autumn is a time for tending. when was the last time you were home? when you close your eyes - are there green hills? fireflies? when did you learn to take cover? do you remember your first lie? what happened to that boy who kissed you behind your friend’s house?

 

The Stay Project is here for you. send your tendencies and tender musings to threepoets2017@gmail.com.

1/59 Vegas ‘17

I listened a crystal shaman

in Phoenix

sing how last seconds

dying brain releasing DMT

be a rollercoaster

Japan train reversing

through a hologram forest

history of adolescence:

I hoped I’d see her diet Darth Vader

voice happen again

(masseter cheek muscle

a raised cinnamon stick).

I wanted to watch my clone

wanting to grab a gold fig

from her throat

(always sheathed by beige neck

skin till scattering atoms).

Those last 2 minutes are cinema, 60

years re-lived, he said.

Though right now (is right now

right now?) I can’t picture

concert sunset, legislation, trigger

behind linguistic sheet music,

TICK a tick a TICK a tick.

Maybe I imagined it (sorry:

here is two dimensional

literal

hard to remember)

or maybe I missed

the chemical trip

since my cerebrum beds half

a hot Nevadan bullet or

inside each death hole of us

waits an extinct accordion

with only two notes, repeated:

always isn’t, always isn’t?

1 - Austin Beaton

2 - Rose Knapp
