focusing on one thing is how the Cyclops got his start

the one who was certain the tree that fell made a sound

a bleeder with no one to punch back

never reaching the higher dimension of a straight answer

the coaster keeps sticking to the bottom of my beer

a lone split-hoofed horse cropping tufts of Timothy

smoking alone in the prewar doom of my sulfur-yellow kitchen

flattening the creased pages of The Liturgy to Nintud

this is my catechism of frozen laces

when Quixote recanted I faced the giants alone

pissing in a jar I go to bed on the sunken side of failure
