Accept No Substitutes, You / by Reckon

cork rock

lozenge or cork rock, tonsils or cork rock

hermetically sealed in the basalt basement  

jarred, jugged, seeded  

black gold texas teased (IT)   

hooked on phonics remembering how to read

& move the sexy body in time (and out) 

mutations unhinged doors, voice box minds

unlocked miracles at all the weddbbings  

when all the gods were busy with traffic  

& just the right amount of static


(pioneer women get the picture

fuller across a long lush river fit to feed a wasteland  

the poets have been unleashed  

& they're very very dirty & clever indeed)
