Behavioral Changes Are Imminent: Broodling, Not Geomancy

Screams pewter alike blistery;
My deceased bowler hat burying
the rousing bird (is Coltrane on a shoulder and this is the subway)
and hushed polished greatness.

My deceased bowler hat burying
the uncommon morning head fixtures
and hushed polished greatness
is Scotch water contemplating colours.

The Uncommon Morning Head Fixtures
‘no question soft boil enzyme reactions’
Is Scotch water contemplating colours?
Large egg in stiletto nest has answers.

No question: soft-boil enzyme reactions,
Murderers of Post-Modern dreams!
Large egg, in stiletto nest, has answers
flocking to cratered nightmare impressions!

Murderers of Post-Modern dreams
collect the marionette’s nail drops,
flocking to cratered nightmare impressions
dancing in auburn festival cages.

Collect the marionette’s nail drops.
Imperative of soundings and reasoning
dancing in auburn festival cages—
it will soon be over.

Imperative of soundings and reasoning
screams pewter alike blistery—
It will soon be over.
The rousing bird is Coltrane on a shoulder and this is the Subway.
