MA work

words.
pretty-weird-amazing

they
let you
shape the feel of the unfeelable,
contact-mic the imagination,
viddy the inconceivable

they
seance-sew you into the past,
fuzzy-felt you into the future,
voodoo-pin you to the present

ensnare this name-game melee
(floating there, in the invisible)
loctite it to the page -
the letterforms grow ivy-like in breadth and
labyrinthine in depth

get the fingers and eyes to follow suit, deliciously
that's the name of my game

and where my words and your words venn, work forms
