Three Poems in Attrition


William Repass

One could hardly fail to caboodle it, the Bf 109, along with six of one half dozen of the other, into one’s polka dotted bindle. Even in a jet-propelled epoch such as ours, one learns, turns out, to fetishize propellers. With a tip of the cap and a boost up from human progress, even we could simply lift off and,

in theory, uh,

but where to land?

Now here’s a schlock absorber for ya. Cassowary leg. Just pull the tendon to flex the talon. Disembowel your friends.

Embowel the following endowment: monocoque, trailing its vestigial pull chain. Kaput until you smear your lavish daub of glue along the nose cone. Red and swollen, captions coalesce from out of nowhere to concentrate the suck again, flaming out at intervals. Stop watch proof.

Far below, natural gas perfumes a complex of interrogation rooms and cuticles stripped bare. They dream the hang nail’s dream of gliding, of spiraling down to alight upon quilted pasture land. All thanks to profusions of experimental ointment.
