the world is fastened together with

string and glue and

jutting wires—

this fantastical spidermess

bleeding in every blade of grass

every brick dripping slowly

the palm trees are all plastic

souvenirs and they might

atomize into hairspray if

i breathe—

the air shivering on the

(palm tree structure-ninja) wires

would shatter these trees into

shards of more

curlish insanity string.
