Phantasmal Repeats

An impulse toward incompletion
convulsive branchings, austerity
alongside a weep-inducing ear
the featured song pattern you hope

to astonish their forms like arrow
versions from concert hall
hours could be a reproach
a swindle guitar blur it

that makes lips grow pillars
a higher version, one I missed
even when certainties associated
with an exacting ambit schedule

Raised by the judgment of
collegiate arcades, an artificial
or makeshift dislocation, but
we could agree it’s familiar

to us from habit, a sentence
borne on edges to the table
loose-ity makes room for
guests in the room, adjust

books on borderless shelf
should be left to chance –
