Irene Koronas /Excerpts from Codify (Editions du Cygne, forthcoming, 2017)/

24

she slits tail to mouth
guts half man

dangles backbone
because pole dancers

fuck the line

toiletries drip
hard flesh melts

the connect

ends
face

 


 

95

the heap
pregnant
with ritual

tubular corridor
to a neolithic
cartoon

 


 

61

shear
the head corpse

its ears
can’t run fast

having a big fat hole

 


 

112

jacks
his private

warts of evil

trans the divine
con
with a flirt

 


 

87

uninvited fist
thick with mucus

tight genes
imprison to bruise

in the afterhour
weight
