Like Bismuth When I Enter

Like Bismuth When I Enter is an urgent undoing of sense and syntax, an epistemology of disruption, a move toward a lawlessness of language.

In a federal diagram choker, headgear responds, as a pamphlet of death’s duty, as a cage where assault is unrehearsed. Consider the other parcels of sodomy. Consider stylistic panic from a merganser’s pole. Consider the delicate floor flame. How it walks within the bells and spheres already indicated. Who propels a foolish game of unfurthering the yellow stationary eventual.

Beryl blue leaf, quotidian quiz, lift the rain of Kansas from a human purse. Repeat the teal skies like that. Osmotic replevin of the grey shine, dissonance in the real trials of turpitude. Cash and indecent plant photography. Natural plight of the scales in mourning.
