this poem is musical metaphor. what i mean is
it's about Philip Glass and Metamorphosis.
this poem has colours instead of eyes. what i mean is
it's about Maggie Nelson's obsession with blue.
is there really a man
whose eyes leak blue?
this poem listens to the colours of glass. what i mean is
it's about a solo piano. a series of blue notes.
a discord. a harmony. a flat five.
a darkness. a story.
i once heard a man
read Kafka over Glass
this poem is repetition insisting. what i mean is
it's about becoming the breath of sound.
this poem is the kindness of cruelty. what i mean is
it's about monstrous vermin on a precipice of glass.
this poem is stalactite filled lungs
transforming voices to ice.
this poem is the repetition of breath
shattering mosaic eyes.
