Tender Reproach Aeronautics

By (August 1, 2013) No Comment

Constant orbit
of ancillary
crimes

The space coach
and the life coach
and the coach for the doggie door

Letters we draft
intuitively
to the self we were

before the self we are
realized its error
The underbelly

full of apple seeds
The rotten being so for being left on the ground
for too long

Projectivist and yet
Warring egos don’t enjoy
drinks together

Each the all-day
day-night drama
The largest hologram

in the sky
No one ever asked me if I wanted to share
everything
