Hello

-    summers, black evanescences,
mad dog, it’s barking at itself, it’s a
mad dog –
-    touch a dark stone, touch
a deep stone, warmly, look,
tens of mere eyes
get bloodshot –
-    mad-dog, it’s a –
more and more and more and more and more
your water laves, soft rain’s water laves
the summer, still laves, still raves,
howls to many moons, mad dog –
-    out of indefinable grass
an indefinable snout arises,
and silence to the lake, falls,
falls apart - - -
-    you do not doubt, you endure,
there are more things on earth,
many things, every thing,
you sink as you heave and you
heave as you breathe
yourself, you don’t
have to slush through a dark stone,
wade in the dark stone,
tread through, dark, dark, you know,
you have seen the stone, you have
seen eventide, seen
how –
-    how dust kills the mindless, how
dust slays the spiritless-mindless, softly
sea-sky-shy, zombie-shoelace-still gets
softly invisible, more green
lamp, burning a hole into twilight,
white are the aprons and
black are your memories, lampscarlike, green,
a thousand carriages, small, huge,
beside you, above you, nose, slender,
dead, split, three –
-    and you don’t have to swallow, down, alongside,
don’t have to fetch a new darkness, nor
swallow, huge, huge, multilackist,
ruptured, white are those raspberries, nasties,
windflowers hover, dusk doesn’t see,
that, with a drum, with a trumpet,
walking the rapids, green, as it is, lamp,
lamp, swallowing stones, swallohalloweeng stones,
don’t have to,
nor dust, nor rain, nor mud, but mud
is stikk, is stikk, wrestle, patter
down, bold blood, sucking sand, find a dog,
two, three, it’s ostensible, evening, pump,
pump and hooray, kick-poker sunsets,
whisky, whistler, woe and warlord,
stop it, shithead, sesame,
adam, grieve, flash in a motor, amalgam,
how sound, let it fool, stoopid,
waterfall flaunt, trout, idiot wordsprout,
a late inmate, sitting on the ground, sward, heartsore,
heartsore involuntarily pulsating as a fine lash,
stiff peg, stiff peg, northwestern bedbug,
hopeless black surface of stone, soot
and dust, your cheek pulsates involuntarily,
powdered by ages, a freak
that has spread –
-    read in the dead world as you’ll be
and motor, and flash, and lymph
concealed in your teeth, its crown,
its leaves and its velvet fallen anap,
velvet, dusty, down, ripped, but
more and more and more it cracks! cracks!
Your shitty heart down over hay,
So what, lootfoot, bootie, mad-dog,
what’s waiting, violin, my soul and my bison,
wheels and white lightning, motor and mermaids of mud,
darkness shall have you, and dickens,
into stone your sister and mother, and mother
of mothers and son, your coppery shadow
is fake, your perception is open and door,
crapping out liberty, fruit of faith, eternal
and precious gift, you see, coupled
with green lamps, and wheels, out
on the crossroads, a gift to the eagle,
teaching a layman, a church with three towers
is level with sin, hitting the levee with beavers,
heart on a hot stone, teeth in a tongue,
tongue out in open, behind the stars
a siskin is simmering, cagey, electricity-torn,
platoon, bumpering, end, decayed, dissoluted,
in vain, ee home is ee cantle, sausage sauce
and farmhouse, midnight aspic flood
embraces the republic of estonia up to its
breasts, an alien god clinks glasses with the premier’s niece,
nobody’s crying, nobody’s drying sacred tears off some
fanciful fangs stuck deep
into windpipes of clouds, a noble hare
of continuity wakes up, suslik wakes up,
the masquarade proceeds,
unmask! unmask! they a-sound and others,
your huge, deep, green, mad, soft whittle
hits the kirtchen curtains right under
the shoulder-blade and booing blood shreds,
mad dog, dashes, wailing, cheekbones,
known as a tiny bullet, known, a man was killed,
known, no man was killed, I challenge, come up to the
hillbank, so I call for a murder,
I know, dirty, you, me,
down the torrent, down the sewers,
down the rapids, head o’er heels
to one sphere of steel with a bren gun
full to its throat, shutting it shit-tight,
shutting all eyes and pressing the trigger upright!
