Speedy Syntax

the crescent curve of his back
when flame touches skin
stitching sinners
he peeled back the sheet and slid his hands

with the speedy syntax of channel surfing.

carrying the bag
he will draw two knives, and one lettuce leaf
visitors will bring food and gifts

and who, for all his troubles, failed
each line along his brow.

tree snake coiled itself like a stowed garden hose around
rectangular down pipes supplied with fitting instructions
coffee slurped smoke in-out the salt rising to the surface
flecks of leaf and breakfast smudges and wattle pollen

dusted on his writing desk

was forced to grow vegetables for soldiers
for the moulding in the starch
by a manufactured lake. It shimmers

spilling over glistening stones,
all green thought flattery by this
gazing at the decor a glass too tall
of a stereoscopic image. There's no comparison.

written on your lips
in clay? Or scratching them in polished stone?
tell me
sorry, it's conclusive
