Here comes the satellite with every gleaming
distance gliding over it
enter frenetic clime and draw the deepest ink
out of rabid goals
only then appear initial glints of what they call
the Matches
causing nets to fall on random rings from other planes

Jumping in lack of space the region blusters
moving flasks from envy
hopping the grated plow to make it on to
weather a stone apart
only at the shining of a tine proliferating Matches
cold but singular and teeming with arrythmic down

What is your name—oh I see
you’re not quite here
where are you from—is that so
some other place

Flashes upon the brine and statues move in
view of two beyond blue
meeting the waving mind and harbored in the
crest of a lovely nest
magical causality is bound to gesture over borders
fold along the grain of paper lined with gabardine

Here comes the subtle light with many keening
instants hiding into it
stopping the gate allows to wake up on the
heather a Bonaparte
only when up here a simple hint of lectures
hover boulders
pausing bets to call on random wings from other manes


from The Tubular West, track released January 31, 2013
