Denim wet from Rockaway, fireflies in my gut

Ripped and bleached, paint-splattered 

Sawdust from ’94

Graffiti scrawls wall to floor


Swimming in sounds of metal 

Clanging metal clanging steel

Arthur Russel's electric cello, distorted

Perfect crunch, orange peel


Incomplete, disintegrating, even as it forms

Half-awake as dreams take place

Bones made up of tingles

Vibration in empty space
