Sarah Anne Cox

your obedient servant

typically the genitals would be missing
reconstruction on a grand scale
turmoil in the fields
a list someone would keep
bent toward
we had not yet learned the rule
we had not succumbed
part of that kneeling was transitory
what would last past tuesday
what remained unholy
if it did swim it learned nothing
and flooded grain into itself

urban without forecast
the net of will
who walked into the desert
who lived between offers
those that were in need
sought hysteria
we began so many with letters
purchased franchise
the letters burned to the ground
we cannot reconstruct this
the "s" removed, the "t" added late at night
we became unsure of our own motives
thus it began for we were hungry
and among all betrayal

the canon demands a form
to be weighed out
they would not speak for years
a secret life knitting
nets for a catch names
of fish garbled over a telephone line
something that towers over you
those that have been promised
those that were compromised
assumed there was more than function
their own fertility
as if leaves on trees
as if cogs in wheels
