Today's poem is by Douglas Piccinnini


the "correct" channel in detail
is dust by dust of skin to frame
in one way the "disdain of generations"

apathy ifs to "wake" this scenery—
banners of unapproachable past
nonfruiting flower in the window.

to say I've come up in absurd discharge
a way of not knowing
the particulars of any sound—

I leave my love as yet
as blue is a "color" as black is
"endless" "space"
