'The exquisite corpse shall drink the new wine'

sky opens like heart, heart opens like sky, like legs, like cunt, like mouth, hinged, hungry, little birds, like fingers, spread against blue sheets, green sheets, grey sheets of rain closing sky, white sheets of paper rippling outside revealing patterns of air, hung over edges to dry, blue sheets, green sheets, over edges, head hung over edge, supine, feline, palm upward, skyward, to receive, to give, fist opens into palm, palm skyward, to detect, to bestow, palm closes into fist, to fight, to drag, knuckles graze along ground, beads of blood like marbles each one, joining in rivulets running down ranges of knuckles, gathering in pools at the wrist, a reflection, not ugly not beautiful, clear, pupils dilate, hungry, spread against face, against blue green sheets of face, the lashes, the shifting colour of irises, now brown, now green, petals in ones and twos, love, not love, ardent yellow centre like yolk, dumb with pollen, one function, pulling legs off ants, off spiders, love, not love,

pillowcase, unrumpled, pink, cat paw grit, big toe, craned neck, toss this way, toss that, nothing becomes fire, sticks against cold, nothing becomes fire, black freckle in green eye, blue freckle on white shoulder, blue nails, red lips, flight of stairs, foot kicking empty cigarette box, foot kicking mouthful of teeth, red lips, beads of blood like marbles, joining in rivulets running down ranges of mouth, gathering in pools at the hollow of neck, a reflection, clear and ugly as sin, sinner’s reflection, clear and ugly, beheading, behearting, short wooden boxes, coffin, confession, operations of hurt, zip zip zip bag is closed, door is closed, arms are closed, mouth is closed, eyes are closed,

in missing bodies fall apart, shoulders, head, headless body, cock, fingers, strewn across blue sheets, green sheets, murderous, murderess, destroyer, white hand, pink tongue, wet cunt, blue nails, brown curl,

in missing bodies come together, new logic of bodies, new bodies of logic, far and near, one, another, a new monster, fingers, brown curl, wet cunt, head, shoulders, white hand, cock, pink tongue, headless body, blue nails,

together in lines, words, fresh monsters, new things,

a game of Exquisite Corpse -
