Alan Sondheim


it's time to worry -
the bone is nonexistent -
what carries may atone
for what has no existence -

these are remarks and marks -
in a hurry, raining -
what tarries in training
is nonexistent -

i'd look farther, no matter -
kill father, no mother -
the slurry of the world
was gone, is nonexistent -
is fine, is nonexistent -

the sieve of the world portrays
the subjunct, or what would rather -
be without bother, unraveled
is skin, is nonexistent -

the mark is speech's token -
talks and murmurs, choked -
and broken, yoked to you
is bone, is nonexistent -

you are nonexistent. i spoke -
and wrote you, fallen, crashed,
and dead, you keep speaking -
stop this speaking now -

you speak, this dashing -
about the flow, re-peaking
flowers, flown - nonexistent
this speaking, this flow -
stop now, stop this speaking -
