Christopher Rizzo; Insomnia Auditions

This one out in the interim check
a part of what and how o'clocks

a key they call minor inscape margins noting

a short straw pulled

no reach for next reason

a role for no one but yourself
curtain drawn by light

panes raw dawning

Weak weekday on the drift and sly

then wake to say pistils
opened to alighting an uncomfortable lie

put down the night word

hoarse is the radio
lead throat to silencio but

what keeps awake human static

draft's cold sluice

sharp's intangible

To one extent death

let go into wind a sheet
music for when

windlass whirls in morn

worms and sheaves
segmentations segues

brevity a breath

What left
to leave

a space as much

to keep at

Pace nights dream wedge unreason

regress to one part rust and the rest
waste one more

ticks tick more slowly now than else

less feeless
than doldrums beat

all the king's men didn't want to

a ruler's increments don't
star the lineaments

Orion made of stops
