Consonance V

the question of the matter of
what we prevent ourselves from

            the matter of from
the rusted iron gate of from

what history welds with corrosion

                        the stuck thing inside
                        deliberately made
                        encouraged to disease

lean and answer the question god dammit

show me the limits of the city
where inside and outside draw
their invisible threshold

                                    tell me
did the gate open out or swing

where is the child with the bronze key
sewn into his breast pocket
                                                under what
lake is he standing with eyes bulging
            his fish hand at his side           reaching
prepared to give to you
if you ask

not question or answer                                                it
