Poetry


Episodes, of mouth
Matthew Johnstone

 

No one to the loosening
mouth, front reconjured
empires, of
teeth, karst
for the tropic of meat is up
wife, stay
gone stay / slim, a
reformation.
Flu, of, mouths,
poverty, gin
mist, three days taking
soundings,
veil through / itself, law of
swarms, how
must I carry your grey cloths
between the
buildings. Kept my humid
mounds
in a winter / to be made
barren,
quarter of no snare,
bump no
moonlight reaches,

 

magnified, multiplying
empire,
of teeth / in the rugs,
salt ropes / the
vague floss gnats ferociously
social, so long
as the
body is /
intricate, behind the
mouth. What
promising
fragments, not
yet tufting sun.

 

Section,
of, forecast / kisser hymns
drifted aura, silent
molar
confusions
the land fed /
uncertain
casts of uncurling glass,
bulbs
thrown the replica,
there is that.
Duplicate, hinge, carapace,

 

we ale / the skeletons loose
graffiti on the
whale, doors
thin, whose
jagged borders
brush
thin,

 

whose things, to pieces,
my history
of elevation,
let few whenever, less.
Adversaries,
white sun
ahead skewers late quarter,
facility
must've
been let yawning / adoration
of color.
Still, this, usurper / shrinking
away, still,
maybe the cores of grey
deadened,
hair, horizontal, this for
nights,
there is no change there is
being
a rearrangement,

 

spacing onto
the periphery
I woke, because
the flies in
the morning / because I cannot
cover
you this way, entrant, by
this serious curve,
thus
vacated,
image, rich
with krill

 

gradual, the middles formed
gradually, the plow
both ways
palindromic
near, dearest, my lockjaw
is not
discovered, south /
events that tower up /
tongues,
smoke in bed, a rind of
lung /
splashed up.
