Search Throughout Time


In virus seas she
orbits sleeping coasts,
looking below

the blues, the drug-
babies and past
intrusive things.

There is a causal favourite.
An outbreak of concern; Earth
-borne and consequential.

Shown All Over


a mirror overhangs, or movies overlay,
these climbing bogs that drink the stolen earth;
it must negotiate a common target for thieves

a bolt of energy stuttering between squared pillars
translates an expanding camera language
(now just a concept that uses video cutouts)

it is probably harder to see any formula here
than to view "Rear Window" from a moving car
with massive electric fans for a screen

Start Amid Experience


15th floor amid scenes panic and confusion cause of inferno
pouring glasses of champagne fireworks from the balcony
fire alarm started going off prime location

the many desperate journeys refugees fleeing persecution
risked lives to find safety become a far better place
terrified experience decided to escape welcome the fleeing

move around and interact with the digital world
new experiences predicted to be unveiled
already-crowded space take on comes right at the start

The Augmented Chamberlain


Meet the rarefied makers of a software aware enough
to sell an island to every war, a story to every studio.
They aim to normalize holograms, such as the glass pilots

that developers polished for Communist Airlines.
I expect higher possibilities for my similar half,
to bring my half respects and experiences,

to restore my journalistic interest,
to be my cold royalty.
However, I think I see a ray of hostility.

Annual Question-Spinning


Up early each day, scrutinizing the skies.
(One by one: Stunning sky, dreary sky, intense sky,
tepid sky, generic sky, copycat sky...)

Bogus intellectual juice.
But the analogous meteor is sweeping into the constellation
of this argument like a burst of consumer fraud.

Offering pomegranate for Halloween
spells one month of every year in Canada.
Next time, get fireballs.

Injured (Like California)


Los Angeles was a chance, a retreat.
The army of cars sounded like firecrackers,
or security.

The rain somehow escaped.
The hideout was flight: the highway
a drug, a prison.

California was injured– a people debris.
The mountain was a wounded relief–
the face of thunderstorms.

Economy of Athleticism


We rest the day in coffers of long hours,
with the delirium of a Vanderbilt.
Tens of cars that drive themselves

are apparently buckling under the streets,
but even casual runners know the way.
I slip into a marathon

like I slip into a good night's sleep,
making the criminal possible;
ears and accomplishments in pursuit of a slipped-up notion.

Choking Trump Storm


Refugee weekend.
It’s frontrunner season

Maximum gambit.
It’s a 115mph crisis.
The regime’s in tears.

Gasoline central.
It’s a Florida family fight
with category-three airstrikes.

Jeremy Corbyn Bringing More


A CRUCIAL KNOCKABOUT WITHOUT
BIGOTRY – the morning news is told
that raising fears is not certain –

but seeds of discontent is certain –
jibes, disaster, attacks without
handcuffs; a teenager told

he serves an example, told
not suitable, is certain.
and so both are happy without

Rephrase "Not Lost"


I live in the middle of nowhere.
I can do nothing but wait for a train.
That's why consistency is tainted

by the formula "practice makes perfect."
If I know the shorthand,
Hell must be the pavement of direction.

If you are not traveling,
maybe I can get a ride with you.
I live in the middle of nowhere.
