the roll of a lost marble

we work to explode it
diagram
work to corrode
diaphragm
we are here to breathe
and to leave the lethe
bring it on
like phlegethon
not go and drop this
like a stagnant cocytus

doing well
like a river of hell
like a wrapped flame
like a tapped game
like a zapped name

we move into whisper
constellation star glitter
suck the sun and it’s lemon bitter
throw the jacks and watch them skitter
there’s glass from the mirror to gargle
the role of a lost marble
