Balkanization

William Repass

Balkanization photo

in the former line I almost told you a

thing I’d regret how I overstepped &
steeped late nite irish & english breakfast
together in the one canister can’t tell you

what dispossessed me sat erect
beside the checked quilt in fishnets
through the hibernation thinking where
 

     hand        leaf       bag      milk        east
leg        stock     nose      join       black    
 

now where did I put that roll of
scottish invisible tape?

this is the hammer & sickle graffiti &


this is the open lagoon
