"Abigail Lee’s Sunglasses" and "Startle and Flinch"

Abigail Lee’s Sunglasses


Your gut can’t know

if the literature is correct




                  a spring flower on the floor

              means any impression counts

                         cyborg, no cyborg



Startle and Flinch


Lust drive

startle, flinch, fear

the bifurcating exits

split curbs and sky between

the silhouetted highway sequencing


the nude bathers

the clay of skin

the sand

the stench of bodies

pocks of starch in shadow

the uncorrupted intention


Fetal shape the ocean

bowl of passion

and unformed substance

have mercy on me

have mercy on me, devil

devil of flesh


              you begin as an O

and all you want is a quiver
