Thibault Raoult

Another Burn, Another Rhythm Section

Paulo sneaks around—
And that's someone's world.
stay here longer, sign

My hips away, gravitate
Toward three creeks, one
Creek in four acts, a watch

Stretched over five
Invasive valleys. Or
Just let Mama know

Sage something.
What do we do now
Our home's sanz mist?

A shape to be taken up
With Mansour, Mansour
Who forges absents.

Come to think: ask
How her river was
Boogie, bought.
