"The Form"

- Evan Barbaric


fortress, might, spires of steel
gate of stars, hard and cold
iron walls, wooden wills
desert place, cool evening
to cast the Earth in vaporous shroud
and efface the formlessness of memory
we are approaching

* * *

this is the first/last screening
the filtering of minds
for those (if yours) which are too small
shall fall through to the bottomless ether
as insubstantial grains, to be burned alive
upon the atmosphere
of tribal exhalations

* * *

wooden faces
plastic trees
come up all from the Dead Sea
to walk infertile deserts
marching on to Seir
