Poetry: "Biometric Geometry" & "

biomorphic geometry

magic genes are magic beans making

the stalks grow strange ly

creates re / sist / ance


fractured treebones


herbicidal maniacs engineering re /vers / al

lang leah

in the swathe of densely annotated corridors

everything becomes a poem the ivory render splayed / shimmering/ lurking

among the dark conifers / boxed blackwater a salty batch of words to weave & wave shepherds now lost / like rough highways in the stolen pauses & a thicket beckons from the

ether’s lonely imprint

take me to the lizard landscape / where all the words I ever knew / the worlds I never knew /

whirl helter skelter / finding their place their space / blameless / aimless / seeking respite

despite buffering snapdragons envelop me & gorge
