to assist their graduating

Walk towards City Hall &
around the corner to find an
entrance to the Go Gator ride.
You won't be disappointed! In-
side is a crust/neocrust band
with cello & dual male/female
vocals, & fireplace solutions of
exquisite implants that recently

hauled the Vatican over the coals.
Shop at Burlington & all you will
find are pawned shields, now
over-painted with red pigments
on a black background to hide the
designs that were there before.

the tragic mode is archaic

Undermined by public mistrust,
the ethics of language testing
has become a tragic spiral now
facing a small sausage that can
significantly harm sperm quality.
Such an awesome template! It
throws caution to the wind &
into the Penola river whether or

not a tweet was sent. Can impose
the least possible uniformity on
observed conflict & parking at-
tempts with a choral performance.
The subject was later found shot
to death on Renegade Mountain.

After the inserts

she fell asleep in

a dodecahedral

bounded by like an

holographic ante-
lope. Grass fell. It
burned her eyes.

out from ma press


An afterword from Residual sonnets
A great deal of my work is based on stochastic processes, starting with a prompt & using it as a search term in Google, taking a phrase from the search string that results & using that as a prompt, taking a phrase from that & continuing on. You end up with a page of phrases from which you sculpt a poem, & then move on, leaving behind a page of discarded material, rarely looked at or turned over again.

What I have done to arrive at these "residual sonnets" is to go back to those leftover pages, collate them, & use the material there to create new poems, in 14-line form. I had obviously intended to do this on a small scale before, because I found several separate pages with the same phrases included on them. But even with those duplications removed, the bricolage totals over 200 pages, spread across 30+ directories.

This collection contains the initial results from that sculpting.
