Fashion Beauty Bug

for Kathy Acker

How you see it.
How you don’t.
What explodes.
What fizzles.
Look once.
Many lights.
Look again.
A structure
of reality
made numinous.
An electrical
state of grace.
Surfaces shine.
Friction between
eye and subject
strikes sparks.
Library as
swag pile.
What’s done,
never finished.
Kindling for
new blazes.
Stolen fire.
Be Promethean.
Write it down hard.
Hard as living is.
Make the I decide.

Honorary Schizophrenic. Recent refugee. Displaced person. Old white male. Confidant of cassowaries.
