Pope Lost Hope
elegant couplets on undulant water
plumb oceanic depths
to pursue fragmented verse. Take a pilgrimage
in Spanish and Wixárika,
in a day or half a minute. Whirl
in regular three-dimensional cycles
the smiles of unmasked, partying glyphs
turn to frowns, and worse. Read
rapid, twined threads of individual thought,
feed of a square’s tweets,
type into a phatic chat,
as if keeping some link to others. Sense the world’s fragility through
unstable French texts
and live in unsteady language that manifests
as an ever-changing word.
stamped out in pagan pentagrams
and face a wall of generated text that
highlights the Christian duty to the environment.
words become toast
disappear into the horizon.

let the limits of its window keep you
bouncing off the walls,
