(From Decomposure's "Eating Chicken" - out 2012)

i knew all along...

readymade on a paper plate (food for thought is a good trade)
where neutral is a smiley face (or your face will freeze that way)
with punctured heel, square under weight (swallowed by the creeping blank)
old boss out, new boss is the same (sun may rise but will not stay)

saucers drawn back like a slingshot
past the silver trails across the sidewalk
their teal pits divided down to blue and green and white and black

eyes up eyes up eyes up
no hardening shapes to be plucked from their dance
above my wet footsteps
i'm gone i'm gone i'm gone, losing a page
pupils rummaging around in the back for green pens
careful careful careful i cut out my heart
inflating it with my last breath to set it free
i fall i fall i fall
it floats in the night
climbing soft, growing a padded halo named color
scatting lone to beat back barbecue forks
and knifeblade clouds storing black snow
slow rising under a phantom bridge
pumping please let me cry, i need to cry, just let me cry
but instead sneezes and dies
and at the end of the block a truck hits it

* * *

outside my naked hopes grew cold
so i kept them warm at home
and went to work to buy them clothes
