Time/ Cut

By Kai Speirs

It is the hour of news and

I want to collage like rachel

maddow to meddle with

Just-pictures/ Just-images so faithlessly

that war becomes meaningless and

I can smear child-stick-glue across

your checks to press clippings of

Vanity and Glamour and Time magazine.

En de Parfum and you laugh with full breath—!

 

Oh to collage at the printer-parts eating away

in the whirls, their senseless

Making—Making—Making

All is so equally ignored

so easily bored.

—He’s Alive! with the curse of onlookers

with stony black eyes

Cut—Cut—Cut

and they fall away like paper scraps.

 

In your honor,

from your poem titled “rooms”: I

Hear

Everything

—and I add three lines: and get an immense urge/ to jump and/

mingle with the sky.
