From girding and gridding the ghost organs

j/j hastain












Proceeding by mull. By interlocking appetite. Gluing thorns to the book. Our tears are psychic

roughage meant to inter


on a sill.













Here      which is a bonfire in a boat.













Coming closer and closer to             resonant flourish.












This is the space just prior to the beloved in form. Always already accompanied by brothy or

briny rosettes and boi


who forcefully moves matter. Boi


who has a post-binary womb.
