The Poem Enters the House
It began with the confusion
obscene, and the zodiac only
knocks at the door, asks to enter,
or a zombie. You say that anything
that word. Dismantling the engine
That makes the poem nervous
and it dies.

If this was a movie
I would drift back
Only the bike named Betsy
All before I cared about any other wanting.
No big questions.
If there was thought
a blurry frame
