Cameron Lovejoy


typography performs         in the amphitheater at dusk


the moon a compact

disk on repeat, repeat


customers of customary margins


open air


open sky of pink cirrus moving slantwise


someone takes a photograph

someone turns a phonograph

someone makes a homophone


of the setting sun


the amphitheater is a yawning mouth, featuring


the apertures of letters,


the openings of the c or the s signifying space or


the “a” but not the a

in italics


or the letter O—at all


so much information moves through the opening

of an eye


the brain like a sponge

with all its little holes, trypophobia’s


typo phlegm, bubbles

in a cup of coffee






oooooooooo        the overture


begins, filling

the wind with swords


the audience


gawks, a head of lotus seeds
