Salmon Head

Whiff & purges this salt
becoming a late pink
or void having depth
of a soft blue  ──

                                   from where

to peel from this waxen bed
all scales have turned upward
          & away   

this is God's death
& breathing
is not likely.

[[...of an exiting Neruda ]].

    a niche in the pavement,
black hat head-spun southward

in glassy trill, the din of clock &
        springtime sprig snap
or that of an existing wound--
            intimate passerby:

     a shadow musician
accustomed to striking bow
along alley corridors

with hands & heart you
      greet him
   expecting a great
 a spectacle

     you’ve only once

from a bird, dusky nightingale,
     who sung mournfully
     through the salty spray
              of the sea.

The Man Who Breaks Dimensions...

in his mouth,

            gives the sun its violent luster      ──He who

marks  the blistered streets of December

in his eyes                        &   births the new snow's

    wonderment                   ──He  stirs up windows,   dusty floors,

     calls to bones a grip of    

                    voiceless somewhere    ──He evaporates

on weathered skin,                  calls to it a sheath

                                                     of longing



                         & now it is Summer again
                    & now the navel yearns for spit

             He reflects the New World with corruptless eyes
      & moves onto a canvas                made of moonlit starvation

 believing this desolate island   

                                                                   is a smaller town

         much smaller than pores

                                         or his lover's hands

full of gravity,     little grains

                   wrapped  in womb

                                      of finality

from Breaking the Bird's Beak Hymen

                  Every night
                                a pooling of blood
         or exsanguinated
      the spilt seed

                         by morning
       how clean            the sparrow
                   divine its feathers
               a child
