Semi-Portrait of the Ground
by Rosaire Appel
Air-trust over yellow, blocked flats. Proud refuge lick-down white oven foam, the world eating wisdom, portholes to escape. Eligible images slide. Suggestive tugs, shipping tugs overseas - dunghills, fox-holes, mist gray, Bristol. Stench of the twenty twenty. Stench in a bounce off the lip. Throw dirt again hollow affair kicks in, a thousand - ten thousand - corpuses, laughter.
Thick whispers of pull in the curtain.
Thick whispers of you from a doorway, alone - with expensive, well-meaning convulsions. Whispers of holy, bribe-trick blue, saying animal Freudian common material desirable almonds dipped in volcanoes. But a miracle cuts the animal out, huge on his back finally snow. Blue snow slicking down complete loss. Post-industrial children dear love pissed off in front of a bed and because of a nightmare, dug out of a blanket blue snow.
Sly pastor pale sleepy belle grande. The grace of sad alders because of sad alders, because in a bracket jacket you know them, quite loosely but safe-keeping housekeeping species. Their gloom: small mechanical blankets fingered, their touch: blue serpentine crusted affection - in the mouth perhaps only steel water.
Adoring what is steel water correctly lace layer the obvious will be steel water. Memory lines open sea. Echoes of blues follow the body's ever easy eye codes in. Flings open fat eager lace. Bundled by brooding of gentle in shelter, to shadow one more middy shelter. Hard fleshing cold rips the shelter, sunlight, through perfectly air force and white heat perspective, through smooth collective reality. Local participation reality, gossip, erotic anonymous cheer.
Sample, x-sample, second-hand erotic. Odors slip in through second-hand grit, burnt petunias and cloth, ironcurtains. Purse, curse, trunks, iron curtains - religious pedestrians, loud outdoor parties - residential sentiments, beloved security - and a pair doing up on the shine. Bright pair seen before scene again. Mute states of pure and priceless in particular mood in a vast pool of time.
Coveted material interjections hum. Long held convictions original decay. Dreamy narratives foam negatives, elucidate, relatives overhead peace and security. Watertight swagger, print lightly loose delta, easing teasing guests. Crawling along with the boys. Bright pair seen before scene again on the blackboard - bloodletting asterisk code kicks in. Public pictures seductive thanks, authority any enemy kicks in. Blank forms and oldrecords overlap. Half-spoken half-sung blue water cuts in, self-fencing authorities intermingle. Silence: deep,impressive, suggestive - inaudible target of invisible daughter.
Bloodletting glows over pink lines. Virgin-tested bloodletting exercise crime after Christ, high steel carnal hope. Held deeply in grooves that history supplies, for boy in one boy as in great global body. With American funding for leisure that body, fresh-air revival intelligence pressure, whistling providers, clean dirt. Clean plastic school solo acts of interview, trading in lime-light for maybe, just maybe, flock joy and despair, music duels.
But speed on doubt sonic drifting shots gamble, shoots joy heavy objects of wonder. Shoots men crawling hillsides, brain-digging lawn tunnel, slips rally orally rally really pictures easy forward. To celebrate nothing pill anything won against everything nothing, move on.
Raise yourself up to another cross-reference, jittery, time-tricking lapse of approval. Rude jittery double-updiamond performance, masculine passion with medical candor. Ripe green punctuation, pinpricks. Polite forms. Burnt-alder conclusive evidence. Cross-melody offers fly-high single heat, stroked at the hatch-hatch and flattered. With union supplies and vogue seeds, falcon gloves - crib gold inside speaker presiding.
Long corrupt curves mood out.
Metropolitan hungers rerun captions, simple disposable aesthetics stalk profit, mute time-inward clips for the mind. An airless troubled airless history viewed from inside disconnects. Between whatever marks the ends - illegal math of tense moments and lust - mouth to mouth and head mother to mother.
Midnight walk up key survival, glazing midsize alphabet thunder. Homicide strips at the early rush ink, trap juveniles treading the border. For anyone searching live evidence, tulips, surges in killing through crystal glassroots. Free squalid family gloves off, gloves on, prick in the self-speaking eye, right or wrong. The legible order of lenient fun screws history back to the gun.
You choose a glass you use a glove, servile excuses for excesses follow. Interlocked flats and active fist gatherings, soap that floats warm in good water. Now address extraordinary water. Address tax-credit welfare-water, steal indigo forgeries, thirst. Trust. Monitor river-side monitor stalls, with monopoly paper exams. With financial monopoly attachments for jocks that the spectacle which is successful is yours: your survival in spectacle foam.
Other fears snap off the old figure clarity, computerized churches and rival soup kitchens. In cycles in focus with maternal memory, gadgets clean gripping raw pink. More gadgets than one can apply to a surface buy time in fad luxury light. Freezing domestic contradictions. Squeezing teenage spike-thrill hope. While bland snowflake hours spin thinner history, jam patterns and lacy discouragement. A popular rabbit plural army, old score for your indigo thigh against thigh.
Twisted affairs collapse to moods of now we are new and open confetti. Now we are family, bursting irises,linked in smooth saddle forgiveness.
Rotations of death disclose life how it breathes, sleek open fist witting systems sprout blindly - tight control stations design us. We are willing, we are graves and towers, twitching petty circuit flowers in indigo moral perspective. Indigo charged as sensational material carried cuff-down as a weapon. Sacred of mass with a deal and clean silk, scattered wars, one solar or two rising doves.
