Down in the Mouth

Down in the Mouth

Down in the Mouth

And the job is only half finished.
On paper, the worst is over, smaller niche players
are contributing to that.

A new Spanish-language spot shows
a group of men playing dominoes
like leaves on the sea announcing landfall.
Why the yo-yo move? Why,
it is hard to tell where to begin.

At the best, we can scarcely make our faces passable, though
we torture them with a thousand slops and washes,
and even thus we have much ado to get the man to care for us.
What will become of her then that wears a thicket upon her face?
“I will have mine plucked off hair by hair among the Moors,
rather than not free you from yours.”

But have a care another time of sporting with justice;
for you may meet with some in an office, that may chance
to break your head, while you are breaking your jest.

I have told you the truth; which will always prevail
over falsehood, and rise uppermost,
as oil does above water.

What’s the meaning of better?
The better synonym’s what?

What’s the meaning of both?
Both meaning a three people?

What’s the meaning of right?
Right synonym’s what?

Better early than late.
A better position.

I don’t know both those girls.
Both the boys passed the examination.

Call him on the telephone.
He called me from Paris.


Stop bothering me.

Father and dad is the same thing,
a bird has many feathers.

I gathered the students:
Let’s go to the bathroom together.

I’d rather go home.
Are there any other?
Not that one another one.
Mom and mother is the same thing.

I don’t have any money.
I have nothing.

Merely the Author Using Handy Language

Merely the Author Using Handy Language

We can have no idea how often or on what scale such
names have dropped out of sight.
We should not know it had happened here had not
a few frivolous, intoxicating nullities chanced to
survive and to be reported.
Very likely, page after page, we have not the slightest idea
what was present to the mind of Gardens, the sheer audacity
of whose umbrapoeia holds together impenetrable
remarks about corn-ringed promises which
for all we know may have been
promise-ringed corn
since the syntax permits that understanding,
and may even have come to the American mind from Mexico,
grain-boundary and word-bond.
There is no way to tell.
Sometimes we can tell something.

Athletic wit: the etymology is balbuzie, a stutter in the
lingua franca of paperback antipsychiatry’s
“conditions of possibility” and “resistance to all authoritative readings.”
Gardens wittholds this indiscretion till the penultimate “ward,”
where attention to detail must rhyme it with the daughter’s limping
dance in a passage written (but not published)
two decades prior.
