I'm posting from my *new* and fabulous office at school today, which is wierd. I needed a break from syllabus writing, so here's the latest fruit of my collaborative project with scott. He has a great poem up as well!
inspired by Roy Lichtenstein's "Brushstroke with Spatter," 1966
You blur into drear, stigmatism focus on fake drips,
on fake intermittent light smear, on callous
glamour smear, shaken hand in bountiful sinews.
You give me a filled carcass, a shaken boxcar, a forest guile,
a hidden smile, more guile for the long trip through briar bayou.
Blue briars into you, slick martini eyes. The drag,
the influence of drag, the martini gleam effluvium taking over
squirrel-tooth effluvium. Come in bold, balance, entitled
rails we ride on, entitled something it wears, killer sari button
on the move down. So sorry for your hands.
