Capilla del Junius Paeniteo

holding out
is my arsenal
of invaded lands
awaiting baptism,
whether the hurricane bears your name
or simply
a cupola
of any vowel pronounced
with pride,
with enough
substance in the hiss,
irritates my brows...
since
neither lunar prophecy warned me
of how these monuments
would sink
in the absence of you,
in the pertinence of preoperational octagonal towers
permeating all sorts of
hallucinated forgetfulness.

'place in me the agony you bear'

nothing
more

nothing worthy of
silhouettes
and stained-glass tears;
and
with the lancets
trace de stijl crop circles
on your legs
so that i can land
- which remnants
i can fry
in promiscuous oil that
splatters the mosaics.
because during
the harvest of this
horizontal emphasis,
when my conscience
speaks in tongues,
i only listen to the baritones;
my extended metaphors turn into
scalded
sighs of incense…
scratching the glands of my atria.

the gryphons
eating snow on the altars.

the flying objects
gambling light in the corners of the east.




such speakeasy.
such fermented wine.
