Spumoni strata
or wall epidermis tear
energy sponge
of wood & frail
metal & glass, a ghost
is a room’s trauma
or its fond recollection,
but which is which?

Vertical line does not
suggest a stable
horizon but an opening
or the aperture
of a tunnel as in the fabled
heavenly point-of-light
death-vision, funny
nobody ever nearly goes to hell—
flames & depravity—even lovers
of flames & depravity.
Mutton fat & honey 
In Jordan upon the rhino 
we rode through the wall.
