taxation // the absolute failure

08May08


lawn boy knows
damn well

taxation

the absolute failure
of representation

the sickness inside
the reflection of and upon

distant
horrors

someone keeps coming home
dismembered or dead

but
it is not only that

that distance finds a place
in the digestive

tract
lawn boy knows

within it

gut strung and attuned
to the death and displacement of million plus

this distance of words
for which no simile can ever suffice
