MORGAN VO

The Green Gel

accruing facial motives

convinced

by merely signs

I know to follow

a subway’s take

of memory

connected brains on

thaw

electric haze aria

mooching threads off

buried power line

mind you’ll need

it free of any art

clear the place

of dreaming

cats & dogs

you’ll have to struggle

for hollow space

to stay impressed

no matter what piece

comes scuttling out

we’ll need the head’s

rest for other
