solve for x

solve for x

 

in the aftereffect,

too much noise—

the trucks came and emptied

all our variables

 

since, reassigned

 

a lack of concurrency

is now the main line

 

*

 

it’s the bystanders

with questions to answer,

lacking warrant to enter the site

 

you decided not to—

frequency of story—

line broken by intermittent

interjection

 

but it was a decision?

among all possible decisions

the sky seemed bigger than it is,

at least as conjured

 

pull it down tight,

to limit the options

 

*

 

as drawn from a photograph,

lines lock depth

 

to know tricks

at the lock, to know

atmosphere, to know

by hand the image

rejected by the object

 

a confession, ok,

continues, regardless

 

for someone else to unravel—it’s not

the size, it’s the overwhelming

number

are we inside

the number?

 

please speak your name

 

the pause

is that which–

we are inside

the number
