…what sight/ what sound/ what echoes/ occluded/ chasm lock of the beating trace/ deft again from out of blossoming/ hence the breathe of light remarks upon the surface/ till none or blood’s advance/ what then/ it shadows it is overshadowed/ the longing and the stone’s throw/ dice dealt/ bones to lack unknown of/ through fields of tall grass and spent caresses/ whispers these are not for the…/ obsolete now the carriage from neither unto nor/ from out of frenzy/ disregard or no/ or recollect/ the burn bites the teeth of screaming silently/ silenced or not/ no silence or the silence adamant/ in the breathe of sudden collapse/ what matter/ this is lock of welt upon welt/ the nausea of rind and taste/ the footstep/ the echo/ the echoes devouring the echo’s bones/ in traces like no other flesh/ the boot heel stamp of nothing/ once tasted/ ever/ never to be embraced/ the black stamps the bloodline the exile upon this of this/ no naught/ memorise/ dead what dead/ in this guillotine laughter/ traceless to ask of/ there’ll be/ said aloft upon a pyre of shit and offal-clamour/ the fingers the tongue are frozen/ dead stun/ no no revert/ all the while watched by the roving eye/ peeling/ in the artificial light…

…in echo’s chamber/ knock-knock/ dread stirring/ closed fist/ inebriate of solace tide/ where cleft alone bites the majesty of none/ of the dementia of X./ the black weight of all devoured/ shadowy nocturne of the bleed’s escapade/ give or taken/ spent light of the hung’s dissolve/ scattered skins scattered by the breeze/ all sight eradicated/ re-birthed/ back then till emptily/ sunk sight/ a butcher’s caress/ concrete kisses still the edge till nothing else/ becoming of the sight by which the dream exhales/ all strung together/ iced white/ diseased the words clamour of the hung light/ fleshed abandon in deserted rooms lacking desire or/ hence given to unfold/ dissipated wounds resurfacing unto/ claim claim of some foreign absenteeism/ knock-knock/ no answer/ the door is the wind’s promise of all else/ other than this/ as if it could be followed/ as still the shadow’s edge collapsed/ tidal immensity of murmurs lacking any merit/ screams that turn to dust as soon as they escape/ walls that peel of the solace nothing/ fleshless/ the black weight of/ no nothing ever/ not a trace/ fragments perhaps lacking traces/ transparent as the film coating the roving eye/ bitten by the dusts of collapse and final/ such is/ ever was…

…raped gardenias/ shock amber/ hollow hung a-breathe/ silt of/ the vein’s discharge of/ milked of exigency/ knuckles crack/ a blend of the hung light/ futile as the hand that gathers the bones of what of/ tomorrow what/ ash upon the lips that render stone to dust/ labyrinth eye/ eye/ eye/ eye what of/ what stun/ vent until else mocks the collapse/ skinned the flesh back from the bone it whispers through the damage seasons of/ futile as the…/ wastage of the marrow’s lights/ till drag of/ back then till onward knowing less/ voice what voice/ dissipating shit/ birthed with/ or…/ unspun/ shock amber/ nothing of/ of the nothing of/ claim or no upon/ collapse/ biting the light’s evade/ imploring as if it could/ a death mask of unrivalled emptiness/ drunk/ upon the hollow rapture of hope’s promise/ in hyenic lands/ laughter is long/ it is of/ laughter is not long/ the cloth that wipes the blood away/ bitten light’s abound/ cloaked in the ash that giveth and is taken away when final excavate/ not a sound/ empty sands/ the gardenias flourish where breath does not…
