brass rupture

October 12, 2010 12:00AM

i went out back to play and was
buried in a swarm of brass–
trumpets trombones tubas–
ricochet copper waves,
engorged wahahahah,
sub-vibrating glass,
spittle and valves and
prostrate glorious
all surrounded
knees to the ground–
trombones pelting flesh….

amongst the swing-sets,
beneath the slides,
was eaten by the brass and
as an echo frantic and free and
flailing skyward.
