Autumn Poem 2012

Hoa Nguyen


Call capable

a lemony

light & fragile


Time like a ball and elastic


so I can stop burning the pots


wondering yes electric stove


She is her but I don't reme

mber remember

the ashes I obsess She said


I was obsessed with

(not wanting to work with



Mandible dream

says the street

& ash work


because the scorn

and ions long

there I wor I woke up

in the overlooked dark


I work

do that warp twistingly

wrap the dead


Black and white like the

long-dead starved pet rodent

eating the basement

curtains and peanut shells



I walk I wal

I walks down sometimes

why the advi


abide the advice was


not "Fair better"

but "Fail better"


Auto dish soap

½ and ½

Coffee beans


Bake the golden things

Rust colors

Rust colors
