The One No One Remembers

arrive with a photo in hand
in the photo
a distant land, a place

no one remembers

a little river
runs through a village,
houses made of candy

sugar-coated
lamps

it’s snowing
sugar

tracks of horse and buggy
cars haven’t been invented yet

in the distant sky
the moon

beneath the moon
the village

seen in the light
of its glow

*

can’t escape
even if tried
the
lids’ too shut

it makes the piercing
remark of a voice

how to handle
the dial
when it’s already up

can we take a breather
no

slow to the skid
mark and row
boats out
of the nostrils of sharks
and foam
bat
whack
teddy bears
till they
smack dirt
flirt with
weddings and death beds
harvest grease
monkeys teased
to death

tinkle

wiggle
toes

expose

loads and loads of cargo gold
held in the back of hippopotami

minds
caves

canaries

shaved in the mirror
fairies
clean teeth with
bristles

thistle

collection
connectivity
insert this wire

someone outside

watches lights glow
scrutinizes air conditioning
never alone
leave

it

to the exhibit

fan blades
sway clouds
harvest
gun shots
pock marked streets
cartons of
milk
cartons of
quiet

forming newspaper
paragraphs in the
shape of a fist
flag help
air

between peep hole
stars

turn
clockwise
faceless
masks
enter
with

blazing
light follow

step

to path and crouch
we’re watching
what

TV
fails to
reflect

windows

on the inside
cranium
deep sigh
elevate
sky

to pea size
necessary
yellow

lines march in a door slam
someone says hello

here again
dented in the tinted
under
air

get out

*

because simply stated
it didn’t equate to the realism of the photograph

the one
know one remembers
