HALOED MOURNERS
Amsterdam curlicue of the rocks uptop the isolated
quenching penchant mean mountain of slickness enliv-
ening the house all alone on a meal pool sharks trick,
playing tricks like that, then met again the lack of
matches, not what I see not meaning it pool cue of the 
before guard, I closed the window for you but now that
you're gone & so on, a runner-jogger, so there is life,
I'll make you a bet on alert mountain top sentient in-
candescent present absent mean moon of no night I take
that back, I dont know who's side are you are you on,
sink retrenching atavistic pores of yore the stuck back
moons sucking emotions like ships for sails and all
that entails, leave alone one leave alone two, munifi-
cent but minus the polis that is that thought or two
you who change reminded with each light as sinking bat-
tered orb raucous filament of lean times day absent-mind-
edly passes for sweets what is a roadster in red and yes
on the road, not back yet not back two you might sing
amen again but syntax is the fool I was for mentioning
alert alack the unworked-on nature's paydays that's a
mean one two let nobody in on this space awhile to make
to lean by that rock he said so in the song and then notice
that one's impetus is to lean forward humanly toward the
walking to a or no destination by math of prefiguring what
had once been bleaker sensed pleasures in the surviving
ones old as they are it takes no time so much time to
lead in, the woman stronger she feared for her life the
determined twosome she had reason to think he might but
then the one you weakly seek always will punching out
whores among the Dutch queens or gamely declining the
unordered wood, well he wasnt like that anyway & back or
not more & more.
