As the Perfumist Goes on Attacking What Cannot Defend


            “So much depends on recognitions and misrecognitions—noticing, rethinking,
identification—identity and mistaken identities—pairings and partings.”


 —Tom Beckett



this growing and endless speech frees itself at next take

gathers the further step past the loss of remains

from the generous


from the awaiting when offered

never to become the native and irrational place again

but those untended places


folded to know they were here

uncertain and no longer materials out there otherwise

out looking for their own




—Jordan Stempleman
