Adam Fagin

from vaulted forms


a year a dark one streams

the city surrounds



itself with televised courage

this affords a view



of an entire generation

in the desert—



one the tabloids dubbed “gordy”—

those hoping



to catch a glimpse

take a picture



revealing the whole

scene was a setup—



a popular retreat

where parking is discouraged



(but some do it anyway)—

is a vacation a monster or murder?


the crime was a plea

placed in police custody



        *



mind blowing

the public thought



across a shapeless city—

form is a dictatorship



conveniently based

on the population’s



use of culture

as disguise or plot—



the world’s only disappearing

which may or may not be convenient



since the country


(a vast notable country)

was last seen in a spaceship exploding
