A more explicit knowledge of alarm.
In its formation.  To assist the act,
the conversation of the world, the word
repressed.  The dream.  The figures, which remain

unrealized.  The living.  I observe
in April, they betray the knowledge of
the dream, the bottom of the bees, a worm.
In dream formation.  Many other dreams

in its expression, as a mould.  The word.
Her grub, the current of grandeur.  The word.
The first in one organic whole, a king,
a worm.  The tiny creature is decayed.

Texts:
Jean Henri Fabre, The Glow-Worm and Other Beetles
Sigmund Freud, Dream Psychology
Longinus, On the Sublime
Mississippi Sheiks, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Blind Willie McTell, Blues Lyrics

    Thanks from the bottom of my bees. Every once in a while the gnoetic gods help to combine the right texts with the right accentual syllabic constraint… These Sublime-inal beetles-y blues-y Freudianisms will become a longer series, I think, and a chapbook…
