Five Poems by Austin Miles

Five Poems by Austin Miles

 

 

Futures Insectoid + Worm-like

the insects cannot cash

 

            as long as my screen is cracked

            + my battery is so trash

 

hellgrammites cannot either

            in this water

 

w/ tire + television     

            rusted

 

 

I live in the world for free

most perfect advertisement—

            i am in love w that ad

 

when i crawl around glen echo ravine

            i think of that ad

 

the ad becomes me

            as i think of it

 

playing on my nice tv

            my nose becoming my eyes

            my tongue becoming my eyes

            my nerves becoming my eyes

 

 

Untitled 1

@ the fuckin shopping center

                       

                        trying 2 buy some camping “gear”

 

                        so i can be a vagrant

 

                        in a nearby ravine

 

 

Untitled 2

should’ve been a sun

 

            tho those posh suburbs

            how are they lived in?

 

if i’m not anywhere i’m in a car

 

 

Finally, and not a moment too soon, sympoesis

 

i hope i get a serious

            “disease”

   2 seriously

wake + shock away

 

the i of autonomy

+ give up 2 my tech + earth

+ dissolve + reconstitute dissolve reengage
