Minor Bones, Restructured by Aaron Kent

News perspective concerns advertisers,

(it’s ok)

you are my relevant target audience

– too surveyed; slush pile shush

file away

slow news days are currency like familial love

as daily representation (

oblivion one-on-one with the trash) our means

of love allow us to discredit. Favour

my father’s clone;

I am melatonin symptom –

matrimonial channels


‘Sterile surface – rebate costs of


shin & splint.’

Report back: minimal interest;

circadian rhythm bleed me dry: entranc’d

to first hearing, sharing is shaping

is manipulating,

strong-arm tactics are barbaric refuse.

If my family could see me now (hush,

the baby is asleep

and you’ve been coaxing me

feverish for twenty

minutes) could see familiarity now.

Father is front

page news,

too old to be worth the novelty

of breaking minor bones.

Ristretto every morning and Lysine

– convince myself awake

and not a symptomatic lapse –

familiarity is intimacy and

melatonin please bleed me
