Over An Echo

The voice-centred jets were about comet homework;
they are preparing for comment, like about a comet,
the period seen around their back.

Time's devices watched the unnamed speaker,
in clockwork outbursts, echo, like about
repeatability to parts and origins, or rotation of

synchronised cameras around similar connected television.
The voice anticipated the taking (from the next voice),
yet from time's thermostat, surprise flows like weather.

Layered Geographic Pictures

in a foreign country
tiny noodles lick an iceberg
with uncommon modesty

(the noodles, not the iceberg, which its admirers call
"The Greenstone," made famous by "School of Rock"
and other films about geologists)

cone-shaped microbes ricocheted from the seafloor
sampling fossilized ship's food from the Titanic
in a luxury undisturbed by pop culture sediment
