caffeine withdrawl... 

over-glut, the irremediable gluttony
that cleans out wants and dust...

information as in where-it's-found
issues of the culpable that removed time
from the conditional...

whose doubling up of gloom and funny papers
whose posing wherever the climate chalices
     retain a weaned folder of terms
whose apposite going to the cafe at night
     wide-nosed or hat-in-checked...

gestural, fertile
verbal sumptuous retaliative
     adventurist natural
what it is...
