new poetry/art collection/collaboration with ana c.

ana’s collaging makes me knee-weak/dead-legged/steven seagal-ed.

she is the georgia o'keeffe of pasting materials not normally associated with one another onto surfaces to be enjoyed.

her spontaneous mishmashings of clippings, photographs fragments, crossword puzzles, etc. shuck your brain from its calcium casing like the $2 oyster it is and ravenously tongue-mop your head clean before discarding what you once were like some barnacled shell.

adam coates helped too. i don't know adam coates but am grateful for adam coates. thank you adam coates. adam is a great name.
