Gene Tierney

Sleep Before You

after listening to will oldham

                   sphinctum rip

        roaring shadow play :

sibilant removal company
at work on canalised

menace terrains
on slippery figures tapping up
hippocampus employees

                incorporated whole hog

waterhole just as               into hissed

               by experimenting
     with smaller peristalsis

dazed or dais or dialled in

mind control full

no places:

the flying horse
loft homes
versions:    when listen ferris

            it’s the chicken
            twists the bell
the light and water carrier worrier

no point
closing with
the bone raid

the sentenced careerist     well

magnesium for sleep
hugs for the meet
