The Cosmic Art of Naming

names know each other
it’s a fact

the difference between 
reality and 
	meaninglessness 
has no name

—that’s your big wheel
road riot 
imperial high 
	chariot

if you look it up in your 
	dictionary
you’ll find a statement of 
what doesn’t exist:

pulpit constellations and
mud-gripped cellos
	self-seeking arrows
the soft delirium of counting
backwards from the number 7
on a mile high Tuesday
ripe with naked radio sounds

Orion is a thought bird 

the stars we’re counting are 
	dandelions 
spelling out their names
