The land-once pulled tight across

The Humdrum Epicurean

The land-once pulled tight across

Now tarries on descent

The canyons, craters, the crust is crowned

Magma still pulses the deep


Rapid to myters

stall the keyboard

soaked in tequila and gin.


Dried upon the sides of a foldable chair


The sheets of an army boy’s queen


A world of grief annulled

If Oedipus stopped

To shake hands at the crossroads

The Humdrum Epicurean

To any other eye upon the hill

Their flight entwined and ended

Helixed, then hidden in the upper limbs


The banging on the door used to punctuate the oscillations

“One, two, left, right, swerve left, spin right, left swing, right, leave. left.”


Torn wings of scale weighed in at just 20 seconds.

1200 days to drown out the drums.

To forget how a monarch and a swallowtail dance.
