a nut
rattles its shell

how far will this get
before the hand shuts down?

tufts wane

laughingly rhymed

okay I'm drowned
in "the green drunk
slightly spring" dawn

and stop no bullet
or anti-immigrant
bumper sticker
ruins the fucking poem

    I wish the last line could hover like marginalia with uncertainty where it's pointing.

    Thanks for the comments, Mark.
    In this one, do you mean that the last line would be set off from the previous one, so that the grammatical continuity was less strong? Or something else?

    Both these drafts are meant to have highly variable margins, but it's a pain to format it in Blogger...

    Yes, but set off where exactly, I don't know -- so there could be multiple potential grammatical continuities.

    I wonder, considering format pain, which I feel, what a mere line space or two would do.
