:: CUTS INTAGLIOS ::


 

out from perils of the sea

a scottish centaur pushes

in the dry earth loam

diaphora, variance

polyp & octopus

over the red wire

& over the berries

counterpoints, with

old carved stones

:::::::

 

the centaur heard a sea-surge

for the centaur is submarine

yes yes, “submarine,” & the

centaur fights a martlet

under the pepper

under the wire

under the olives

under the berries

by cypress, & mares

the slanted mirages

assimilated mirages

mirages as ruining

the old social order

:::::::

 

the sand that night

like an otter's back

(submerse the maritimes)

here & there an arm

or a leg upward in

the cold night with

trout, submerged

by the eels, the centaur

under my sphinxes with

sham egyptian columns

& murmurs as flutes

on the river the cold

reeds of invisible river

:::::::

 

osmosis, ideogram

black walnut, almond

(submerse the maritimes)

a mist weighs down

the wild thyme as the

scottish centaur destroys the

cuts of an imprint of intaglios

)))))))
