Things Come On

An Amneoir [my mother lives under the ground]

history becomes fate when
it’s over with

no more disjunct
than this world

A gateway timeout occurred
The server / is unreachable

History abounds
a keeling curve
this starts to be how it gets
to keening

love fitters : red void

Molly’s mussels live-o
while she dies-o —
that’s the point, see?

_____________________ A space
is a character too

One remembers that, if not what

The space is more historical
than the stars

ABOUT

I knew that I wanted to build the book around the records. In that respect, you could call it a ‘documentary poem.’
