Poem of the Day: Untitled (to David Antin) by Rus Khomutoff

to David Antin

My red heaven ecstatic gathering
stretching out the grandeur of all mirrors
prism spaceship superstar in the city of names
flashdance, the insistence of the wish
This time around I want to be the end,
quasar supermass iron form myth
silence, that shadow of language
in which everything is nevertheless said
digitalis timetunnel,
a wild white flow
Critical orifice as hyperdecadent hyperfantasy
teenage blood repetition
like the taste of soft epiphanies
tangled in delicate words and wraiths

Two kings. Two princes. One queen. The true story of five aristocrats separated by time, culture, and circumstance -- all of them bound to the United States by accidents of history and left to hope for a tomorrow better than today. Prepare for a vision of the American Dream as few others have ever seen it.
