Three Poems


Paolo Javier

FORMAL APOLOGY TO MY ASSHOLE
 
     Manananggal yun, di ba
 
serial attendant chupacabra
 
Lacan on par with desperate cardiac likeness
 
Carnivorous in deeper cellar
 
 
     O cat lion
 
essential entrances Ovid only
 
arbors a lead summit saddle
 
soft bellies in Erberus
 
a leper polyp not in a quarry
 
tipples emphasis I sell back tarantados
 
Dadaist I sewed graphs on variant belief
 
     veto neologism
 
epilogue leper polyp epilogue revolve octave
 
 
     Antsy Nazi, how you deter desolation jaunts
 
to the contrary come up simpering, a sum of all your garish
 
stench of a lion right out of the voice
 
 
 
 
Maybe Im All Of This
 
     Pinch me into sexy
 
simple edifice of your crown, pinch me into sexy
 
until the higher rose madder lends hey.
 
Palpable buttons to choose from this season
 
Im wearing unsentimental Antigone
 
incest reneged
 
 
     Pinch me into sexy in prolific commas
 
harmonies, eloquent, a vintner of your lithe embrace
 
hunky lamenter conceived by a pair
 
of litigated omniscience
 
 
     O constant pinch
 
sigh in all brute liberty
 
equal gaze resounding in warp speed.
 
 
     O ocean love for miles on solid
 
from your lost supplicant
 
restrained in mud
 
 
     Restrained in mud—
 
 
 
 
MCCARTHY AT HEART
 
     Hell’s tragic question anonymous
 
a hole in Valhalla   Im lavender
 
senility sinabi abalone all ensues Valhalla
 
in all chores erode us succor one I ahoy
 
a déjà-vu insert tormenting a pregnant Army
 
hell’s tragic disturbance iodine justices design
 
 
Time question hay queer voyage water
 
Annunaki falsifies in mist
 
causes dip so that I mar employment   a rap license
 
delay Valdemort debt unto cue you erase demise
 
Siam Nazi sedation
 
a mulatto
 
     squadron used to prop up the dead
 
fratricide salads consult intrigue bonded
 
 
     I, St. Exupery, can manage entreaty
 
I, St. Exupery, hand a revolver
 
my aquiline laundry ropes Salem entrée garments
 
an entreaty key Alma dares lavender
 
die chosen   encapsulated library    aching to harm you
 
reprobate in case I save in case I dupe
 
 
     FARTHER AN AVENUE KIMONO
 
chaos sold to rich Naples relatives
 
lowing in Orlando
