a story

by

or to go to the end of the line

where you talk about manuals

 

and present tense, say that

 

afterparties and quarterback mondays

the whole thing happens thrillingly

 

as required. tuesdays

(i don’t say there are never irrelevancies)

 

and when i say perfect of course

i mean flawed in the most perfect

 

you know, some kind of

progression was going to

 

fully-formed, someday, the story

that would make it all

 

the trace of a trace, something done

some time, or just a suggestion

 

to be bald-faced is to lie

 

in a landscape, with a small change in it

or a small change in attitude towards

 

it. take solace in the fact that i fall in

the second category (thunk but no

 

worries) rather than no

 

if you catch yourself doubled over

the ducks past a post

 

will lead to a miraculous set piece

crouching in a shopping trolley

 

look baby i’m double parked
