You send me your poems,
I’ll send you mine.

Things tend to awaken
even through random communication

Let us suddenly
proclaim spring. And jeer

at the others,
all the others.

I will send a picture too
if you will send me one of you.

  1. ea says:

    I’ve been trying to write a poem all day called “Mock Orange,” Bob, I promise.

    Did you see that shit about ossified Olson? Well?

  2. Travis Mateer says:

    we must start communicating. The Channels have been professionally rewired. Spooks haunt the circuits, cables, air. A poet who engages the shadow is darker for doing so. And closer to revealing how a lasting light will one day bring them down for good. Open your eyes.
