Trilobite

“Available Epigraphs”

Jonny Lohr

Ignore convention a while

And in return get this nice joke

Yeah, I like Sarah McLachlan Plenty

Hopefully building just enough to get it

And then

Get it by getting it

And getting how to get it

“Begotten”

So to speak by

Surfacing obfuscation together



Look up rorate

That is the image


Sheltering

From text


Or also

As assembly



Picture coast

Becoming coast

Strings swelling in

Breathing

Snoring brass



If you feel bored

Redraw the radio mystery

Shocking comparisons

From billions to circumference


God-display of mechanism

Clocks made

Hour’s a symbol woven throughout


Material

Then

Silence built to schedule


Fermenting Monstrance

Defenestration

Encasement pointing

Not diegetic



Tinnitus echoes our interlude

Municipal & Interlude


Transportation plates in orbit

Edges scrape around each surface


What percentage of this is artifact

& which generation


Laid sheet on plaid

Numbers are exact blur


Hold up an image

A planet against the planet


Search through flux of cold

Chasing hot color vehicles


Now aged & it’s speckled

Expected


        Another chuckle


That Trotskyist typeface is funny today

Evoking their hand-written signs


Ironic

It’s immutability loss

Pinpoints the referent’s prime



Memento Mori


A tattoo of a skeleton smoking a cigarette,

holding a banner that says ‘it’s a living’



This is only half of the solo


Delay

Forgotten


A new pope elected in the factory

Smoke or


Constructing another pilgrimage

Whichever takes precedence



Where’d I find this recitation?


Knows how memory can fail

When someone is strapped to a printing press



Job offer:

Henosis


Unsuccessful

Attempts to jump

Dielectric & dialectic


Losing opera and lumber

Yeasts with each fermentation



Orchestration follow libretto

set in Linotype plates


Saints

atonal

glockenspiel


The

book

I

remembered

is

the

one

I

imagine.


Staple

stack

of

sheets

into

publication.


Press

repeats.



Scharmel Iris play

Occult tying the long desires

Romantic to Modern of


Attaining aristocracy

Specific celebrity

Join me in silence and cunning



What I’ve been afraid to say

The memory remains

& unobliviated

Yet

Static resonating


I just work here

A pneumatic tube

Extended from that mural

Proscenium from the representative

Reflection of the past.



Voices harmonized to synthetic

Horns sound

Hard to tell

Rasterized

                like pastiche


The shift from quotations

Ends with an offness

Draped flattening calculations

Curves lines to sheets

Without scale


Cover the world

Like really world

Well, liquidity &

Light precedes

an overtaken dialogic
