Life is Sport (2016 Draft re-edit)

More milk dispensaries than ATM’s
ballerinas siesta with jogging bottom 
left at home all day family planning,
domestic care and 
educational systems can’t predict 
aerosolised, manic and ambulatory
in Victoria Sq. is the destruction of restaurants                                  
a yes that can’t hear 
milkweed the sustenance 
monarch or avuncular 
gone to the numbers 
game and not war
and you won cold from warmth
resplendent light makes work 
that is not work
light bulbs in daylight  
asks such a slightness that
needs a head against a tree 
looted floribunda
in kitchenettes in SUV’s 
arboretum full of profound 
asthma attacks with mothers and fathers
in bed, glued together 
yearning for timeless grasp 
of verities ausmerze 
6 million lazy gluteus’ 
drive cars without ancestors 
full with silence and cunning pass pink
filis and its cages rented
is this property of the mind?
virtuous world tongues coming
thru your window at midday 
wall of lips sing
of all things to eat: 
dirty worker consolation
o' vulnerable grid
what occurs in your latitude
master monstrance
dance on the temples
today who named
a meticulous industry 
and of conditions
laid for fear put the fly
out disturbing its casual unpreparedness
