Fn around with fibs*

An essential(?) sequential poem collection

I
am
being
and seeing
and delivering
in the ether of existence



Do
you
wonder,
as I do,
why we must argue
’til our faces rue their blue hues?



As
I
write right
now these words
borrowed from ages
appear in novel arrangements



Da
Da
Vinci
readymade
L.H.O.O.Q.
re-faced a jocund reverie



What’s
with
the old
cold-hearted
gold-plated hatred
from those who sold the world away?



Half-
turn
staircase
circuits are
switchback toe tap paths
of infinite step ups and downs



Re-
think
re: ‘can’t’
as a ‘won’t’
wrapped in cast plaster
or straight jacket-tied attitudes



Why
lie
when you
could get by
with fine lines that leave
a reliable lineage?
