Abstract

DUO DUO Three Poems think of this word This thinking, full empty , this meaning, the mine, the spellbo und, the force from the coal s eam, the blood seamed deep in the forma tion, the intersection where humans are spille d out, the shake of the left hand, the hole that’s left t here— think of this death, this don’t-know-how-to-die. Inside the sand, upright spines are bur ied, and on their shoulders are cemeteries and construct ion sites. Inside the tent, death is too much exp osed. e b Th urial releases a force . Before that, invested in the pit is the credit o f time. From the center flow out the pre-death ev ents, in silence . Above the constructed and to-be-constructed wi lderness is the history, in which no o ne lives in a safety zo ne. No watching, no motivat ion to watch. But in watchin g it we return to it, partially. This—this plural form of promises in the wild weeds . . . 29 white sand gate Pool tables face the deformed statues, no body— Giant fishing nets hang on the broken walls, nobo dy— Bicycles are locked to the pillars, no
