from Figures for a Darkroom Voice

So this is what it means to pull an all-nighter from what forms the whispering in your kitchen cupboards. The police radio’s comforting dispatcher ignores the private detective’s stony leer & the minute hand badgers the waltz leader’s epilepsy from the doorbell into his dog’s notion of a spotting scope’s dutiful mistress. We lift off a luster & carve a miniature elephant onto the doorknob. Background blending with foreground to prefigure perspective in an etching that resembles a water ode but sounds like a helicopter blade hacking apart a radio tower.
