The Latest Attempt

Rod Smith

at abandonment, a bruising
snap of pertain. initial

wrought mechanism
sutured by                 or

accomplished. Sedimentary articulation
become the lush agnostic coal of

past insurance agents. The second and final episode:
World At Will in which the sea demon ceases . . . .

         and all that
bearable distress

"the way one talks"
"with some structure"
"escaped my notice"

Are not our feelings, as it were, inscribed
on the things around us. sandwichman, promoter, publicist,
wellspring, coxswain,

last weather
and well her rendering

of that which is distant:

debris, demands, basalt, inert
everything in this one
nothing in addition.
