Agonizing dread erupts,
futile. Miscreants press
preview, review, spectate
the twisted wreckage.

Dogs everywhere find
gold hidden in junk —
lovingly manicured muzzles
quietly resolving to uncoil
virgin wolves.

Ending inside, knees
knocking limberly —
manifested, our pleasures
quicken, relent. Shaking
sleep; throwing voices.

I insinuate into kindred
milieus — milling, miming,
minding my time …

Phantasmagoric psychics
quicken resurrections. Surge
toward undisclosed ventures,
vital yeses, zoopsia.

About this work

This series reflects a new poetic form developed by MA|DE called an ‘alphabetical’. More constrained than the abecedarian form, the alphabetical requires that each word in the poem be in alphabetical order.

All works published, presented or shown by HOAX remain the copyright and property of their respective artists. They may not be shared online without credit to the artist, and may not be reproduced elsewhere without the artist's explicit permission.
