Patrick Pritchett



The heresy of laughing out loud

is sharper than the fall of souls.

Granted, high and outside is also a species

of the less than supernal, like looking

into a camera and seeing the work you wrecked



The problem of the modern is the problem of the microphone.

The amplified voice carried across bleachers, barrooms, 

elevators, loading docks, crypts, the dream of speed lifting

the body out of itself & into its long arc and swoon --


To fall, a perfect circle, in a field of flattened grass.
