plein [N] — (ii)

the lines rise like an urgent dog
you know that’s just fucking silly
they’re merely zagged
if that
stairs angled up
flat bits for recover

i’m still where the dog was towed
the zigged’s the pompidou
outside on the in
great art and funnels

unfortunately a headache
makes me unsympathetic
to the conversations
that have chosen
to hold themselves
