WHIRLPOOL CONSOLATION

This is both vortex and whirlpool
the centre of human life today

When I look out it is calm
as long as there is no wind

Valve in head clear
water filter distance

Bubble choice
for joyful consolation

Resting quietly

Singing everyone else’s songs



CELESTIAL EVERCLEAR

If the stars are invisible,
how do you know they exist?

The subways are sweltering
the dogs won't stop barking

Marvel at new stories
slipped between the cracks:

Aliens so frigid that light can't
radiate in the visible spectrum
which makes their bodies glow

It's no secret that space is cold
the darkest you've ever experienced

I can never quite tell what direction

New blue galaxies burning


ZERO GRAVITY

Small community events
set up and ready for action

From the far reaches of the galaxy
to the urban technological landscape:

Electricity generated by wind
zero-propellant guidance

When was the last time
every hair on your body
stood right up on end?

A totally different vibe:
intensity of perception


APOCRYPHAL MASTERCLASS

Plans for the sky:
potions and powders to add

Sourcebook, atlas,
encyclopedia, timeline

We present three words:
incompetence and deceit

It's not a cul-de-sac
it's a conduit

Some of these stories are true


BLOWTORCH ORCHESTRA

Development of
the age-related self

Equals dedication
to organized time

Sound levels
and sound spectra

Duration understood
after signing nondisclosure

Typical post-concert fireworks

Deep trench collapse

Dark stars missing
(presumed stolen)
