"whence
the terminator tells the entire kitchen staff to gather around
who's he to say?
to tell us to do a stupid dance"

"My eyes are the size of your pores,
Your pores like klein
Bottles boating Euclid's mooring -
Beauty is folding up its own laurels
Your callused skin wrinkling
In coniferous spines drop their pining
Like a Hyperinflated note"

"All silent. Dark background upon which there
makes a chance
I calibrate towards a wolf and from the sea.
I am hungry and not sure. Monday."
