a random other…

flarfish 67: blue bangle tangle

thin sterling, silver cuff, hand hammered
tangled up in blue and i love it!
cord comfortable and fused
more often than you would like?

thorny gold and silver vines
bind you tight in its inexorable hegemony:
thousands of artists toiling for 33
cents an hour in triangle shirt waist
conditioning and fetor

the death dress and identity of an early
viking age… 
* bead * tangle * bracelet *
* womens * everyday * ceramic * 
high polish from low sweatshops halfway
around the world…
or very near your corner 7-11

embroidered on her breast is a pattern
of pink roses obscured by a branding
iron welt

buy it at the gray market stall 
near the canal street subway stop
it can be can be transmuted into a random 

or a random other whose bad luck was
being born on the backside of the globe…

wear it with pride and impress your
impressible friends with your 

order the blue bangle tangle guidebook 
in 12 different languages
order now when a special occasion beckons:
one of my favorite things is going for cocktails

“Sweet is it, sweet is it
To sleep in the coolness
Of snug unawareness.

The dark hangs heavily
Over the eyes.”

— Gwendolyn Brooks / “truth”
