to Posthumius Terentianus



in their silence a thieves' ergot hung 


between them and marked by the lonche 


of longinus stood in for the contraction


of a knot into diagonals and sword or spear 


sublimed it appeared wound up upon a pun 


transposing a riddle for a name whose 


sacrifice would suffice to render the buggered 


angel as a touch to invisible spaces aye a cry 


best laid in focus where inversions put the 


chorus surrogate in singular and complex 


order lo lie lay lea loo la leh but a hyphen 


or a hylephan cant breeds and a sphinx 


cant listens
