Kempton B Van Hoff

Were we the smartest most ornery
fool parade typing faces down
corridor four more often
we push bright charade
on the way down take
lowdown manifesto-
etched newsprint
“hi, Mr. Hyde”
see you do
act on alpha
principle in divisible
eighth of the multitude
tool of news to expedient pedestrian
generals circle municipalities
with a brow cocked down
see you do
move fearfully
through the last
jagged terrace the byway
prior to patching and gluing dreams
back to concretized designs un-tight in giving
on back living pushing island through the tide life
time reinvention there’s a need pressing mention
last earthly destination
see, you do and
see you
