Genius has no memory
and the soul registers from the mundane, from the purging that
begins to look schoolmarm

slugs into his face slugs into the officer
fragments of a creature now called little pear, then

rock shows forms of man that the murder occurred
replacing the chord called spirit

each interglacial period--the time body they came from
bones of a child killed by the religious frenzy of the ghost dance

water consciousness flat-faced, fuzzy-cheeked, but he commanded
suckle their young change to a vertical face

cemented on the slide with balsam electron

...then you must be very forgetful.

replacing the chord called, ouch.
