how to draw seven circles
after Seymour Chwast

open with the mouse model & close your
eyes. walk with arms extended for fresh
exposure. coryphées feted in a bipartite
division strike each chair in the cunning
little machine before you bump into one
who bears a burden & longing & cry thru
which you entered: an exit. this erasure
of featured ears composes the first two.

the sestet eases the load. you have fallen
but they’ll cushion & convey before faces
touch. eyes soft targets for two more. lift
torches in the curve of a baby grand while
origins tail footfalls. deconstruct the nose
for an unexpected duo. now void the crown.
