Vito

 

restless
desk
stalks
interior
jumps
barrier
old aisle
st marks

what is
vito’s
episteme?

epic
piss
stream
meme

& he didn’t do
it, poetry

he did the silver rod
the papacy downfallen
but all else risen
he did mojo magic
quick wit’s
alien bite
& revolution
turning a million ways

what did I learn

transmit
all vibrancy
a body
can take
holy, holy. holy
