tiny words

i once read a poem by neruda, and it touched me to a point that propoelled my interest. and then i read althuzer by vicente huidobro whereby a man parachuted from the sky and the world unfolded into his poetic epic and it took me to a different place different from my ignorant geography of poetry.…






'went to the gas station
opened my mouth
filled my stomach
with gasoline

lit a match
and swallowed it in
-burned myself
smoked with fire

i spread like charcoal
smeared in a kid's hand
stenched and charred black
dispersing to the pristine clouds

deploring the blue vault
as a black shitake flower
suffocating lungs
with a dire myth

then went to the ocean
and devoted myself
to no resistance
and drowned .......

cutting my lips with sharp
visceral shale waiting
for the sharks to knaw
my weightless lips and

useless mouth ..........

while the rest of me
travelled in the bellies
of fish ..............
......................
.......................
.......................
fed by tiny words .
