Mathewson 11


Micro aggressions rise blank to ascension: ur-cut,

savage, to omit the dupe—(re)emerges to femme

a skin of guts an oblique attraction. Earl Shoepeg

sucks Eddy’s soul. Earl’s an Eddy rumpologist (‘st):

burned as impurity, agent of rapture in alchemy’s

concrete trellis: McEddy coins Earl. The televised

repulsed (s)form improvises vises of imp. Scranton

is the iron-scrappy of a wicked near future: ture, re,

rrrgrrl—pure skin of a song of girl hears only me.

My/our head: sheer paralysis: imps of consensus.

Eddy is far afield. The serious of piss and norms.

Beauty of bone. No wonder/wander. He passes

gaunt, love a miner from to mine her/him after

to love cum Earl’s logic washes a duck’s glee.



Danger 1026


Eddy courts danger: evangelical rabbi, traced in impurity

and flavor—cereal grains of taters and lips or mid-sugars

and fruits. Eddy jones for a revenge move, not mix-mixed

or served chilled. Eddy’s poems are grafts of intent: instant

allegation, distilled and postfix of a she-jen called gorzałka

(from the Old Polishgorzeć as to burn), merchant cleanse

to storm the grain, dilutes water—glossed as to “rectify

corn-spirits” of the test. Stop staring at me romance/me.

How many meals in Poland are served? How are lights?

The acqua vitae of hear: bimber, brennvin, Eddy drinks

the new beat of increased purity. Beat down. Beat hip: ip,

it, me—me real, me high, it, when cease ceases to be it,

Eddy’s an horilka, lust awakened from rye breaking she

as steady he gropes a rural stint with orange pulverizer.



Mandy 1972


The Amanda of gerundive, non-finite as portandus,

is carried to futurity with the help of Lord Ray. Boxes

are the stables of transport, or simply, worthy to love

the golden mean of moderation. In light conversation,

the canon of closure cuts a thin Mandy with a Mickey

Finn. Before fat and happy, I hated the grope. Chloral

Hydrate was a designer jean. They doctorated curves

in the renaissance of mental health. Eddy knew Manda

as a keeper of the priory, before nothing felt measure.

Now, Amanda ranks in the name: Milly-Molly-Mandy.

Mandy’s shema heard handy in oz of night, late dark

because the emerald is drank to expose a mere behind

the curtain of return. Farce plays manner. Farce kicks

a goat-girl escaping the flock. Among an only left to.
