Invite the Holy Spirit to be part of your activities. Call upon Him before you even start: “Come, Holy Spirit!” Deep down you know you don’t exist, but you’re too afraid to admit it. As Baudelaire translates in Gemini 10, The Complete Poems of Augustus Major, as a teen dies days before graduation—a missing manhole cover flips over her convertible. In my heart I believe you. In my heart that’s why we’re friends. The reason we were talking. That’s it.

for the new Whitney, 8th fl balcony
the brushes on the revolving doors are stiff
Hudson air more up here than Riverside Park
the view is as good as it gets
and it is fast and free

the macaroons are not very good
either they haven’t rested enough
and haven’t formed a skin
or i didn’t mix them enough

Cézanne painting with the same eye
and the same soul a fruit dish, his son,
the Mont Sainte-Victoire

this entire park but w a highway thru
terrifying but also thrilling
the entire industrial revolution
speeding past ur face
a dog walking on its hind legs
and going w the walk signal
a dog walking on its hind legs


a landscape and heaven, and the wind
(the same wind that the clouds feel)
and flying birds the bright rivers
and the turning mills
stars would fall to their knees
and who will ever answer them?
cities towers and bridges and un
building them up again
suddenly in an instant!
the smallest thing under this sky—look:
and the lands grow distant in ur sight
u are silent, it says for you: i am
i am the day, i am the dew
u though are the tree

it is the waking hour of being next to u
of the black dress you wore to bed every night
of sleeping again and waking again

”sex, which mixes up the numbers among people
was my best was my best

so i did so, while thinking of u
almost read to u these lines out loud:

to the national cathedral, where
woodrow wilson and helen keller are
to the supreme court equal justice
under law rules like no photography
no reading no sleeping to the national
gallery w almost all caillebotte’s works
in a travelling exhibition including
paris street ; rainy day to the bronze
of mercury in the rotunda and liberty

so little kindness in this world
not enough to go around
and never where it would expect to be found
often unrecognized
but genuine, and when felt

a really old man shouting on the subway
reading from a wwii diary
on a packed uptown 6
on like a saturday afternoon
i drank a tall glass of water in
the middle of the night and i feel great

even though ancient egyptians were very
different from each other they grew to
resemble the art of their time

it all tempts even the bird watching u eat lunch

the same as taste w/out smell
there are five distinct emotions
and nobody ever eats
in the center rising forever
leaves against a night sky
falling or flying that never gets anywhere

one sunny day in the schoolyard
“hey!” i said to aiden and saequan “do
you want to play a game?” they said ok
“but what?” said aiden “i know how
about tag?” said saequan “ok” we said
they start running i chase after they
saequan hides behind the tree aiden
hides behind the tree too i took a break
because my legs were tired saequan and
aiden ran around the schoolyard mrs. stark
blows the whistle and we got on one knee
then we went inside

turn over the pillow to the cooler side please
it is more, it is hot “television, instead of the
boob tube, is going to be ‘i know u’ tube” says
an advocate, “can we crack a window”

if u really wanted to know what happened
u’d have to do a lot of forensics
a lot of research and investigation
and u may not find out even then

that’s rule number 1: know the numbers, know
what u deserve and then seek to get that
if it’s not got? well, then leave it sit and that’s it
no rush, no panic.

a baker repeatedly dips a blue bracelet into raw
dough while mixing it

young people have this warped view of what it is
because of time, money,
it’s entirely makebelieve

and so i did and, while thinking of u
i almost read to u these lines out loud:

it is the waking hour of being next to u
of a roommate cooking breakfast
on the same day we visited
the deputy chief’s home
two businessmen visited
the deputy inspector’s
and a team w/in titan
investigated spherical wheels

i love it bc i love light above all else
and all love light above all else
for we invented it
w/out it people would soon grow bored

cold out in a tshirt bc
summer’s out but not yet out

in youth, to love sensually in riper year, not to be led by the hand into wretchedness to love no more in the body of the spirit than its beauty for since a kiss is a knitting together both of body and soul, it is feared and as we are whirling round in the urn of the spirit, this is a basis art for itself is a bad joke so keep in mind the torment of absence without suffering in your heart beats the treasure that sweet flame that soft incense which u imagine hurries the flowers of spring the origin of all springs since the first more beautiful than the effect a mirror retelling the same story it always has of so much beauty all other beautiful things are beautiful bc they began from it move mother nature to produce this and that in the march of life in the perfect find imperfection in the dissimilar similarity in enemies friendship in the earth fruit in the sea tranquility in the sky vital light

let’s get that thai food tomorrow again
who knew that restaurants with a C rating
were really the gems, who would’ve guessed
a restaurant with five tables for two could feel so
big inside, you keep saying dan drinks too much
but i’ve never seen it, only after all pleasantly
pleasantries because he’s so british, when
i reach for more postcards i knock
the elephant off your bookshelf
it lands softly on my coat
autumn’s the best time there is
so no my favorite
square isn’t Union
but i do like it sundays
all serene all surrounded
by police barricades

i’m not being polite i’m trying to go
to sleep in my own bed tonight

on the day Mercury finds the Sun
(we cannot even look)

make a wish starfish

a lawyer on one tram recalled a fellow passenger
say upon landing, “o what a wow trip.”

dutchman’s breeches, shooting stars and trillium

who the fuck roots for Lochte

i didn’t get it until after u told me

the pilot got picked up and this is the set

it doesn’t matter what’s out there my eyes
are going to be shut

where does East Williamsburg end and
Bushwick begin

a good friend says it doesn’t
involve the audience

but on april 4 1983 Challenger logs a quiet
almost mundane triumph

“the consensus up here is that we heartily
recommend this for everybody”

a man eating breakfast turns to a
photographer with a question

“did anyone take a picture of the deafening
silence?”

told u the address where we’re meeting

she brought u a llama from Peru u don’t
have it anymore you can’t lose that elephant

reading her postcards on the train
and no one knows


almost unbearable the number of benches
in Gramercy Park

maggie and
louise

they cannot
leave

because
they will be

come the exact
same as me

like the sort of popup flower sales

that happen in Williamsburg

nice for everyone else

but especially for me

like finally finding urself at the end

of a selfystick at the precise moment it

pierces the canvas of a rose

period picasso in the Marais

as if Seattle hadn’t got out of its pajamas in weeks

the Ninja Burglar’s reign of terror is officially over

BESIDE THE DEAD SEA, ISRAEL—
at sunrise the sky and the water seemed metallic silver blue the color of speed

palm trees
ocean breeze,
salt in the air
sand in your hair

a sign along highway 90 says
LOWEST PLACE ON EARTH

subterraneanism is worryingly where i’m feeling most at home
blow a kiss goldfish

in else me and u’re me

will they and beers instead

spoiled you baseball jersey

brush make it California

inside it have C again

british his behavior too

and you can’t coat

time don’t take from care

union on police and i do miss it

a gambit that crested last week

neither of us will have much to talk about
we’ll complain about the stairs

go across the street for five dollar beers and
the mexican restaurant that has guac no salsa

across a spoiled rug it hovers

the question u shouldn’t have asked

it’s not a painting at all but the texture makes
u think it is

spoiler u think that was but it won’t look
like that at all

like i need it to be special

let’s start a fanfic

that people get really into

and write to us about

nobody knows but u and u would know if u
thought about it enough bc i mentioned off
hand to u before u left that i only
remember the night in bits in pieces but i
was trying to remember if u have to take the
green cabs to Manhattan or if we could take
one home

it is also about consciousness

the equivalent of a student pulling a fire
alarm to avoid an exam

i couldn’t tell the driver i only remember the
night in bits and pieces but i was trying to
remember if u have to take the green cabs to
Manhattan or if u can take them from one
place in Brooklyn back home when i realized i
couldn’t tell the driver ur address

didn’t want to socialize

didn’t want to drink

didn’t know anyone at the party

electric eel saliva on the back of my ears

Raymond grew up in east flatbush a west indian
neighborhood of wood framed houses and
brick apartments a few blocks away locals
renamed a corner “the front page”

that jaguar a little bit too much for them uh to continue the pursuit so this suspect is a grand theft auto suspect that uh that jaguar you see there is a suspected stolen vehicle so here again this is englewood here crenshaw boulevard just about a block north of imperial highway an lapd pursuit he’s not trying to run lights he’s just obeying the traffic right now and there’s a car blocking him in and it looks like o! they actually hit him with a van and now he’s on the run he busted through that light because you could see everyone stopped there if you are watching a breaking news story out of la it does appear that we have some sort of police pursuit or chase see the person there does appear to have a headlight on and somebody maybe a couple people could be in this van now one two three three officers one two three four at least four officers

this video being provided from the um fox la affiliate we’ll be coming in out here guys we’re gonna keep a close eye on it for you uh you see officers there in unit still and on foot these men are they did all three appear to be men who ran out of the vehicle is somebody there possibly tackled again user discretion is advised here because you never can know what can happen in the police pursuit situations so yeah it looked like um an actual law enforcement they had uh a big um svu there that tried to box him in and the other one tried to clip him on the other side actually hit his passenger side his rear side now he’s speeding away from them this is what they were afraid of him running through lights he just ran through uh uh a light and uh now he’s he’s speeding so this is what they did not want to happen ok coming up on apache there i imagine they’re gonna back off of him

again now look at this guy he’s going in the wrong lane he’s uh flying through these intersections my goodness and we just lost our uh picture there we apologize but it’s a breaking news situation and so we do also have it we keep it on a delay for you oh he just spun he just had a headon collision we’ve got this shot behind and i don’t know if you can see it but uh we keep things on a delay just because we’re not sure the circumstances of how things are going to play out and we wanna make sure we’re very sensitive to how things uh um what we’re showing you let’s see if we can take that here zooming in very closely here to this two door uh dark colored jaguar here that they’ve been chasing now oh twenty twenty five minutes or so as the police try to rear end it a bit uh trying to kinda get it onto the side here its not successful still that jaguar continues on that driver

continues on here still leading police on this dangerous chase through the metro area this afternoon uh again this west bound lane of parallel parkway and then here again this uh this large police vehicle trying to um kinda pull off some sort of pit maneuver here trying to get it to spin out time to throw another strip out but maybe that’s what lapd has up its sleeve now uh the big issue for the driver if fuel is ok is gonna be the tire situation you see the front left uh jus that’s a rim a straight up rim no rubber there to speak of maybe a few strips still hanging on the back left tire this vehicle if you can imagine it this it seems to be tame driving from what we saw earlier on sharp turn right there there you go passing western and you know that’s what i’m talking about on that vehicle newer jaguar you know i don’t wanna make a commercial for jaguar but good car very profit

you know very high tech and a lot of performance and right now this is probably keeping some of these other people safe out here this afternoon as this lunatic is driving out here trying to keep lapd at bay and he’s kind of doing a good job but while he’s doing that he’s endangering so many other lives working against traffic here’s another one against traffic looks like we’re making a southbound turn i’ll getcha that street right there then you can see this car i would guess that’s an f-type coupe right there very very fast car indeed lapd but you know what the helicopters overhead as we zoom in for a better view here uh lapd is telling us that the back left tire is flat so it doesn’t look all the way flat maybe uh it has been compromised by the spike strips maybe it’s not uninflated to where the driver would want it oh and we so oh look at that and even

ok this is coming to a head he just lost the entire front left uh wheel the rim is now on the ground the whole body of the jag is on the ground you see sparks coming out of this and we don’t know how this is going to end so we are gonna stay live with this as long as we can the wipers are on for some reason the driver’s panicking obviously at this point uh not knowing what to do trying to just hang on but this is not a sustainable situation he was on a rim that rim collapsed and now he’s just skidding along on on the frame of the jag oh whoa whoa ho see that vehicle probably right there just doing well whoa it’s through the red light oh ho ho oh just makes your heart stop when that kind of stuff happens out there anyways two very very close calls right in a row you know that vehicle moving over to the right right there whoa whoa whoa do ho oh there it is he’s out uhuh don’t

think i ever saw anything like that before we’re on olympic he’s there he’s going through those houses working his way back out towards olympic from the alleyway uh officers from the highway patrol not in the area right now but that helicopter overheard oh yes they are oh yes they are they’re right there back on olympic back on olympic he turned uh oh there went the rear end back to the west and trying to say that looks like about eighth street now if i could tell looking at the uh staples center yeah eighth street he’s coming up onto a uh interection here a little bit of cross traffic ahead a real no this is gonna be close boom oh right there big smash just really hit that the car you saw it coming i’m gonna bring sky 5 around so we can see what we have here but he just t boned that car right in the middle of the intersection he’s up on the curb whoa whoa oh that there’s what we were worried about and look at that solid collision there’s a whoa causing another

collision right there people trying to get away seeing this accident that car coming to a stop right now but you know with that type of damage that type of attitude this guy better just do exactly as he’s told officers from lapd they’ve got their guns out we gotta worry about those poor poeple that were in that accident we’re on van ness this is south los angelos yeah crazy crash out here and that second crash that basically was somebody probably watching what was going on hands out the window but you know what buddy it is too late that car is stopped he’s go he’s going into custody for sure i’m hoping hoping nobody else was hurt officers have their weapons out for sure we’re gonna keep an eye on this all the way to the end as soon as that guy is outta this vehicle

i need to move that camera see if those other people are hurt those were some violent crashes out there this afternoons so the guy has climbed out can we take that shot ok there we go there he is uh we do have he wasn’t injured in that accident hands up you can see him screaming to some people um i haven’t seen any law enforcement close in here he’s reaching down for his shoe but not doesn’t look like he has anything in his hands ok it looks like they’re approaching him so what you didn’t see is his vehicle actually rolled and uh he was able to get out of that and now he’s talking to other people and uh of course they don’t know that he’s _static_ um uh law enforcement but now they’ve come in and they’ll be guns drawn as they try to take this guy down full guns drawn

coming up so was that not it’s hard to know they thought that maybe he was in the vehicle and now and um and clearly yeah it looked like he had his hands up i didn’t see anything in his hands there was some confusion because law enforcement didn’t witness that rollover so that they didn’t know that that was him um out of his vehicle but as soon as they realized it was just within seconds they were able to

i heard the helicopters i said oh wow something happened diana thomas tells me she watched the chases breaking news on television as it passed by her place i noticed one of the parents had to run with her baby in the carriage and i said oh my god i guess people would describe it as um as a very scary experience daniel seviano’s family minivan missed being hit by mere inches this woman wasn’t so lucky she owns that maroon colored mercedes she said it was her first day working at a hospital just around the corner meantime sgt bruce with the lapd commending his responding officers the split-second decisions these officers make i have all the faith in the world in em they’re very well trained despite the damage and one woman taken to a hospital people who live in this area tell us they’re just glad the conclusion of this chase wasn’t worse and the suspect is in custody well i’m sure it’s complicated cause they’re talking on the radio and they gotta figure out where he is yeah communicating with their command center and at the same time they’ve got their aerial assets they’ve got their own helicopter that’s up there flying around keeping real good track of him what they could use would be a situation where he could get jammed

the first time goes one mph the whole way
somewhere between a friend friend and a friend
the second it starts to move w the doors open
and doesn’t stop till we all yell
ten degrees hotter than the rest of the world

many find it odd that the septegenarian
would have this kind of approval
but she was not surprised

of course what it is like on its own
only matters in reference to the original

fuck the scary part
mountains in a photograph
tough in the age of almond milk
