T &U LASH YOUR NIPPLES TO A POST HISTORY IS GORGEOUS by JARED SCHICKLING

JEFF HARRISON Engages

t&u& lash your nipples to a post history is gorgeous by Jared Schickling
(BlazeVOX, Buffalo NY, 2011)


[each line below is an excerpt from Jared Schickling's t&u& ...]


I would write
artsy woods
no drafts to the land

even to
shepherd
things refer to the air

book
but it was not shepherd
hadn't changed a
blue sky
to front matter

a style
brown sweet
bone
sweet
silences noise

to be anyone
by any other name
but not shepherd

this corridor
under the road
reads
the ink you

a day in the
artsy woods
a rat in the other
artsy woods

snakes
in the
artsy woods
likely iron

procedural
with bloody snakes, again

snakes
raising
for everyone night

blue sky
undone
tactical

to know
night
and do nothing more
shepherd
