A Selection from 'All Stepped/ Undone', (Oneiros Books).





writhing-

breath(en) fall

atrophy of meat/
             din of the benign bones

   all shorn
             asked of

tears that the dead do not ponder

asked of the spasm
break lest you’ll ever answer

fallen/ earth(en)
sky alone will not save nor the futile heart of it

rat’s teeth in a gullet gallery the meat hooks sway

raw as carcass kisses of the night
(said again)

I writhing       in the

           shit of it



---


stitch-

blind scars/
    the laughter’s abyss

settled to the shiv of breath
          mocking

the stitch of reprieve

spun dead
but one/ lock-alack/…

(silent as…
      wavering of…)

when wavering walls blind mine I
(fragmentary…)

as if/ because/ said/ murmured

bleak ash
the blood beneath the fingernails of silence

mocking the itch

stitch
of the redeem



---


abounding-

(in)skin of none/
                  embers    final

and the balk of
despair’s cleft/ obscene

the dregs the taste of swollen eyes
(O)piated

the fields close around the throat of fist
I/
    left to scarring

redolent
of the breath irredeemable

trading bone dice
for shadow’s bound and winds to know

I spy/ kaleidoscope
the infinite

I am of the none/ stun abounding



---


 of endless/-
 

anointed heart/
                        fallen of/
till absence

escapade none
(I-con
          cave)

spun alack/ out of which/ one hand extracting the skeletal of
beneath the meat of sun’s light

dusts of char
rocking the dead limbs of the sky’s excise

a mortuary trace
breath/ sky/ nothing less than

I/ (hop-scotch)
in the sharpened teeth of

endless/
                                             night




---


mimicry-
 

viper earth/ theatre of…
grave(n)/
         vault of

unspoken death of a cataract skyline
I alone/
               spun lock until

in the traces of bled dry
     ever-less

the ever-less of

the collapsed bones of purpose
salve of the un-being

I of the whispering/
                           said less

the better said the more of which from less till follow
on from

the candle extinguished
a garrotted throat

and bled neck of foreign
posing no…

all distances/
                the mimicry of…
