MORE FRISK THAN RISK by Mark Horosky from Flying Guillotine!



There is only a curb between us and the street

where our minds traipse inside quotation marks. We

recognize our sources of information: fat,

architecture, seeming, church bells, and sweat.

The half-braided-head of woman hangs out of a curse,

a window and into a
metaphor.

We don't deal with language. Maybe the only thing left is attitude.

A flashing like a match stick in closed hands.

A bathtub chained to a street sign.

--from the Book of Risk
