NAT MARCUS






MECH


Will tacks against my body’s bet. Astral wind might similarly run metal skin off

a galactic freighter. Tail of a comet, I sweat pure light.

How many rooms were there

in the fever? How many times would some

sun be on the ground of the Sonnenallee,

pouring oil after

oil?

Orbit what I can only intuit: mech I pilot’s misshapen, make a lodge of labor, fling out a Ron Trent track

there to forget I’m in a cockpit, corner wind, corner wind in hopes of wind bearing its own corner,

hoping such a turn will assess me while

formulating ratios in my sleep

to disband hope altogether.

When does the future you once envisioned this body to host you in end?
