Poetry: Three Pieces by Jeremy Scott




Filter.tint/Forestgrove


silence, streams

in the forest we cry out

to false gods—ourselves,


make manifest

dreams,

soft light, protruding, specters


wherefore is the light arising?




Prognosis Elimination State OVERLAND Sequence


• belief in goodness

o falsehood fails

inertia,

o Ψ waves, Σ = wholeness

• sleeping is microdosing death

o soundscape, screaming choking drowning [ title not found]

o WHAT IF???, no that can’t be...

o dark matter puts me there,

• sonnet break, stigmata

o open weeping sore

o we are nothing, ARE WE?

o turtle back, mottled, truth declines

through the periphery, we’ll find it

queerbot, hypoactive the senses,

anarchy in my brain

parse the text with adverbial

phrases,

i am shallow,

in need of a bath,

stop the pain,

it is fear leaving the body.
