FAST

If he’s the rock, then I’m the water.
If he’s the water, I’m the wind.
If he’s the wind, I must be moonshine

driven in wavelengths to rock.

FASTENER

One as is as another as.
One with is with another with, and one

against’s against all others. Of the ofs on earth
just one alone is chosen. So the man

can’t help his fastening on many
(since the likes of him like

look-alikes)… When the star-shower crosses
the carnival sky, then the blues of the crowd try to

glisten, to match it; and two who work late
in the butcher-house touch, reaching

just the same moment
for glue and for hatchet.
