Benjamin Krusling, “words seen in the sense of portals / the night makes compassion happen / in the sense of one narrow read of ethnic embitterment / wherein the amnesiac field is bled by visual data / where twenty chains dance in the mirror (don q) in the sense of the voice as it were hopping the discontinuous turnstile / — as everyone knows I’m in love / the mind is filled / so one sees space occur visually between two people / space where there’s none there is there ? / in the night where black makes matter happen / where het love is a freaky war machine / & one’s psychosexual nightmare makes phantoms that stack sandpaper in the linen closet / as if the words could be seen doing that / there’s no one here but you / pure present and always tense (Hortense spillers) / it’s night ” from BWR issue 45.1, Fall/Winter 2018
