After André Breton

“Surrealism will usher you into death, which is a secret society. It will glove your hand, burying therein the profound M with which the word Memory begins.”

– André Breton, Manifesto of Surrealism (1924)

this winter        

the crows are mute        

their feathers        

are of lead        

a bloated moon        

is draped         

in cardboard clouds        

&         

I am         

indifferent as concrete        

I am         

indifferent as asphalt        

I am         

stuck, inert & moving        

I am         

a statistical paradox        

&         

the spark        

is elsewhere        

this winter
