SuperHero - Jeff Fleming


it’s not the boots
that draw me

thigh high
though they may be

studded, spangled
with stars

nor is it
the mystic bracers

your righteous wrists

their glimmer
and shine not enough

your fluttering cape
snapping to attention

the golden
garland wreathed

through your hair
with such heroic flair

in tiny hoops

through each ear
these captivate, enthrall

but alone are not
dynamic enough

to entice me,
nor the strength

of your countenance,
the mighty

purpose of your
gaze, though hypnotize

it may, something
other is your power

the naked weakness
you try in vain

to cloak
draws the villain

in me from
his veiled lair

Kenotic Remembrance - Matthew Hall

Kenotic Remembrance

white thought


close / artless / feint parameters

vis-à-vis aphasia

the ruined code of captive architecture

sequence reliance

missing elements [∞]

the resonant line

ontological patterns of red dirt

or granite, or distant regard

grotesque mechanics

in fields of home

lechery in the distance of negative freedom

on edgeless overlays / palimpsest / dimension

stagnant between the adjoining image

a compound enclosure of horizon / instance /

a scream which bears it teeth

and then recedes

Matthew Hall
