plane such

as it secretes allegorical kinship with the practice

of press conference, the tonal torch thus passethed,

text me back, directors get to see all the animal stupor

but we get to observe all the rancor flatness beats off

the guts to be misshapen, the guts to reek wildly on

the wings of assassination, among other local toppings

upgrades suck, as little lies go in little lights, hopping

off the mad aves unbanned from life to unbutter the

same pants wearing day after  day & day & day & after

days & on & so many happy acks desperate when up

someone who doesn’t know me speaks through me

but the materials I was unhandling the unpan the

unspaced plane, how much unshit you need going

out to the edge’s of the unorganism’s…. I would like to

indulge all your vices at once on second sight this shit’s

an unad for thinking you know, put that this on aslant

of there’s my lazy-assed unmenace awkward channels &

their vaseline coated bodyguards & you & your what?

stinkifined tacit unity you owe yourself many hallucinations

‘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 Pregretsis about to come out from deciBel, & will contain 19 other poems from this pregrets/regrets/degrets assemblage in evidence over or up there.
