Into Some Wild

the current ache
of investment days
whether innate endurance
of archeological buffs
towards many throw downs
the earth built us
in our relations
of missing antidotes

biophilia answers
the mother connection
that inlaid our
strain developing
connecting fauna
of old worlds
towards any sensory
gyrus that accepts it
and in turn becomes
wholesome again

Smooth Mac

PEELER by Jairus Bilo

the changeless face of bunk
attitudes
flow out of us like chameleon
                skin
it was a defence mechanism
we pasted
until we were nothing but
    the harshest colours

thinning out softly forever
past any mention
of another cutoff segue
        breaking lines
to somehow connect
        fuzz rhythms
of our liquid posterity

mesquite drama to simulate
    scenes worth exciting
all the while listening
for repeats and deliberations
    inside the blank
crossover of sandwich days

Hey girl…

TEXTUAL NODS by Jairus Bilo

from left to
right like it meant
something

I could be
primitive and
instinctual

all at once
proudly inanimate
as if possible

the second
acknowledgment
fucks us over

again
