I am a ventriloquist to you:
Lick my saw-toothed edges
So I may blur into the soft focus
Of the image behind.
Piled dirty petri dishes, transparent
As the word “experiment''
My head is like a sieve
In that it sounds like the flow of a mouthful
Of grain, and has gaps through which
I absorb ideas.

Weed bubbles murky, yet assumes
The gentle ripple of stained glass
Green as sunlight in an artificial block of water;
That one is clear, but the tall cylinder
Contains a liquor faintly blue
As a washed-out September dawn.

Do any human beings ever realize life when they live it- every, every minute?
...the saints and the poets, maybe they do some.

Amazing no one had commented on this. You bring forth Plath and Dickinson and make it all your own. I'm personally surprised this isn't in the mag.
