AFTER VIEWING A SHORT DOCUMENTARY ON ROBERT DUNCAN
(for Stephan Delbos)
 

I went back
in time and I
was still

here nor there

the parts
of my manhood
resembling a sentence

that sounds good
like a Motown riff in a..
in a funked-up groove

I see a train of piggyback
metallic Cadillacs, all
fins and chrome

shark and mirrors

this stifling Progress
taking us somewhere
in the trunk of a car

duct-taped cocoon
and soon
a long time ago

taking flight
from the sky's pockets
never felt so easy

every global dating site
is a ministry of foreign affairs
my bishop, an interior minister
