White orange - Xanax Pop, by Lewis LaCook


I dress out of season
for these trees. The coolest wedge
of an april moon
drowns my tongue in a fury
of budding. Such solemnity
she limns through what she wants
to believe: as if there were
nothing between her but
the sky and the poem, staggering
--"Young, dumb, and full of cum"
A man spoke to them from
lying on bascule bridge, asked
"You okay?"
Yeah, I guess. The end of her
umbrella smells
of burni ng hair along
the guts of clifton ave crunk
mother loose, knows
karate
--There's Sirens Back There-
"You got some nice things,
mr or mrs America; I like
throwing them at you"
You don't know what
a badass motherfucker
I am. I gargle sliced moonlight
sets little fires licking
the hair she so
ardently believed in.
It's true she'd heard those
birds before:
"--fucking the shit out of
you mom
ffucking, fucking it
fucking the shit the shit
the shit out of your mom

A precious fluid


A precious fluid The lamp swings back and forth, raking its yellow light across my unwashed head. I tried to hold sleep in like a precious fluid, something I needed to breathe with; instead, cats howled through the morning. This goodie case contains all our shame. I make sure to eat your paprikas as soon as I jump out of bed, to slather my morning breath with onions. Without coffee, cigarettes taste brittle, acrid: paper dissolving to blister on the chafe of the lips. At the height of seeing these angles, seraphim measured out holograms of lovers long dead to sunshine, long morose like wetly-packed bread, and I laughed while tied to the bed, mussing softly her insides with a plugin or with messy code. How many times has something stopped working? Before these doors rattle open, along the slipperest of buttery etchings, tubers tie our eyes together just below the soil, and bulbs burst.
Crazed with light, and not
harder than pert alms.
Yeast tempers our blood

King's Woods : The A-history of Lorain, Ohio - a data-driven networked hypertext by Lewis LaCook


King's Woods

data-driven networked hypertext

by Lewis LaCook

2007
PHP/MySQL, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript

http://www.lewislacook.org/kingswoods/index.html

/King's Woods/ is a data-driven, networked hypertext poem that utilizes information about both the history and present of the city of Lorain, Ohio, and grows with each subsequent user's experience of the work. It's a poetic response to the city, and as such many of the work's features are dependent on it; the positioning, length, and opacity of certain elements rely on weather information about Lorain (the current temperature, the days until the next full moon, etc)...

I saw a burning car on 28th Street - Xanax Pop, by Lewis LaCook


These details and their temporal degradation
spit stillness and reciprocal snow
At night, carillons scream like gulls
streaming through sexually-bruised skies
and lighting on the relief of faces
You smile as if this were understanding
The fire department, slow to respond, hungry
slide as if on strings down the street
and reach a conflagration. Somehow
we're holding hands, maybe
to ward off the vicious pink of the clouds
Anyway, we're in love, adjacent
and content as per this series of treaties
