Hurt Proximity

Domains of Ecclesiastes & Principia Mathematica
belted ox headway; thorn prickle. Mutox.

Dustward orientation,
little pills of solid matter;
dissolved in the wash of your sentence.

I can keep
your lashes
long. To drown
out any relativistic
& arduous task
involving parallel
lines & perpendicularities.

Where oceans depend on
sulphuric acid, mutable transistor
radio parts bent backward
in the flood of light; dawn–

Dreadful
dawn.
