2 Poems from “A FEW GEOGRAPHIES”

Corinth

In a speech to the veterans
of the Peloponnesian Wars,

The President admitted
victory would have been

difficult had he not had access
to Battlefield 3: Aftermath.

Bunkerville

Unperturbed by the
rumpus over the lack
of an erection, cows

crashed his pity party,
ate all his hummus &
cleaned out his chianti.

These poems are from Mark’s chapbook of one sentence poems. Limited edition of 25 copies, each with a unique cover by Dale Wisely. Sample below. Get yours here.

overflows, & I am reduced

to conjugating irregular
verbs in Esperanto.

Flight Design

He is lead forward by their announcing wings.
—William Carlos Williams: Paterson

He turned
to designing air-
planes after
a line from a
WCW poem
soared from the
page, wrapped
its wings around
his neck &
whispered
in his ear all
the secrets
of aeronautics.

Identity management & access control

The premise of the
blues, & of improvisational
music in general, is that

there is a simple comprehensive
idea by which each company’s
aspiring social entrepreneurs

display & bridge existing
interstices within the category
of Household Products.
