Overture

















Tita Cicognani

searching for a beginning,
floating in the salt water.
the structure of your presence,
your possible murderer.
and it seems memorable
to exist in two ways,
the contours of your shape
the compounds of your character.
the latter to outlive you.
to be attributed to
new publishing on prior years
new artifacts from previous eras.
Tita Cicognani



in search.
Miller Robinson, Catherine Fairbanks




and
you walk into your house and it doesn't look familiar
and
you walk into your house and it looks like
a skeleton of its structure
Miller Robinson

and
you walk into your house and you forgot your key
while your key looks back at you
like a magic 8 ball.
and the elephant hauling a plow during wartime.
with your heat resting above,
this home denies access

this memory is at fault

this monument is plated in expensive metal
to then be removed to not have it show.
if you remember, the opulence shows

staying awake in an attempt
to remember the last thought
you had before you fell asleep

when i was younger i used to spend a lot of time at the freight yard. the most exciting part about that to me was that every
time i would go back, there would be different trains. i enjoyed the overwhelming feeling of being next to those very large
freight trains. it reminded me of when you are on an airplane and the wheels lift off the ground and that intrinsic piece of
you remains on the ground and your body is pulling away.
