primordial tautology

and so it spun its web in

anticipatory mourning,

dancing to the wingbeat of flies,

knowing that it all ends there and

subdued by witnessing flesh

after which 

comes the furnace of



A straight line is a house of fear—

a rite of ascesis 

debarring pullulation

a long-drawn-out punctuation—

a protracted dying,

if only to elude

the oval gaping maw,

now a scarred plenum—

the body desacralized

on which—I—hang
