From Where Its Roots Run

"we sample from the shelves
tore a page out of this chapter
deface the essays in the book that you're reading
we are the leeches that stop the bleeding

deficit attention program

by any means necessary
blare sirens to the library
whisper instructions to the book-wormed glossary

is it heavier than air - tell us, is the black box lying?

aeronautics hacked

the spine of paragraphs

prepare to indent, a coma that read-
floating in a soundproof costume
here comes the monolith
brass knuckles for the hissy fit

an abbreviation for the landing of fleets
incoming


position the stitches - like miles of torpedoes

permission was hinted
lungs that hollered in a sleeper hold

is it heavier than air - am i supposed to die alone?"
