Alli Warren: Notebook Poem the Second


I read the books
of discoveries
of men

they mark the burning
with a flag

their ratting talent
and unique bond
I look up
to find the whole
Quarterly aglow

What happened
to the relational empire
of the never-ending gaze?

I name all the owners
of this district
say how much
each of them has

to love more
I breathe wanting
the interlocked grills

to open me
splinter our clothed
& unpenetrated bodies

The death of Lazarus
precedes the death of Bummer
