Example text

Filled my days with model trains and trees whittled down, lowered my face into miniature smoke rising from the locomotive, at once acrid and sweet— inhaling it all, a heaven to hold forever. Or, a picnic, on a green hill. Autumn sun, sandwiches stacked high, and who I could love with me on a red gingham blanket, both of us fattened by time. You would think a bone stoppered my throat for how I talk, ridiculous clot of babble and gurgle, impediment as dreamed by the idiot or obvious— and then writ large, screamed out so no one with ears could ever miss me.

In the largest eyes ever, the goggling gimlets of the architeuthis as we sink in the inkwell dark of the blind ocean. As extras in the cast of Yog the Space Amoeba, mouthing Japanese we never before knew, our fear real, the danger fake, each building burnt like a cheap cigarette, down to an ashen stub, down to the loveless earth where you say to me we must run or die. indd 31 6/29/07 11:31:14 AM Seduction with Entropy If you think I’m honest, speak to me when it’s night.

Nothing ever stops in my world to hear me singing to you. I have always loved you, sweet twin, beloved doppelgänger, alien lump of word in my mouth, language I spent three years learning only to forget when it grew too hard the phrases that meant something: Dear, I am your long lost butter cookie; and, I am sorry, it was accidental, but I have dipped the poodle in laudanum.
