Smith 1983  [©smith, from]

Original Cinema

Small signs of logic pool to larger sockets,
Sprocket rules of flow.

Autumn snap cracks cross
Yes no boundary, now then grime
And the even Steven myth.

Add in
   Coffee rotation
   Bee pollen white crystal
   Hotel Babylon
   One million years TV
   Suburban life halfsounds
   Fungus eyes
   Hotdogs with blood and pus
   Artists of perpetual perception
   Fat bottom womyn in glass bottom boats
   Nature and man gone wrong
And this war of little mist
And reefer sticks
The two soul sham
Of wham baam action ma’am
(long way virgin slim to glass ceiling fan).

This bad boy business nuzzles
Nose near own navel lint
Bug belly blood in amber
Waves of shame
Dinosaur dreg dynamo hum
Blood rough ready rumble
Reflecting clone,
Trade in tiny tins.

Liberty’s filthy whore Profit
Loss enough for now.
