Invention (con't)



Ethical wishes the audience

sends me into
ampersand speech

meaning take care with spoken

which chooses face-off
to save face. Misdirection begins

when I try
making everything permanent

wind-up toys reacting to breeze.

What is made? Silence
re-alienates only one

self to nurse
toward health. I separate

me from me. Swap out

prepared surprise. Find
good people doing good things—

exposing a breast
while feeding? I want to

but surrender in confusion’s repudiation.
