The Good Enough Other


bothered by

the backside


of a mirror


sucked into

being behind


what's not

entirely but


not entirely

not seen.

 Begging the Question


Running

the gauntlet,


looking for

loopholes,


yet to

have submitted


but wanting to

(beg the question).

 Here...

on the cusp

of legibility,


just to the side

of erasure,


adjacent to jouissance.

 From a Notebook


If one

denies oneself


one thing

one can


deny one's

self another.


The opposite's

also true.


Addiction swings

both ways.

 Theory and Practice


There isn't

much which


doesn't make

me anxious.

I Want To Talk About You

 

You are

a figment,

               

                 jammy

signal interference,

 

an odor –

raw scent.

 

*

 

You/us.

 

We are

entangled but

 

discontinuous

in what

 

is felt,

what seen.

 

*

 

There is

no I,

 

no one

to know,

 

without what

you do.

 

What will

you make

 

of me?

 

*

 

No one’s

a list. 

 

Nonetheless one

segments in-

 

to parts

and patterns.

 

*

 

Let’s talk

about our

 

borders and

those who

 

haunt us.
