Poem for June 13

June 16, 2012 § Leave a comment

from Notes from Irrelevance

Armed with an early
termination fee, a
delusion with regard
to neither denying
nor being of the past,
a lazy fly to center,
a transcription of
a stain on the soul
of the off-looker…
armless, disregarding
the mediated affect
of trees and their
privileged iterations
of objective fallacy in
the face of impassive
pregame nihilisms
tuned to talk’s vanishing
outline, I came.

-Anselm Berrigan, Notes from Irrelevance (Wave Books, 2011)
