Ars Poetica, a cento


First dues for the body poetica:
undo the lettuce leaves from their heart,
fantasies or memories
and miles into never minds.
Picking them up, I

reach out and cradle your
cityscapes and biospheres,
emitting profane levels of profundity.
I don’t want to be
witlessly ignorant of my mood (but)

I am a poet, therefore I lie
by the blood of man, knowing
the blank page denied
my trip to the moon; it’s been postponed.
It’s hard work keeping spirits up.

I send prayers into the evening sky,
some more valuable than others.
Eyes closed, I fall back
in the soft murmur of foliage
over the edge, drowning.
