The virtual reality sinecure assembles

represents the fist. Its polarity quickens the intense
moment of the crossing integer of fixed polarities
mixed with the dangers of polenta rising
against the nick of cadenzas deadly in their baggaged flight
dissembled in the porter s mist. No twist of fakery here,
leering ampules of Golgotha amid the syringes

Their roots thread the equations of tropical rigor

ardor. The enemy, nefarious,
parked its car at the grate
of cheese whose door darkened
spearmint luminaries
in dissenting cages, raging their
maledictions through transparent
doors, intent, apparently
on waging salaries
at the source of their afflictions
for the snake of dis-
parity, serpentine with eagle mist.
Enclosures of the corresponding odor

As noir s diffident fury strikes
urban alleys with Punic rage the arborian
stentor whispers shatter-glass vibrations against
the shakers of candlelight
& gold streaks flush the nuisance of its licentious bid

of Pythian silence pertaining to science
of lost prophecy: the gold forever gone,
no blind voice to sight its hidden ware

As the sonic booms its arborian cement
the prophetic scent lingers, its singeing
intent bathetic as the score turns the com-
poser s page, dotting its foppish delights
dappling the gray facades & drawing rooms
with tossed drinks & trinkets & cast-asides
of thousands, a spectacle of sight, of smell,

of lions furring the reptiles

Instead of pursuit salt chose the greater opticon
burning its insensate visions of the redefined

the op cit whose literature never was,
nor toned bodies of tooth decay ramping
access routes to the rural pathways
tramped as steamers boot across oceans
holding patterns maintained as souls in the holds
crossing the tide of bleary-eyed modulations
suiting the globe in its arboreal treasury.
See your suckers brachiate the forests of need,
of cats treed in fugues of doggerel ambush.

Dished of its own, a chord
structures its pithy hell, met with grave
strictures inflicting consonants implicit in discordant
tone. There the plate of attitude feeds the umbral hunger
seeds of aleatoric rhetoric ensconced
in fruits of broken tradition. To shadow the act
of consequence, muster must fester & bleed.
The pained tears of countenance
feed on granite faces granted amnesty
from history & its malcontents. Coming from
the north they set their compasses,
yet freed from vicissitudes of direction
the cluster breeds its circulars in flight
disseminating leaflets
among the autumn foliage & traffic

candles vapid in the radio night,
delay the lurking shadows of noir.
Adolescent romance fades rapidly
under music that sways no tonic.
The nautilus submerges its pulse
in grandiose fictions of throbbing
biological urges both glandular &
wet. Vandals of pure emotion set
predatory sights on virginal prey.
Songs of yesterday breed no light,
only shadowed flesh, once fresh
now thickened with dreams lost
to memory s lingering vagueness:
a muffled voice, a sniffled tear held
back among now-laughable ruins.
An unfounded civilization s shards
the dreamer s archaeological digs,
the remnants of emotions rent past
due, the pained nerve endings now
blunt as bank transactions recording
bad investments. And the test of
memory slows its pace to ballad,
the lull of a distant place accrues
layer by layer its shredded gauze
59
& a triple chorus blues in deference
to days long gone to rue lone nights.
A sentence voids its crystal meaning
with the tarnish of a tempered hue
so distant from the youthful blush,
its hush no longer born of pride so
much as still. The music sings its
own slow pace, its chords of lost
harmonies linger, garnering the
lush growth of forgotten trees in
past forests, a blues-tinged chorus
dimly radiant before the future

across the horizontal continuum of the leaping synapse to being juxtaposed,
its formerly binary cattle crossing a delineation of consciousness with sated
ruins of syntactical artifacts lost in the stratagem’s diamond battle against the
vertical strata of consonantal conspiracies. The grammar police have lost their
forceps to community foreskins, no sin taxation without tea party sabotage,
pinkies extended overboard as champagne cargo, the representation a must
for the dust dwellers of history pontificating behind their castle motes,
rumbling politely as diatonic bass clef figurines, the key bored beyond the
code word of entry. New form begets old and its paradox breeds better,
swilling blue blood in post-perceptual repositories dubbed ego and sampled
wherever vintages are sold. The cask of dead fluids conjures leukocyte magic
played at low volume. Remnants of past glories raise old flags and paeans to
liquid prunes. The foretaste suffices for eating. Its groundswell of justifications
decomposes the field for the recomposition of its successors, no reticence
applied for, nor taken. Its visage presupposes consciousness where nuns exist
but couscous. The visceral endemic lacerates the shunning tide, its rum-
soaked trade holding its own among the skippers while melanin defines the
edge. Centripetal tenter hooves the tether of ancient galleries, where frayed
theories flay their last breaths at practice. The moment becomes itself,
efficient with flattery. Sanctuary becomes impossible in the repetition of
columnar dread. No cable extends its infancy. The pillage of community values
proceeds for width past its distant measure. Clamoring burlap tunics stump
forth from the lost caves of ancient privilege, their shamans evoking exorcistic
rites, their luminous calls to. Assuage the sins of commas where colonoscopy
fears to tread. No participle need seek its self-contained ruin. The ancient seed
grows itself parsed anon. Amid archaic phrases the younger seek their dudes.
And music cons the temporary id. Threading sequences ravel themselves or
un. The case may be whatever. One knows. One says. The other. Stasis breeds
metastasis and other cancers. Cells multiply using calculators while the line
seeks its own definition moving as being that is being moves across the field
of composition, threading itself to the animate-inanimate continuum it
transgresses sedimentary vertical hierarchies to continue igneous lines of

fervent oblong majesty requests amber

cramp obviates as necessary measure
before coastal tangents boast: their weather
attuned to measure lemming forecasts
as the natal forecastle nitrates brooding
muscatel.
Statutes of plenitude
forbear the urban striations.
Where the strangulations abound,
neither the nasty nor the choleric shall weep
the seed of their inner punctuation. At mammals
tide the showcase renounces all vendors. Illicit
plumage tides the encumbered seal to gravity
as other matters. The suited fit shall stretch
its languid days in strapping bondage for

the hammered latitudes requesting season.
Eagles swim the headlight current, water crest

Evidentiary riddles dismember the tide

prescient retention loud convention mapping
grates ibid the cockpit teal. Weather regrets
lipid pools fatty advocates breathe sludge
to doubtful quagmires. Riding dentures
shaft the cognitive escarole dating nubile

a magnetic residue magenta

obligating past dances to sue
last vagaries raging to tumble class extinctions
a lettered dread withheld. Spiked eels plate the tide
as markers spread their cactus truths. The prickling
rhythm casts synergy’s opprobrium faster than extra
contracts remit. All syntactical ablative surrogates
having been. Model fortunes teal their limousines
flash bulbs screaming ecstasy’s orgasmic peak.

shift to seconds, holding weaponry hostile.
The grip seizes the rigor, eases festive
brigands to fusions of multiple vigor.
Enunciations ensure the litigants.
Impoverished brigadiers improvise
coats of slate to recent
abduction. Reasoning auctions
lowest bidders to vanity.

Erasure:
the tongue

under adipose reefer subjunctive perambulate
seeks the pineal effulgence of sensors casting
the sundry penumbral filtered estimates
of ancestral effulgence

procreating the visor
invokes the visceral elision,
their shadows turned subvocal
textures of tangent umber

No admirable filibuster followed its defeat, nor
admirable percussive adversaries
eating flint Custer gridlock scalps
a dessert served the elusive emissary
to hostage bars
of temperate bawdry filleted
to leather-flayed lungs
its informal gland a rarity
among libidos in poker-faced slums
chasing lost tongues down dim alleys

Tied-tongue:
the erasure of
rhythm systems
a predicate as presumptive as its active juncture
floods its chronic ampersand dowry until pineal
remands the clinical suede
to sharpening its tabloid razor
demands for adjunct formalities
while endlessly repeating
its lumbering imperatives
as shades of caustic umbrage

throwbacks lacking visible ultimatums if the truth be strewn

college prairies that inure their causal imprecations to

or taking their pleasure as distant hordes deride the flambee of insistent
molecules never addressing the instigation that stays alive in the face of all
correspondents persuasive or otherwise in their injurious tint take the
measure of extraneous ramparts nuzzling goat odes and pastries among the
lost continents hermetically sealed and proven to muzzle dissent when
boarding insistent gravures for posturing in their own likenesses as others

natal oranges who arraign valid receptacles in spurious tenements of hoagie
squalor beckoning by the bread of design to imprecate nozzles reckoning
the percentage of improprieties deferred pending further negation aching
for putative remedies accosting corner vendors at apricot wages whether
the sequin
returns to its roots

the pulse of being

a status quo vaguely remembered

a dynamic

Its underbelly maintains its activation,
its dynamic in need of translation to the western shores.
399
Elliptic caterwauling decreases polysynaptic censure
in children of vertiginous entities known only to the cognoscenti.
The pleasures of distant hordes
deriding the flambee of insistent molecules
never address the instigation
that stays alive
in the face of all correspondents
or the carryover
from one to the next, whatever
in all its permutations | the fall of its complacent trajectory

| a mere shiftlessness in flight
No dragoon will allow |

The arson breeding gentle flames
prolongs its tailed encumbrance,
neither blocking nor plating its fill.
The leathered grimace of paste acne
glimmers the glowing grin
its secret arpeggio
clustered
401
a subglottal lust
kept private.
No marcher ever retained
the thrust of a paginal entry
nor diaries the forethought.
The harsh discipline that awaits
black leather’s tumid acumen
restores the throttle’s vivid onslaught
nor the sentries of the imagination
their pyrrhic defense
once thought illumined.
Chastities leap ashore
at the moribund document’s hedge
the limpid appraisal
factoring blue judgements
at the collar tore
the reaping benefit leaping
tungsten irregulars
toward the oracular circle
spinning the light of its grin
as it bids the return to

its structure a manipulation of consciousness in movement in the moment
as time fixes its passing yet moves erasure no trace of its complexity hints
that hire exterior designers or casing the hold that carries the music higher
than the pain of its knowledge a vintage trustee courier mementos offspring
the gapping insistence on fresh molecules toward itemized splendor a retail
institution fondly dismembered for its detailed application formalists who
entreat the beggar to stay his hand at the lowing switch of lewd embassies
engaged in oral clusters lusting policy papers enraging the proles’ slow ploy
a tender asphyxiation limned front and back its desuetude a nozzle for
comic belief and aspirin girded the green frontiers past vengeance or
memory
an undercurrent
remembering the distant hues
burning at the delayed boundaries
an aberrant
depicting frayed memories
gray from overuse
pleading its eyes
toward the future

a parcel slowly remembered
its fluctuating givens
The slow aftertaste
of its remains delivered
punctuation’s worn liver
A cream cheese ostinato
flagrant as desiccation
delivered its diary
(its music
a slow flattery
of arpeggios) Flattened pages its barrier
the hermitage began
all for naught, its rocket onslaught
the betterment
of its Pleistocene heroics
404
The transglottal epithets of bituminous ledgers
bloat their inharmonious decree, its badgered measure
pausing amethyst. Whereas the curtain decree
breeds uncertain entities, its hidden clause persists
as a needy follicle haired with oil and burly pedicures
to blanche at. The keepers of the latest scorecard
franchise the database with 20/20 anthracite
begrudging the postcard its anthrax. Whose mentors
indulged their facts, their little favors? None, the withered
sports card sells at binary auctions, splitting octaves
over civil disobedience. No nocturne shall prevail
when the present modality shifts with justification,
a hint at the manner of the premises. The red falsetto
reaping its song as a right-wing diva’s delight owes
its glen plaid history to harbingers of past events,
none more evident than the casual sprinkling of articles
sowing mass consumption. The pledge to obscurity
weathers the seed of aesthetic contention, as always.
Who knows who says what as when, the secret of
their timing? Internal derailment tracks its own gear.
The tweedy nominative predicates itself in word games.
Others scrabble for whims of pastry and social justice,
a slate never in dispute as pavement or policy.
At its center, the rhetoric speaks
black mysteries to the midnight sun,
obsidian glimmer of the post-taste era.
Nighty auctions accrue dead members,
tempers simmering under spite fits
and spit fights their teenage years
ensuing the cry and the rattle

405
intensity screams at this juncture, losing its font to Garamond for a bold
moment before retrieving itself as a statement of consistency in the face of
praxis. A variation of chromatic perception alters construction on the face of
it, stretching the boundaries of stability, where

To the natal shore
the water’s flow, placental drift slowly uplifting

The wage beyond the way

and triangulates reciprocation tries to implicate
blue postures

the jodhpurs fell their hollow ring
the riff
sinuous as forgotten memories recalled
insinuating
the gray fuzz surface of late morning

Despite a sense of stammering might

inflicted on seismic grottos

mysterious whims of content
toward vines of empty jewelry boxes
demanding the taste of obscure

regardless of footage or entertainment posed in transit of wary lepers an eye
turned toward deterioration a shunning outburst of victors applause from
the authors of history making charitable donations of their egos to the latest
cross or other adapted symbol glossing the truths of night in teal amulets
squeezing traps where tinkers set barristers on their sides before quaffing
empty purgatives and lamenting periodontal loss as a fact of majesty
pontoons aforethought
where measures never end
their disenfranchised dichotomy
nor shrapnel beats
its feathered brow
to frenzied biscuits

of slanted hopes,
festive glossolalia
beyond the vertical’s

of voice opens the skies to a
new hierarchy, the Dionysian
angle dangling across the vertical
a vascular motif lasting longer than
the Appollonian vertical can. Ego loss
opens the glottal stricture to restive energy’s
release. Voices soaring from the visceral plane
launch ecstatic pitches skyward. Their vibrato retains
its torque, sustains the tones bending expressions beyond
the known. The quest for the unfamiliar begins here, in the tonal
grotto, sound moves momentum along the horizontal, a mix merging
at the verge of U P W A R D, surging
O U T W A R D

bursting open as the sky ringing the tonic from the ancient hold, fast
past the sails, drum beats rooting the ground its rhizome spread

and to seize the voice’s wings and ride them to a plane
beyond the cubicles of sea and [: shed :] the strictures
of the uprights who led them down below, beyond
the crow’s next mocking the line to the raven
mocking their power and its own with flight.

a mode once eclectic turned electric
as aural felicitations breed faked greetings
wherever forecastle legends go untold
in the cargo hold as its music
rises from primordial stench to quicken the dead
whose headers and footers likely breed
insatiable needs for the ineradicable suture
of present to past no line like the presentiment cast
for the upstream spawning old dawns renewed
against vertical wishes threatening taxonomic vapors
and vestiges of dust as cartilage assaulting
muster gas as weapons of flatulent intonation

Insinuations precede institutional verity, forthcoming assertions hasty as
gray width and surrogate proclamations. No spotted hound shall park in the

switch to pre-electronic haiku vessels. Amplified shards resonate wicked
philandering costumes, parties sold the last voyage artifacts at unction.

rejecting this offer, no correct form

for glyphic mysteries scrawled
by nearly all societies, secret rites forgotten
except in the searchers’ sequestered study,
ancient hymnals no longer leading the way
by examples of faith and chastity
to the brink of the Moebian shimmering
before glass-eyed seekers, optics shrieking
movement out of stone, the alchemy of quest:
lead into gold, stone into motion
turning on the fate of it
or lack, a unicorn dream unfilled
as an empty cornucopia, its formulaic content
spilled with the victor spoiling for more
than its due cure for dispassionate laundry
service or feudal vectors invigorated
through the pineal eyesore sectors of
an internecine tremolo formation
or trails of rabid photoengraving,
trials of saviors disengaged from franchise,
disputes raving gravestone retribution
elusive as penitence among viper baskets
rash with pituitary assertions trashing
the sanctity of the middle eye
glowing Cassandroid presentiment
amid a hissing basket of asps
kissing portfolio travesties remiss
in their lateral desuetude, a collateral
quandary of nasal amplitude
incipient raiments of third mind decay
templar associative template mergers
given the thirty-second decree
soaring above the last trajectory
arching naked though the wingless sky
wherever mystic secrets foretold
the sacred question forever asked,
its scrolled answer never unrolled
near the casket of the Dead Sea

Pretend their lugubrious offspring

touched the pencil. Movement stopped. Then resumed, slow as genuflection
into the present tense. It matters. Litigious or not, invective seems less than
its propriety nature would invigorate. Centipede mileage castoff perfumes.
Sharpened rigor escalates the bannister capers, no width ever assured in
the darkened strata where pineal laundry casts its wafer. The torrid
assemblage held the grotto against all corners. Grating against the rounded
edge, the caterpillar’s strict necessity entailed rolling half-tracks across its
greater expanse. Whoever’s reverie fits the hindmost equation. No subject
is ever the same after its verb. Cross-stitching polymers isotopic membrane
hollows ether as its nascent crux. A little bidding goes along way. Past
surrey litigants the hostage wheezes fructose enmities, detailing the retail

accruing mottled excalibur nitrates.
Filamental regulars receive neuralgia plates

their moribund linkage as they slink past

hand to mouth muttering, low decibels ringing
their faint perpetuity. Lectured conundrums

escarpment to the latter-day vestibule
peeking through the blue redolence
where nightly gestation seeds the boot
of its acetate volley. Circumferential
evidence moot as its caloric decay,
the folly continues late hours blooming
polytonal necessity declarations, a mirror

thundering scalpel obtrusion fortifies
pure vagaries at the mishap. Where fortitude

Recumbent anodyne atrocity pamphlets
brochure the certain of new vexation.
Obscure as ancient diatribes rejecting
the status quo’s latent invective, sure hands
slide their shredded laundry gestures,
cargo to the touch. Fortified ruination, as such,
lures brazen templates to the legend.
No assurances, but germinal opprobrium
desiccates the list. Its lumbering terms
pure as its crazed offspring, assured delegates
ponder ostensible humanoid endeavors.
The voltage of softened triage intensifies
the battles for foundling operatives,
their insensate maneuvers trickling
down the path of flattering forbears.
Jacklight majesty their hunting ilk,
vendors collide. Rapacious horticultural avatars
ensnare their pentagonal radar fix. An admixture
of natal quandaries fixed as gradients.
Occupational slandering carnival implications
rubbed raw as econometric pudding slashes
granulate the pediatric sarcoma phosphate mix,
a fixture among the duly anointed keepers
of the incremental pedestal. Diadems per dozen
snatch electric gradients. Fossils fulminate
impossible radiance as photo ops recur.
Retrospective tribunals freon acetate,
communal from their elite perspective
as dialogue regenerates syllables
of empty meaning. Inept constabularies
treasure their posts. Vipers cling
to radial pleasure strokes, hyping
translucent fluid. By any measure,
their calculations multiply foretold
as any Cassandroid tragedian
could depict. Ovarian subsidies
watch the secret cells divide

migration strategy reflections,
a dalliance to renew encampment.
Ensuing hot-loined confusion,
reiterating ancillary nodules,
emancipates dead overtures.
Vanishing finaglers without
assignment shut down
the dangers and pain
at their latest leaving.
Regaining the tainted edge,
their desire squared at
the psychopath’s eruption.
The deluge pertaining
to cryptic difficulties
demanded cryogenic redress
from its partisans. Remanded
custodians wearing dentures
parked their vesicles, elsewhere
stratified nation inflections,
the dialects overdue. The cabinet
pursues deltoid illusion,
perpetuating canceled ovules.
Over the unread proclamation,
doubts vanished like plagues
of low cuts. Only the gowns
remaindered, consignment

Pledging to obtain the ledger,
a fair caveat aired by fire
disrupted the sycophant.
Seeking refuge, it regained
glyptic faculties with
commanders crying on the dresses
of their courtesans. Even-handed
adventurers bearing melodious
harps to the vestibules,
packed their vehicles.
Filial boundaries
skirt the wordage

To regard the low

residual collocation enamors fibroid lottery hatcheries,
a branding-iron quadrant litigates the thread of vacant
paramours isolated in the kumquat setting. Its penchant
for accumulated vagaries quenches thirsty missteps in
the wake of ancient centipedes berating thatched his-
tories. A thorough search of their mettle defectors takes
carcinogenic vagaries to hearten artichoke ravings. A
badge of predatory rapture synthesizes their crucial
animosity, saving the best for the past. Relocation
clamors destitute bravery in the face of vast cities
moving in rotation across the predicated skyline, a story
of predatorial rumination preceding illumination in
matters of lost consequence. Receding victories
thunder dead accolades, faint in the distance.
Restitution needs retribution, a grudge match of
intrinsic parallels. To scam the horizon, a poker bluffs its
stroking hand, sizing up derision acetates and
discarding visionary mews at the crossroads. To upload
the incurious fontanelle, the imbricated swelling of
implicated starts re-grates its sun field, shadowing
acrimonious subdivisions at level entry. The matching
craft shudders its artisans through the sealed gate.
After hatching the plan, their hatred revealed grandiose
muttering. Their preceding histories wrote the winners
buried under their load. Goaded by their pronoun haze,
the blazers of new pathologies swore by their gartered
necklines that no protrusion would emerge under the
auspices of their canceled reflections or any other
misdirections of retributive allocation. Any other
situation would forestall the consummation of its
wherewithal, however devoutly. Its attrition speaks
nightly as fireworks light the shadows of catwalk
umbrage. Suspicion breeds forthright platitudes.
Lumbering needs make themselves felt, for the right
price. No attitudes accepted. Cash or credentials.
Without the urge to razor the felt strops tumbling over
insulated junctures, night dice will rattle concrete alleys
talking under fated breath. Discreet allies appear too

Luminescent phantom operatives

no anthem attached. To match
below the actor’s stricken ardor line,
a wired seed must tumble farther

The quid pro quo in the amateur’s offing
seeks its gathering.
Dropping leaflets on the far shore,
sidereal displays reap suitors folly

precludes lost inventions
from reaching exclusionary overtures. Throttled
midriff statues pillaging arterial home factorials
elongate their lonely pledge. The owners lifted
precursory curfews. A rift among the purloined

assuage their purple night. Acceptable where

aphoristic terms, stark as its mutational frenzy.
Avocado laundromat soup perplexed the many

before them and after lunch. Pails proceeded to
empty stores, railing along the milky bannister.
Guacamole sunsets dipped in the western sky,

from the less polite

Incremental striation pleasantries breed
captive nomenclature. Worse than pity,
it seeds remorseful stature among

Weaving hirsute anomaly fractures

Incidental symmetry gathers no loss.

braving visceral constraints against avuncular templates
sutured
for the mass. Propriety shelters tax
the needy who ask for more than they can
give. Against the fiery prototype,
alive and sweltering, classic welts
model their swollen roles.
Future tasks
recriminate scheduled ossification tatters
defrayed. Sheer mutiny threaders prolong
their better mentors. Bulling toward their
betterment, home improvements darken
syntactic elastic models.
Their asking
prices relayed their plasticine upgrade
modalities. Sweeping nodular tonalities
replayed insistent commands. Remanded
vectors unmanned. Counterpoint resists
tonal occlusions. Dampened molecules
tempered the unmasking.
Wherever
glass tactics accrued an assured nobility
the tactile passages met renewal. Acting
lessons contaminate as residual, throttle
tendencies to bicker. Where rotogravure
installations seem, to beckon the senses
calibrating centrifugal assimilation treaties

PRELUDE
Ecstasy occurs at the point of pre-construction. Extrapolating from
Jean-Paul Sartre’s The Transcendence of the Ego, IMPROVISATIONS
writes the moment of perception before the “I” forms by processing the
sensory data: a pre-construction. Deconstruction, automatic writing,
L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poetry, Concrete poetry and author-generated
indeterminacy— a literary analogue to free jazz. IMPROVISATIONS
extends Jack Kerouac’s Spontaneous Bop Prosody to the immediacy of
open form—not Bird blowing two choruses on“rhythm” changes but
Cecil Taylor plunking “IS”on a verbal keyboard: energy music, shape-
shifting formcontent ecstasy in the moment of creation/pre-construction.
The computer (as solo and ensemble “instrument”) updates Charles
Olson’s compositional field with varied fonts, font sizes, tables, text
boxes, text justification, watermarks and graphic elements. Linguistic
alchemy: sound becomes sight, creates and releases tension inherent
between fixed and fluid forms. Outside the linear: Being as transitive
state, meta-poem as real time process, moment freezing to history’s
glyph thaws back to movement, vertical and horizontal lines opposing
histories/philosophies/modes of being, jazz coming from Africa in holds
of slave ships, and contemporary American political climate, among
others, recur as riffs/motifs in varying aural and visual contexts. In
reading/mind performance, space=pace: stanzas breathing white read
more slowly than full justification passages no punctuation high-energy
race horse tempo. Text as texture. Punctuation beats pulse or rim-shot.
Columns and tables read consecutively or concurrently: text as
interactive score, one voice orchestrated as multiple— linguistic
polytonality. Choose the route, or several, through the moment’s real-
time prism. It’s performance now.
