indirected questions

there are
other reason,



that propel,
in inverted

as spiral

to force &

in eyes, or centre
to the indices,

closing in directories,
crouching on meaning


copy clerk

the table waits, eight or so in a broken line,
take this, but watch the edges, a paper cut away,

a room of white & grey, too much grey,
follow work-flow, workplace understanding,

it’s a mess of this & that, but the name,
dress to suit, don’t look up, camera eye,

security & the old man who pushes mail through
a machine, find food, but here we go,

paper upon paper, file & forget,
the experts of prep, with a gap in diversity,

a serial reinforcement across the floor,
remove sticky notes & staples,

don’t read too much, but information is
important, & here we are,

smile & look away, bald head & glasses,
wandering eyes watch the copier copy,

then again, perforated edges, cough &
smoke exhales, over the next few days,

the room will grow, smaller, to miss
the open space, the moments within,

arms against, now again, a return,
accents in voices, the nasal sound

of time & broken vowels, listen,
but here, this short ceiling, these cubes,

a room slipped inside as an after-thought,
the stamper stamps, they know their way around,

the upbeat onset of a job accepted, what cost,
paper, a question extended, think

within contained parameters, feed
the scanner, sort & lift the tray,

read into lines
& broken ideologies

the sight collector

naturally occurs outside,
a box & a coin, the
phrase opposite, a
position or reason,
stand lateral the
instance, retrace the
movement, of the
same constants


eyes sink into sockets,
a value opens &
closes, because the
anode eroded


opposite the occasion, a
comma sliced in two


listening to layers, the
arriving at the surface


there are compliclarities
about the whole thing,
it’s difficult to see,
try a logic block, to
recapture reason


i hear sounds, metabolic
interpretations, joins &
tendons relationships


after a day, when rain
leaves marks on the windows
edge, prints of shape &
correspondence, maybe the
moon, the dogs licks her
bed, actions into manifestations


so suppose, i spelled
that wrong, comma
after the pen, send
a message down the
meridian, pass along
side, reach with extended
dorsal, not only does


lifted eye, of dropped
circumference, noted
between a 90° angle,
lesser of the two chairs,
exhale in, exhale out,
stapled to breath


of drifting regularities,
mapping the path, towards
remarkable inferences


opposed to the lateral, a
proposal on the medial,
one point to the


ventral, the co-lateral
development along the
triaxis of post-medial


the pilot drove over
to the left hand store,
reassured by the rising
costs, slept & walked


frozen in a trance of
inner perfection, looking
beyond the lost, listening
to the outer become inner,
a repeated silence
