Abraham Smith 
Rabbit, Sing Us In

to vermillion hats marooned

upon sentimental nails

scabbed some with seafoam

 

slouching loom

woofing cinnamon

churn that haunch crank 

 

and fresh outsetless owlet swings

low loaf old toe mouth

cartoon cat bread neck

 

like this it's guillotine's

brethren light loot out 

one wind mechanical

 

why joist bird o save me

suture stretch pants pleat

egress bucket galleon

 

trueler taller there are none

ladder ladder loves the dust

til it don't then up

 

now stooping

is it

kingly

 

else or i am goner

one gaghand down

wide-eyed wisdom

 

o joist bird alloy

o sky salve slather

yr long and yr lovely

 

such fernal gill throat furniture

undulant and verdant 

talk frogstack neck trill

 

talk turtle winter pond

muck stack talk guinness

pinted ostrich throat cartoon

 

cept it's frog frog frog frog

fair will dark tree hotel

free crane neck spindle

 

let's up gas the couch that

let's going and yesterday

to some florida of moon now

 

where the living and dead play

whittled punctate

legbone golfclub whistles

 

talk mad cloudages

veined in heart attack light

rhythm of shit country tequila dreams

 

pup on shine stone

suture bird ladder up

red the head red the eyes

 

by way of the blood dream

by terrible shake this infant stillness

it's hotter than hiway milk mama

 

where if only we are good

we'll one day leashless be

maddeners of sea

 

waves salt cake waves

rabbit upon rabbits

chaos of leap feet

 

and footnoted hearts

drum solo freak freaks

gravid dust unsettling

 

why soon enough sleeps

yes soon enough sleeps

mmm soon enough sleeps 

 

calls to question

why don't frame shudder

hangover clotheshanger that

 

light frozen conductored

into something like crane

dippin insides lured

 

insidious car lock coaxed

atom bomb erect out

from the eyeholes of a dead man

 

unpopular in his demise

as he was in his whiffling life

ash to grass and may we be

moved through mannered

mulctless guts of ungulates  

not some two stroke blare rooster no

 

struttin like stone

comet shit freak for a home

and the steamin cold shoulder after

 

ambulatory bivalve hopechest

from above any straight

line unshields its curl

 

its sadness grain

old shill shoal win-

some and cranes

 

impossible that one

lifting as they do the cornbread

and the county grinner too

 

gonna plant your chaff in awkward litmus

talk alphabet of socks now

frozen to weapon 

 

on the line i have in mind

personal vintage aerial ladders

and to step 'em down nothing

 

but my eyes and fingers

the ones upon the others

the heart walks shy shed

 

the frog fly swallow swallow

the drunk pray burp only 

the egg pulse cry beak

 

the diaphanous dark sick of it 

so crane the bucket up

from the heartless well

 

so prime a stately monster mind for real 

soda water precious water freshest water

you yes the pulse mulled

 

you can of beets on the dash heart you

cardboard pizza by grease bled thru on the dash heart you

energy slump silo dick on the dash heart you

 

secondhand dashboard

dead gum blue

carry one cracked in the backseat

just in case sweet must

cathect an up ahead 

looking back that's

 

pure peril 

passion play 

endless white blood delight

 

annulled in

salt's empathic charge

can't seem cease

 

juicing fossils

in the neck twist of all

i did not know how say

 

these willowy risers say

this fig leaf tent vinyl sky

breakable when

 

beyond is for life

how arrow hollow bone

borne upon regret's exhale

 

back when we

barely knew rudder from plough

or how to throat sun

 

bunch of thistledown blown

against wall's

faithful fails

 

for wings unfurled 

i find i stow

where skulls are

 

honey is

wrist and

ransom deep
