White Wedding Sonnets

It’s a Nice Day to Start Again



It’s a nice day for a white wedding
Necessary rivers appear funicular
as the one that leads past Florence
in Pollaiuolo’s Hercules

and Deianeira the damage to which panel
makes it the discontinuous animal
of a less oily century
of an old humidity in which

weakness which is haggling with god
distills to sweeter roue
which lemons at a banquet
even undrunk

cannot compete with as Hercules
aims at the centaur stealing his wife

Hey Little Sister What Have You Done



Today a frost light
rules all hated creatures
among which one incessantly
aims at the centaur stealing one’s wife

One cannot compete with/as Hercules
Driving east one does not tell the weather
which lemons at a banquet
to savage or hail

Met by the rumblestrip
one inquires beyond it politely
of a less oily century
What is your animal life?

No labors appear
in Pollaiuolo’s Hercules

It’s a Nice Day to Start Again



Driving east one told the weather
to stew and the other asked
“What is your animal life?”
and “What kind of strife

rules the beloved creature?”
One claimed “Its being in our organs
makes it a discontinuous animal”
and the other “Our organs

could be the kind residue
of an old humidity” in which
weakness which is haggling with god
distills to a sweeter roue

Even undrunk
necessary rivers appear funicular

It’s a Nice Day to Start Again



One of us demanded a wedding
of an old humidity in which
to stew, and the other asked
that clam shacks on the isthmus

distill to a sweeter roue:
and what kind of strife
even undrunk
drives east and tells the weather

to match its catenary dew?
One claimed its being in our organs
could be the kind residue
of the Other our organs

obscure. The other collected
hygrometers and waited.

Look for Something Left in This World



What is your animal life
Asks your wagon wheel while you
Aim at the centaur stealing your wife
It could be a kind residue

That makes you a discontinuous animal
While the centaur dissects her
According to esoteric sagittal
Rules the beloved creature

Performs a last dance with her tether
Of weakness which is haggling with god
Driving east you tell the weather
Gentle please on the temple façade

That will depict her
Where necessary rivers appear funicular
