"I'm alert," says writing "I'm ever alert"
BUT IS IT?
Solitude as fortitude—typing rhythm—k'ee k'ee k'ee k'ee k'ee k'ee
Radiance gullible, ghostly face—k'ee k'ee k'ee ("blink! blink!")
thrivehellcat skipping breaths
k'ee k'ee k'ee k'ee
to flail at
IMP. CONQ. LIBER. HAPP. HUM.
—negative, Plucked Eagle
nor that ending
Detect lint-size trace
Godzilla portion chunk
"E" "Q" "U"
Commmes of a sudden—of a must've but didn't notice can't remember some sort of trick, shrill
ring in the ears ceaseless throbbing deeessstiny
Somnambulist at the caboose controls
on the horn to central
"Can we get some traction here?"
The last four years slipping away merrily
Gorge, has it been waiting there all along?
Administration, are we auto-administrative
tussled psyche, cramped
(the edges are of solid steel)
I squak vexed
"I'm alert" says writing
barreling down the slope
By smitten & bitten
By special appearance
By open invite
About to close
How script feels about it
How I feels about it
The brilliant beryllium blue
(little hymnal sketched out on the front cart just before blinking)
O pirated time
O sovereign allowance
O dukedom of dorky moments
O lunk-around of liminal spaces
Dump the conceit.
(figured that it dimply smiled to gesture)
a brittle belief in.
Commmes of a sudden—of a must've but didn't notice can't remember some sort of trick,
shrill ring in the ears ceaseless throbbing deeessstiny.

Commmes of a sudden—of a must've / but didn't notice (can't remember (some sort of
trick)), shrill ring in the ears (ceaseless) throbbing deeessstiny.
‹blink› ‹always› ‹I do first›
‹trick› ‹in the full tricked› ‹sense of the word›
Commmes—of a sudden—of a must've—but didn't notice—can't remember—some sort of trick—shrill—ring—in
