David Appelbaum — the bicycle man

Poetry

the bicycle man

pumps
the universe
made of strings
plucked
like an Irish harp

not certain
of a voice: om
he splices
two streets together
for a high
C

mi

dark matter
fills his lungs

black hole-gullet

errancy
is in his delivery
pouch

mine?

light contracts
red torus to
green

his is this event
the next
epoch
twitters

the same
note

flat
