DESCRIPTION

John Yau

The Blackest Black Forest

Arlo Quint

untitled

Still weeping: even to this day the marble Trickles with tears geranium leaves

all through the grass the music is softer on the sides of the music the imitators

Of any kind of sound the bees Didn’t figure we’d find it, they made it for themselves

don’t try to clarify in person, to the sacred mountain They were planning to eat it

all winter long GO IN BEAUTY in front of the daffodils the doors flew open

hovering face down above the world still wonder can’t they message in the air

the part where the lifestyle breaks down Beside the lake, beneath the trees

Shanghai bok choi smaller than baby bok choi pre-corporate apocalypse

chanting at the box office the transition is continuous all counter measures

in the plainest language demonstrating the basic shape is most important

—Arlo Quint
