Three Poems from Anatomical Sketches, Book 7


What forces aligned to take THERSEYN into vortex
By which we saw martialed
        projections of his anatomy
The gangbang projecting projectilism’s project
HE   :   central
                         his power distant there
Kin to and by way of kinship       
                        hearsay HE
Any source picks up on name
                       therefore reading him
             relations EKSTONISTIAN grounds       her here
So this step          alignment with Earth
Bed by which HE birthed and fucked         into
          ONÖNYXA’s magnetics           as if or by design
          OÖND’s initial vibration          OOM’s returning blood-beat
                               essence of essence
Calls distance to attention re-sounding thru
                               re-organized desire destining her pleasure plane
           THERSEYN               renews in reaching 


How Cycle unifies to spook ultimate ordering

Open lawless tradition
Return of ONÖNYXA to her parentage OÖND
We hear patient feet from ocean floor
Unlike Aphrodite but so like orders of a goddess
              brings back artefact she’s taken?

Or        given
            History      investigation it needs be         discovers
            Power        unable to handle

Each             before and after
             drowns morphing irresolution the first beginning

          raised like a pole planted
Her body now planeted        
                   sends to the quaking ground     
EKSTONISTIAN            solitude
               sweats        maiden rumor of the world
      haunting our testings and trials

ONÖNYXA with upturned face

Come to end her life?
Openness her grasp the handle of what most moved
                deep            deeper than any want
         or means to merely how
                                                   know ends existence.

Representation of a story to tell?
She the way coordination of different order
          questions anthropoidal position
                                                    adherence to her beginning
                            life-giving in no other world than Earth’s
                                        meditative paths led to forsake
           the mind purified synonymous shapes
                               her own first shaking sense thus time
                      we know too in cellular capacities        re-charged
       no longer lost discharge and flaccid de-generation

Investigates by what she holds
                      spanning attention rapt to the ur-source
