1 · an exploded and exploding body · a tucked and tumbling weave of voices · here · inscribed with another’s desire · from out
of the illusion of its unresolved control · where speech is
impossible · both in and out of the darkness · in the margins
of its demand · that it will always appear · between the two
it punctures · an exploded and exploding body · the illusion
of an event · inscribed with another’s desire · the body
and its unspeakable walls · here · a voluminous rapidity
of figurative thought · woven · a tucked and tumbling weave
of voices · one to another · a tetanic will · here · from out
of the illusion of its unresolved control · at the edge
of the soiled sheets of all of these dreams · both in and out
of the darkness · that it will always appear · between the two
it punctures · an exploded and exploding body · in the margins
of its demand · balanced on the tip of the tongue · where speech 
is impossible · that it will always appear · from out of the illusion
of its unresolved control · here · one to another · the illusion
of an event · a tucked and tumbling weave of voices · the body
and its unspeakable walls · moving irresistably toward you ·
a voluminous rapidity of figurative thought · woven by the hands
of another · coming into the darkness · here · from out
of the illusion of its unresolved control · the illusion
of an event · inscribed with another’s desire · both in and out
of the darkness · a voluminous rapidity of figurative thought ·
here · where speech is impossible · a tucked and tumbling weave
of voices · woven by the hands of another · in the margins
of its demand · the illusion of an event · where speech is impossible · that it will always appear · woven by the hands
of another · the illusion of an event · balanced on the tip
of the tongue · both in and out of the body · where speech is
impossible · the illusion of an event · displacing · one
to another · here · that it will always appear · inscribed
with another’s desire · a tucked and tumbling weave of voices ·
spilling · in the margins of its demand · between the two
it punctures · from out of the illusion of its unresolved control ·
a voluminous rapidity of figurative thought · here · resolvent ·
spilling · in the margins of its demand · the illusion
of an event · inscribed with another’s desire · where speech is
impossible · a tetanic will · that it will always appear ·
