‘taping the lips’Anthony Robinson
all involve the idea of sweetness the honey of elbow brown hair firefly + inside you + loping latitude. the loveliest I’ve seen on that particular chair. bend back. over. again. + stars. [i]douceur[/i]. the purloined love letter. we burned everything left our clothes on her banks + the french have a word. it is not “freedom” those men have a bomb + “you, my gazelle, really are the bomb.” —the man, you see, was drunk he was trying to say the name of a rhyming poem— she fucked him. lucky error. + all develop independently all make reference to the slippage. sever sever sever. my love, i owe you several missiles. i misspell my desire. drop it on the floor. watch the cartoon flames dance dance &. + it is not like a womb it begins with “mother” + i need to be your skin. look at those people. their flesh is on fire. “i suppose that must have been some buildings with people in them” + all involved. all culpable. all cuppable. the idea of sweetness. inside you, capably so.
