Monocle Fevers / Joshua Martin

Mangy are the whirling fan blades
that plates careen

shutter shutter shutter bugs
monocle fevers groping
groupings staler than song

lusty fish overtake the soupy
grieving annuls resting pale
megaphone a battleship glance
nervous system puptent
hallucinating sludge rivers
