[Poem] The Efformation

The Efformation



the departed eagle sits

shaping contemporary narrative
(out of nothing but air)

POLITICAL REALITY.
IS TRANSFORMED

SMASHES.
LARGE
PUSSY.

historical pain.
of humanness.

something I
conceptualize
if I could stop you.

Finding
our
flippers.

we shouldn’t care.
asking: is it
in our language.
articulated.

bits and shifts;
entirely, neither

cracking a joke
in the living room

it doesn’t help.
