what does a mechanism look like? what shape does a tool take?
when gears turn
what were cogs
from where does change take its form? from what charge?
in what reflections
are the next and proximate
a weapon is worth its weight in its lack of necessity.
to be of no use is a bullet’s ultimate goal.
dust on triggers – the reward/
if not peace
what archaisms have crept into tomorrow? from what images were they cast?
a switch back/forth off/on
a mold for more
circuits connected to work
in somewhere/out of some place
continuity has an origin in transformation
progress an industry of revolt/
a ride around circles
a drive along a diameter
to tell about where the circumference will lead
but also where it’s been
how a spiral can be followed up or down
how a spring makes the old clocks become current
and continue to pulse
