Mistake, Mistake

(Boniama Yayama)

"For Sail" is a life-sentence:

to man err choir
by mouth of sand
in hurling wind gray eye
by losing
heads of states
unknown

to man err choir
by lumens of house
in fugues by thunder's light
by seeping
the secret limbs
paused in the blue

to man err choir
by concrete floating haze
that naked boat of
frozen blood
whose trailing and useless
hair
is the sentiment
compressed into
a galaxy

and shorn
it makes an apex
of recycling dances
wherefore the fevered pucker
gleams
fibers
that are once again
animation's nuptial visage

this part doesn't make sense
as the piece
and where it came from
a gray foam of lint
was forced through the open window

empty white porcelain bowl
whose intestines
are drowned
in blue oil

Trinidad Karie
Land of the humming bird
taking the organs out
and washing them
in the blindness

(Dama dama dama)

As early as 1640, settlers in Antigua
cultivated the Black Pineapple
near English Harbour, and they have been
cultivated ever since on the south side
of Antigua, particularly near Cades Bay
and at Claremont.
