Jargons (10/2) [trepanned, the wound man stood attention] - Poem by Ulf Stolterfoht

trepanned, the wound man stood attention. armed
with calls to join the knowledge service. that's
how boredom gets routine: studying man's digestion
through the hole in saint martin's stomach.

(but it all goes off right) as will to metaboli-.
sm. wehm¸ller with the national face. opaque-
ly sewn onto thingly relations - to benefit
bergson with some essence. and so much NO must be:

about the f¸hrer nothing occurs to him. except:
‘his marvelous hands'. ec-stasies of delicacy -
sanctified with a dash. pretends physical intimacy. the
‘nevertheless' not on hand betrays itself in a

intumescent ‘iridescence to condescension': something
must be worth redemption! awe before the naked ‘that':
that there is that! is admittedly touching. nature appears
but briefly. digression brings comprehension. surroundings as

outstretched body. border river ‘draws' by painfully,
as is well known. but one might answer: but wait! there's
no but: what's spoken be mute in print! the state
is now the case. a verse that terse. -ly breaks out requires

preparing. better you decide the tack you'll take
when asked: a man of method or rule of the rack.
then voting with your glands: in doubt
the wad, not gusset. now i think we'll close.
