Maybe a maker makes
another out—by the mark
of the mechanism—
keyboard cabaret—
clown in love with his club
(one foot's spondee).
I turned it over

in my sleeping head—
that fallow feeling—
pillow a numbset's
handskull till

from the fidgeting synapses
rose an REM of
ultivated answer—

eye on a stem—the
glancer born to blow
by way of aneurysm—
at what altitude or depth,
what certitude or asterisk,
nobody seeing
could see through—

the star was visibly
newfangled, brimming
from a wave or cup one was
to drain or fill—who knew?

Sidewise it angled, and shone up.
