stupid ducks


even they matter  —

string theory is older now  —

her eyes light the room





infinite drop kick  —

so unapologetic  —

just one shop open





ceremony riff  —

degree of abandonment  —

miraculous road





until our murders  —

eight nickels in his sock drawer–

a calling off off






unseated, for fun  —

drove to the document dump  —

ninety desks in rows






mourning was let in  —

first off, she ruined each bow  —

busy with their aunts





concentrated arms  —

stupid ducks would not frighten  —

odd way to count them
