Gralewski’s theory:

       every tumble, bruise, broken leg or arm is the price for disrupting some hidden
       order. instant punishment.

the year of eremite;
a tampered misanthrope

cuffed in contrite
withhold the purple
dribble of the prototype

how he wives me – a cudgel
there is karma; cut-lap
cavernous; stomping feet

over the black haw & zinc light
you will batten; a pattern
of impaired will

i, sixth sense stifling the landfill

monsieur misspells his departures
as “god-bye”

all is held
because of hurt
not despite
