Luster(ed) Man
from “Hominids”

Dan Encarnacion

a cold knacker’d nautilus uncoil’d to camber                 attenuating enfilading
rooms            house (is) silent filled with unbrave form             and the walls

keeping girding unentertained                everyone look so happy, the future’s
not ours                        to see, que sera sera, so                        purify(ing)

dissolved the pinholed eye into                its gulping chamber so to see upon
itself working, hear the thrusting ocean              froth against then sigh away

pulled                by its hair, he strikes a match for three                  seconds,
the pearl’d walls                                                                   (they) orange
