Forensick Recovery (Ring in the News)

Moo Said Sedated Flea

Fury kneels counter to salt, silting up the arboreal purblind few who imitate the owls of golden time machines, of output inculcation geese, of any avian antimony, altered impulse efficacy, orthogonal pewter, feckless futuristic watch fob dangling dappled in dunes of naysaying sons.

On and awesomely angular, awnings bedaubed with grain, crane droppings, praline prawns, crumbs of quadrangular yet garrulous Geronimo impersonators, naïve Americans, predated debutantes, etudes in meanly sinuous coral keys, eyes beaming into pillbox scans for early sentries, lame flowered tanks of jellied questionnaires, showering the cave-ins with stag alacrity, mightily idiosyncratic fads, beverage spills, yelping globule spatulas in seaboard tufa claims of periscopes, of carried tropes, a glove, a muted dame.

Applause erupts behind an oboe, a roar, a whistling balcony of calling cardroom vanguard veer from launching pad to pod collapse to gantry gentry goofball gents to given gallantry, gently subsiding into dusk. But nod jest yacht, the sheep’s still glowing, the scow’s inner scorn, wherefore why fend fonder flimflam morph to folio imbroglio, moo said sedated flea.

Gyroscopic Hiring Fig

Bioflavonoid triumvirate in triplicate trifecta, contumely kid of cormorant, connubial collective; incipient infirmary voluminous invective!

Simper, saunter, blandish blitzing kriegspiel cotton cordite cannon, yonder yore yon seaward symptom, shopped to suitcase hooligan or hortatory altitude to guzzle choleric aloof.

Minted inner dungeon clap atop adjournment vials, plopping propwash interleave aloft, cropped scarecrow copter chipping bleep of corner-cutting scuttled scuttlebutt effusion cash, elective plunking popcorn squelching misty fowl en route to wily seascape colocation tees of apple-oriented baffles, bound to saddled craze confection cumin air.

Gyroscopic hiring fig, nude photonic plutocratic aerosol inaction, clipped to messianic agency essential credo confab par of force-field parried kitchenette confectionary suffix squawk of awkward socket mummery, mule team mystic history, skeletal emotive row house bathmat batman bulge, bought from travellator mastermind magician.

Ahh, the feel of finally in smoothest emptied vesicle, vehicular particular, imperfect sectioned tangerine, swallowed serpent scenery, turning doomsday crewcut climber, criminal galoshes squeaking in sane colonic go-cart.

Implied mutation motherhood, milky Moscow Piltdown cure of tongued escutcheoned pastry board, chalky swallow landing spatter capping astronomical.

Silesia in Hyperion

Swiped eyewash, angst alone, alluvial luminary watchman falling steeply into effervescent.

Sidecar hometown dome allowance axis showers spring a gradual slide to falsified pride, blustery playwright coprophage, inaudible aluminum habilitation shrift, éclair agglomerating Agamemnon glare eclipsing analytic bolo.

Sky craw clipper mastoid awe, fruitful shingle continental ply, hoop refute deflated tugboat tampering toboggan. Imputation head coat teeny blogger built belonging tutelage acrostic plane.

Silesia in Hyperion, peninsular inflected ease from seesaw north to ambit’s hovering sonorous floral canyon agony, allowed along elucidated colonies of handymen, amended mothballed feeder lines to wrecked immunity, illusory top art, hatched excoriation pledge, imprudent plier pillory escaping blight edema dots above empowered cattle.

2 poems || Philip Byron Oakes

Serial Reminders

Ipso redacto in the reading a slurry of words
buried in ink. Itch to scratch ratios, muddled
tending totems under the dome. Down and
out of harm's way of mending what's broken
to the dirge at the end of the rainbow.
Refugees of a fiction pinched until it bleeds.
Escorting obbligato to irrelevance within the
parameters of a wheeze. Breathless pursuits
over morphean grounds for surrender.
Feigning a balance of powers to realizing the
tug on which the war of the whirls depends.
A clause in concession to the willing's wilt
into form. Paraphrasing the static. A mere
thought at the south end of a shudder. The
door opening upon a time with its limbo in
waiting the speed of light reading the
migration of words on the wall.

Step Two

Fit full regalia to naked in dreams
driven shades of nocturne on a
dime into the pumpkin man

Shoulder epaulettes in the bare
necessity of up and over coating
creases in continuums of yes
mother no father please

Take a tickle out for a stroll under
the covers coercing born again to
say you play to do as done for
from the start

Leave it to leash to rein in a
fugue state of mind beating
matter to the punch in the gut
chasing pain into the ether
holding on by a tincture to
what's nearly but not what's

The Golden Touch

                                  & loaded with plastic
                                        & scraps
                             of wood,        
                                                                  just used
                                                 clothes & old
                                  all the note paper,
                                                       button downs & tees
                                     piled in my treasure house,
                                               weighing down,
                                                                      weighed down
                                            yo ho ho with spoils

                     old pennies old buttons old
                            rags, pencil stubs
                                                 & the bust of a man
                                   gone down in his suit
                                             & tie,
                                                         the last stylish haircut
                                                                  & neat wire framed bifocals
                                      scuffed up in the black snow,
                                                in the grit & grease
                      & all that rubber dust
                                          ground off SUV tires with the dog
                                shit & horse shit
                                                      & bullshit—
                                           what kind
                         of man emerges from that husk,
                                                               pupating now in
                 post-capitalist cocoon,
                                perhaps putting aside
                                               caterpillar entitlement
                         to all the green leaves
                                    on the tree?

                             his silence,
                                            such silence
                                                        profound, really,
                                                  so shortly ago,
                            his megaphone on stun,
                 preaching right & free
                                             for all money,
                                                               digital & yes
                                                               & cheering ever higher
                                                    wax-winged flights
                           between risk & profit & pocket
                                                                 & Santa’s pouch &
                                                                        the leprechaun hordes
                                                  of golden steaming piles &
                                    the pure filament of evil greed
                                                       spun so true by Rumpelstiltskin’s
                                                               trolly paws
                                             while gripping the girl’s
                                                                   thigh with a leer

                                                        it’s all
                              about the money,
                                         the clinging, hairy
                        stench of dirty
                                                 whisking from hand
                                                             to hand
                                            at the

                                                             for me these
                                            rags are gold,
                                                        this paper
                                                                 golden, &
                                                     this pen the
                                         scepter of god
