Necessary 46, 47, 49

By David Harrison Horton

Necessary [46]


Every ante a bluff

social construct

down to the nitty-gritty

an understanding of departure

confused moth

white-washed

the halls of academe

mildewed walls

the books Mr. Lusk bought

the ones he intends to read


[47]

Utah in December

sandalwood

Ulysses

somehow we all fall down

we all fall

mediaeval

saints and sandwiches

a good St. Chris

Aye. And more aye.

Aye like you need it.


[49]

How the heart pounds then stops

bottleneck

how the heart remains

how the trains run on time

picture perfect

regulated shipping channel

contrary current

how it all gets sorted

contingent
