Three Poems by Vernon Frazer

Moving in Place

filtered viscera
plasters enamel, content

to gorge a viral release
no impediment transfer
rebuttal shakers aching

panel music attuned to ambience


tirades continue
to trace their wilting terrain

steamed monkeys laugh
carnival blenders suture
wheezing calliope tones

dreamed remnants linger
plain as the weary circles

the camera band's venting reversal


intense denomination states
adjunct filtration turns plural
to virile orgy button sensors

a mural tilts
its panorama's placental souvenir

riding the night train home

Loyalists to the Last Note

nearer than zygote paddle climbers
the roaring hinge impairs a daring
influx ambit where crucible rings blare
their needy contraband declamations
spewed handily across the shards
that automat reclaimers declassify
to nostalgia on a remnant platter
no lard left rye untimed in passage
coursing the rounded bottom's incline
more daring barter engrams imbue
tectonic assembly parts with castigated
billfold regrets under protocol sweepers
forage secretly to blend blue necessity
wherever the aftermath can precede
its followers declare nugatory metrics
to balance the sealant breathing chart
before natal basket scenes breed trivial
gambit maneuvers turn a practical left
no reentry button to declare proscenium
as a state of memoir archly reposed
however inclined its posturing suite
rattling conjunctive forbear masks
where blather seeks recrimination
to play rollover deployment decisive
scuttlebutt amenities transfer storage
harbor implication's unfelt impresario
leathered down a hunker bangle left
studded as a misery cure-all vantage
foretold in cadmium-bearing cordons
no lucite drip as a normal panacea
feels stain of deadly numerical tape
strapping razor thoughts to parable
ingenuity blankets covering headlong
furlough bangers grounded to varnish
occluding emporium dividends cast
filtered reverends among the desert fish
sequined crooners flashing velvet fins
a sordid allotment of celebrity remnants
left charitable pauses for a new breath
among the actuaries of asphyxiation
tabled to recourse their numeric flow
reversing the tidal cliff encumbering
brackets that parable the noumenal
before padlock enforcers crack coded
doormen padlocked to security desks
with an anomic glaze turned morbid
fruitful eyes viewed the pantry scrotum
where insignia flourish under zip-locker
warranties left unsealed before drawn
for dueling armada sleepers brewing
coffee blaze under a yard burner's meat
crackling to nourish the clot lent to mend
abbreviation settings wryly noted grieving
methodology has its own weaving protocol
less mentioned when redemption climbs
terminal paints card evaporating sunsets
no prophecy left occluded or serpentine
moorings withheld at the morality queue
now playing under their sturgeon files
nominal filters improve scenic flourish
gestures mentors invent for patent control
claimed another what was goes unmade
to fulfillment teamsters dream issue left
huffing under the weight of concrete
where abstractions absorbed moisture
conceptual as lost data files intended
amphibian repair as a sustenance favor
impounded surreal statue vipers in drag
and bender mentors leading kettle patrol
for safekeeping lock crackers milked dry
no tears to mend with new future chants
or the tympanic membrane resolutions
clinging to the last boil of bursting memory
the mystery birthers with origins unknown
charge template violations against embargo
fading luxury suites where the marker meets
deadened horizons fading their last pastel
when a largo searches for its missing key

Forgotten Groundling
