Wingless

Wildlife falls extinct inside tubes
burning to the touch
 
moaning wings slide down my windows
like lucite tears . . . look here:
 
spiders somersault from attic ceiling
like pubic hairs
 
rat genitals scream across sky cathedrals
 
the pure logic of massacre strokes
the corporate heart
 
shark blood breaks aqua tides
in rushes like flowers offered up from young hands
 
horns of mountain sheep hang from subway fans
 
Airconditioned blood drips like rosaries from}
skyscraper to the cosmopolitan eye
 
do bison stomp snowmobile?
 
aborted calves drip fetus flesh
across barbecues uptown
 
man paints marsh skies with lead,
wingless . . . his head between his legs
 
finely clipped poodles dreaming in penthouse
amphitheatres across mother’s molding furs.

(1975)
