The Term

by William Carlos Williams

A rumpled sheet

of brown paper

about the length

 

and apparent bulk

of a man was

rolling with the

 

wind slowly over

and over in

the street as

 

a car drove down

upon it and

crushed it to

 

the ground. Unlike

a man it rose

again rolling

 

with the wind over

and over to be as

it was before.

IOgraph

by A K Blakemore

IO spills

on desert like a spoon of cold blood

where the mighty auroch graze at her big white stain

 

IO touches

her tongue to god’s

through a priceless gauze. he likes this

 

IO of the

the abomasum and scur. the king of egypt

bathes in rosewater for her

 

IO - a portrait

by Gerhard Richter: haptic rosettes

of cardinal blue / fog in the Strait of Istanbul / horn-cooped moon

 

IO can’t concentrate

for the gadfly stings. her temperament is assumed

to be multidimensional. she has, after all, such human eyes.
