Two Poems by Fargo Tbakhi

PALESTINE IS A FUTURISM: EMPTINESS

MY HEART WHEN IT IS SUFFUSED WITH ENVYPOISON


LEGISLATURES


THE SUN SHINING OUT OF OUR MOUTHS


401KS OF SALIVATING MAYORS

MY EYES SUFFUSED WITH THE REFLECTED DEAD


GUTTED FISH HEAPED ON THE SIDE OF THE DOCK


THE TUNNEL WE DIG TO ANTITEXTUAL BLISS


501C3S OF EXPONENTIAL COMBAT VETERANS


MYTHS RENDERED IN HYPERDIMENSIONAL COLOR


THE FRIENDS I JETTISONED INTO GRAVITY’S INSISTENT RULE


GARROTTES OF CONSULTING FIRMS


PEACECORPSES OF RIOTCOP THERAPISTS


MY SOUL SUFFUSED WITH PHOSPHORESCENCE


MY SOUL IMBUED WITH THE PEACE OF WILD MUSTARD
