machine gun 1

anemones mine enemies

mined mostly for my many needs

a momentary multifreeze

of jellyfished amphetamines

(a foal eats probably

all of these—amphibians


swimming along whirly pools

hot tubs in homes of ghouls

& laughter pendulumming to)

a clock stopped

at ate pass tree

—catalyst of fly & freak

harbinger of lime & leak


all of this & that thing too

(maggots measure time & tea)


from machine gun (chapbook forthcoming)
