Night Fast

4.80  ·  Rating details ·  5 ratings  ·  2 reviews
I want to know what is real
I’m entering a new error

As an aerial architect
And just, totally, “bad” “character”

Sieved through the thousand eyes
Of the world’s night

For my dearhearts who surround me
In the forest of our form-forgetting

For every slave with
The uppity diction

Who could know
Everything that can be articulated

Is trash

Marked as "read," it will always be also. Current

If I said, these poems extend beyond "Vaudeville," it would not do either justice. Best? What is "Best"? Beast. dear deer heart people polis gut gutter.
Allyssa Wolf is creating the best poetry I've ever read. There's nothing like it. Comes from every and no. Prophetic.

Night Fast.
