And How Bright

[move back]
shattered my brain
[come close] opened my brain
searched for resources to assemble the heart
found a whale inside harpooned and plunged
[break in] [don’t move] I see the sun feast I eat
with every tooth becoming a pill becoming a landslide
                   my mouth pleads with itself I beg for carnage ─ undone
with every day becoming more of a compressed 0 ─ as the detail as the vivid
sheen ripples goneward─ [move in] I gesture to air, I dance in the panorama
[spin] set loose like a string unwrapped everything so far has a lot to do with
splitting and the cracks mean surely and I anticipate the other whale’s blood clot

apartment to the sidewalk I see fractal twentyfold the trees shoot their
commands in rose quartz nebula I drink the well calmly
                  I split momentary disarray
                  shattered my brain

                  and the sound of a movie
                  from yesterday’s absence
                  [dancehall] I raise myself
                  off the carpet and into
                  the splash of light
                  pouring through the
                  window pane
                  how lovely and
                   to sense this
                   cut to feel the
                   blade of
