What Saw

art is large floors
brought to crowds and workshops

three exhibits attract films   seasons
art along influences

it was heart orphanage

yet another canonization

calamity of downtown royalty

survivor house

   and you must walk through the showroom
   grew up to be a new york journalist
   thousands of immigrants arrived
   i see their eyes   through eyes of my own
   the long deep line at the edge of the sea
   a young divorcee called civic duty

The Ancient Wine After Forty

being representative of than you expect
the flying pig demons?
the mouth goes middle age
overpassed     its roar off the top of your head
where they raise     on your back

animal are you?

have to do with alcohol
have to do with sex
over all the twirl

for paranoids
romance is stolen by young couples
whom you subliminally hate

the mouth left of thanatos
someone marked taking knit flags
someone else
love built as strong as
nation     at will
will probably never find that house

are sold with streets
imagining a curly forked tail
growing off your ass

at will     not ghosts
in love with forked and twirling streets
will find     yes     will find
that house
