over
throat
about to

about to
wear
wide wash
of event
one wakes
in the margins
of error
to see
a hill
is empty

 

 

 


from neon
on the walkway
of all things
intersecting
just repeated
no future
knowledge
one watching
out the window
goes the gutted
window
another
imitation

echoes
w/sound
of something
not something
heading
towards
disappearance
towards
ashen
sense of

w/dark
time
fashioning
glow
of having
once filled
of having once
read of things
about to be
leveled
before
they were
phantom

ongoing money
of what is space
for but money
in the ongoing
flashbulb
age of what is
space but
about to
have been lit
with money
bends to fit
the shape
few trees
vacant

 

 

 


which is to say
the century of looking
as always
at a body
as always to exact
control
century of the eye
cinema too much
century
of wanting
only to look
the negative too
is pleasing
to have seen

history

 

 

 


of being taken
by storm
by what
wearing
thin
thing
has in
guests
to eat
fancy
new skin
of never
oneís own
heaps

 

 

 


for the taking
evacuated
room
oneís own
room
of body
filled
curiously
without
a way
to see
without
a way
to cease
