CLEAVE POETICS 5&6 of 19

5.

“This is very
unprovoked thought”
—Clark Coolidge,
Postmodern Poetry:
The Talisman Interviews

          it opened—i caught it
 versions left over—over the edge
       they shifted—down the spinal cord
    all the hyphens—slouching like cats
           sniffing—soft paws on the carpet
   here in the city—craning their necks
getting a good look—thru the gate
       at the other—shape-shifter

6.

“the great
misunderstandings”
—Clark Coolidge,
Postmodern Poetry:
The Talisman Interviews

   it comes here—i don’t know how
      i say this—i’ve lost so much
planting hyphens—slanting it down
    how it grows—nobody knows
       beneath a—night sun moon
       blackness—dark at high noon
     it’s coming—undoing me
