Agnosia

 
a
lateral bone knobbled
ends akimbo space
enough for dog's 
mouth
split or shatter
a
tenon pulled hunger
constructor bearer
pushed weight 
shudder
a
dragged last audacity
forms 
aldehydes of sweat
flaring to nosedove 
a
burst spread eye 
absorbed from the
girded light ray
a
new last push
begun 

mythic stickened daughters
apply arithmetic each
tick flips to new form
the cannon of cellular
automata
the cacophonic
blast torrent
awash awash its
noise unships
slowly into
rank at last
a sense can
a hand exists
to grasp toward
for the first
creation of
mountains formed from
the teat-milk of a
dead world androgyne
refined

the sky wheeled
and now imagined a
purse with one coin
removed
one coin remains
removed
yet one coin
abides watch
wide-eyed but at
some point attention
shifts from coininpurse
to coininhand 

the
shift
is a glorious traitor
it sneaks between
neurons with its hands
pocketed and no footprints
it isn't wherever attention
is it is the empty space
in the head labeled
wonder it is the fifth
spot at the table it is
the friend who never
returns calls it is
the beam you cannot look
upon the beam you can
only
look along in
a darkening woodshed
the last light for
blind eyes the 
unmeasurable gap
between order the
unsensible
primordial reverberation

call it
the space between
thoughts
call it
ignorance
call it
science
call it a
shell game
call it
magic
call it what
you will.
