SCOTT HAMMER IS AN ALCHEMIST & Matt Hart & Marc Paltrineri ARE HIS ELEMENTS

Scott Hammer gives us ‘ a thing that is like a reverse vacuum,’ and is also very (identical to) great poem, in response to Matt Hart and Marc Paltrineri and their excellent universes in ILK SIX:

 

WHEN A READER HAS JUSTICE

I.

the hills have
steps into a forest

louder than
another way to say mother
recorded

we ring home
with infections in our antlers

you can listen for the end here

II.

you
shoot me some sunflowers
and six kittens shot

big love surprises

country star caught
dreaming of murder

winter thoughts
in country tornado
and of what would happen

in my yard full of darkness

sheriff says no charges without first
denying its existence

III.

I can fathom
almost summer

you can file terrible questions
and answers

horror show
call this the news
the camouflaged cloud

full of guts

a six-pack beginning
into folders of your devil’s throat

thank you a lot
for I accept

the vacuum of ghosts.
