Cinq poemes

icarus shunt








a horse




sap too-sad

a pardoned arrow


egg salt announcement

a gourmet ostrich


pork sadness


tree think


the world confesses


sand talk


power huh


the looming breadwalk

the sanctioned sanka


a stomach of birds



bill burt


this is my grain, ratso!

I blame the grapes
