Today Is Work by Ben Purkert

Today Is Work
I’m searching for the right verb
for a dead frog. I want something
large but not so full it floods
my eyes. The verb should stand
on its own without support
from viewers like you & you
really are a viewer, it’s just
I’m concealed by a series of
tall buildings & significant life
events. If I reach you, call it
lifting a finger & driving it
along your skull. I like surgery
to be light. I like a cradle
overflowing with baby gifts &
stuffed-animal aliens, lime-green
to the touch. I’m really happy
for you, for your offscreen
special effects. I want you
exploding like a bridge.
