78 RPM In the back of the junkhouse stacked on a cardtable covered by a ragged bedspread, they rest, black platters whose music once crackled, hissed with a static like shuffling feet, fox trot or two-step, the slow dance of the needle riding its merry-go-round, my mother’s head nestled on my father’s shoulder as they turned, lost in the sway of sounds, summer nights and faraway places, the syncopation of time waltzing them to a world they never dreamed, dance of then to the dust of now BY JEFF DANIEL MARION

What makes that fox so grabby for the stars, Begging like boys do? I meant to fully Gild that lily, till less like virile Mars It’s clepd the pansiest of pansy, The caducous calyx of a poppy. Cuz, step into these arms where you belong A coup at the prospect of this lording, A gleam in the gloom with serpentine song— The phosphorescent tide’s mine to lavish upon. O stop me at the very vestibule— Before whom, and in what habit I speak I watched them use their meat to call me fool. Someone’s cage is aching at the seams, The noisome idle falls to dirty dreams— Thus the flummoxed drunk of xem will coil And I’ll learn the real, or it’ll learn me, Making free with the Italian model The single summer shower mano à mano. The proverbial number of angels That could’ve fit on the head of a pin Are crying to the myriad angles, This glassy labyrinth we happened in Will not undo the errancer I’ve been. Soon the swancrest, the feedcrest, my distress Will feign to fuck the furlonged mannequin— At what—punishing pace we undress This crapshoot idée fixe and its yahoo mistress. Fictive trees harsh the billow of my cape, All kind of lovers crashed rubbernecking. The fishes on the frontispiece were draped In your leafy worded velocity. You whisper, London has no more fog for me To whit, my darksome peachpit! storms above —A buckler to them that walks uprightly— Will not enforce this porno hand from glove Or diminish one jott my vegetable love.
