GLEN ARMSTRONG



World's Fair #8


Powder is a man
In the slipstream of smooth writing

Speed is a secret
By which lines mask the problem

The soul is known to squat
As if nothing ever rushes

Down a steep hill to kill people
In various ways

Oh do not cry

One kind of wax and two half-shells
Invite the goddess

Back to her place of prominence
Incense and pepper spray

A dry place where the future settles
In its simulated suit

And bowtie / do not cry

Near the end of a race of giants
Soft energy insists

On storms and however
Much the sirens scream

Visitors gather / do not cry

At exhibitions lit to further humble
The night

Whose latest attempts to host scandal
Were barely reviewed.
