Marcabre Dance For A Dead Mouse, After Robert Burns and Theodore Roethke

.
O little mouse, why dost thou cry
While merry stars laugh in the sky? - Sarojini Naidu


Wee brisket.
Gray fodder.
Thou art today tossed down
fat with grain.
Teeth sing to poison,
paws dance behind walls
taunting cat's tongue and
my impatient demand
'gainst thy nightly
gnaw gnaw
gnawing

Now brace for leaves.
Tossed from back porch to woods
Thy ballet's done, bitter fey.
Sun's up, swan song,

The cat play thee for a meal!
Wheel the poison again!
Swell fellow's passed on!
Reel, poison, reel!

Memory Torques - Opening City

memory

torques

into soft

teas


June

steeps

turns

steaming

said window

(and torsos)

said prints

views obscured

of nothing

in particular

or special,

but

troubles,

troubles only

of passing birds

enamored-of

(their lighter
bones)


or


are they

cloud and shadow,

merely the steep

sun declining ashen

into the Jersey side?

Midnight In Dostoevsky

"Alyosha, I shall set off from here...loving
with one's inside, with one's stomach..."

Is it
feathers'
dawn shoe

through
which
blood
casings
mourn

the Orange
Moon?

Alyosha
the old
animal heat
turns in on
itself

burns
beneath skin

the bone bruise
fuses out
against what
yearning once
meant in
wetlands
between

navel

moon

corona

pubis
...

...
belly laugh

the gut punch
and rabbit

that moment
of consent
entwined
with bridges
rooftops
orange sky
concrete

asphalt
and assholes
a cigarette
each hand a
bottle of gin

a back pocket
search for
quinine the
brine of men

the run-on
trousers limp
the cobbled
street where
a spring
silvers
beneath

navel

moon

corona

pubis
...

...
"If, after your kiss, he goes away
untouched, mocking at you, do not
let that be a stumbling-block to you.
It shows his time has not yet come"
...

...
the sign
the halt
the lame
the blind

cane
wheel
crutch
theology

murderous
instruments
all
...

...
much the
Monk who
falls for
(One) love
every night
from the
belfry

smells
of pitch 1st
avenue smells
of singed
hair

the humming
boy hums
pokes bits
of scalp on
the walk

his small
white thumbs
alone touch
the white
lattice kiosk

sells the
Stranger's
face again

navel

moon

corona

pubis
...

...
"The centripetal force on our planet is still
fearfully strong...I know I shall fall on the
ground and kiss those stones"
...

**Quotation marked passages are from
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky

  152.     

Mimimus Explains The Pluribus Unum Thing

And now come poets each century heavier than
before, heavier than the other few, this new one, too,
only bards, a real few, to bar, board up the big gaps,
O great light gaping torn, oft thee sung,
slung over shoulder, hauled, the burden,
o the load
it is now become.
 
Warren Falcon
