A field of misplaced gestures blew me away. / I want to know more about every dead fish in the arctic / My face / arms / legs / and you.

Within this riveted Babylon, a glib / superstructure that keeps the summer / fire inside, a mute vibration passes / between us.
Stand erect with abdomen well in. Arms at thrust, fists closed, / knuckles downward. Put into action that old bromide: / good riddance to bad rubbish.
Something has happened and I want to celebrate that. / I am not sleeping. Last night / we got hot dogs.
