Vernon Frazer, Selected Work


Schatten, the Cleared Prophet, image by Daniel Y. Harris




Clearing the Prophets


addition lavatories
the envoys headwind listeners

     use layabouts
     for skillful threesomes
             to
               vein roach
               three-hour louvres

nonstop hormone 
                             garbled
                                         a poet of nag

                    *

deleted raconteurs
draw turnaround dissonance

                             epitaph music
          the gripe line and gala
                         raucous creation palate
      ensues
under whetted        credit clearings
                    itinerary
                         in forward

to the twined
tingle lions of hearse 

                    turnaround sighting
                    rusty theology impurities

                                  bursting dry volcanos



Harboring at the Aquarium


the vertical bedtime topic
learned vortexes deleted 
chaotic mongrel clamber

               central to femurs eloping

          casualty:
                         rival graphic
                      past and against

                                catamaran dating

vegan nonchalance silences lingo tornados

                       *

a kaleidoscope of shake 
specifically the unquestioned sham 
when importance gulps
                   the plastic hornet ensemble

     to thrill               firecracker
     mutiny               monastery

               epicenters
                                in arterial use

         rivet past roastings
         against central postbag sop
         the tincture
                            sidetracks the elks

                 to backdrop ignoramus squadrons

                          *

crease, not ensemble, plaque
on nonstop horn 
                         molar galleon castings
     slotted
    nonstop                turnarounds
                        at
  ensemble                  pressed

    insignia     daub      legation

         using central moves

                      skillful leviathans would devise


Pointing Out


mayhem cuticles
dig to the deepest inch 
                    of moon
     receive
                 orbital
                              facing

     an iceberg epithet
     catching its quandary

before
            mirror whips
            slash the back of reflection

to a half-light phrase 

    upturned
                   for lacking
                                    emphasis
                          or
                              brightness

            without a shadow finger attached
