in the scrolling of things, man finds man,

word laden with the present cocks the trigger

in a tongue where the syllable falters, -appoint.

the city frustrates sexual expectation,

pushes the steps and shatters the silhouettes.

 

eyes on a roundabout searching for crumbs

console themselves by carving the solitary cum

in the retina sketchbook. the flesh evaporates

from the ashes of the moment and becomes monumental:

the freed libido moulds large men out of marble.

 

in the statutory thirst of making it last,

pencils lick sheets not knowing if the abdomens,

waiting for teeth that don't ask permission,

come from the streets or longings. traces of risk.

sketches, ten versions later, take a risk:

 

hey, you, look at how you disappoint.

 

 

 

LONGING FOR SODOM

 

mutual recognitions which,

eye-to-eye, confide,

in the green imminence of the sign,

the stigma of the hardened city.

 

the turning of shoulders among censures

to what pulsates in the sex, to the longings

for Sodom, although nowadays

the traffic also grows on

the lanes contrary to the accident.

 

if in thought the figure persists,

kneecaps still scrape the floor, the skilful

tongue still licks, it's time for zoom

in shaft to abstract such a face in pixels.

 

the gridded panel on the insta-screen urges

the touch on the epidermal landscapes

until the emergence of pores

turns the water, the salt and - vague music -

the ear hears again: quiet, open.

EMBROIDERED ON FLASH

 

splendid frugal wonderment

before that which is man,

austere, forbidden musculature,

caught in the branching of the streets:

 

hunger embroidered on raw flesh.

 

on the inside of the suture, the stitch

holds – by a thread – the sentences:

come now, it's your bead-eyes.

BLOOD VESSEL

if the unexpected presence excites the passer-by

and attacks him, afraid of becoming effeminate

or feeling that which he chases after – the prey,

from writing it does not escape, poetry teaches:

male word won’t impose itself upon this language.

 

in the other, unable to unvessel desires,

unhaunt them out of the amphora, the gaze,

pounded, likes the sketch imprinted on the iris,

evanescence – avid – of mother-of-pearl,

such frame around the figure's muscles –

 

yes, four horseshoe U letters hide

male ancestry that oscillates,

trembling flesh, in the pupil, in relief,

on the verge of bleeding, broken vessel,

on a still white background (...) empty (...) fragment.
