I sit, I sit up
	I eat, I eat up
		I kick, I kick up
			I jump, I jump up
U look, U look away
	U dance, U dance away
		U smile, U smile away
			U fly, U fly away
		I was U, where there was nothing else
				to see
	    for U were I, to see nothing but there is to C.

Sci-fi Comedy/Dance
, by

Dance your toe on a pair of stolen lips,
	A magnificent falter,
		Rolls up the stoned hips.
Black is the arm and leg,
	White is the yolk and egg,
		Never before noon,
			To sit on your bottom and beg.
Move around like a man hit high,
	All the sweat is becoming dry,
		For to erect your last bent toe,
			Swell those tips like a daytime pro.

		A human mouth unrestricted

	Sparkling little people, moving left, moving right,
	A truck of them, running over, another truck of them,
	The Banquet is in your head, the noise becomes the music,

	It tickles.
		From the tip of your umbrella,
			To the tip of your toes.
	You step on a splash,
		Splash on a step,
			And nobody knows.
	It tickles,
		From the tip of your toes,
			To where everyone goes.

Histoire(s) du cinema, by Jean-Luc Godard

	every scenary upon a retrospection
	into every man and his wife and 
	every woman and her life, distilled
	brewed, fermented on a flatbed flat
	bread baked fine grain, fine gain,
	as to tonight's dinner, who else
	is not coming because of the flu?

- The gambling house where no one plays.

, by

K wants to slide into the hole,
	and stays there all night.
		But his turn is turned over too many times
S cannot wait unless her pillow is not ready.
H moves the pieces and decides to piss on it,
	only to find out K has already done so.
So perhaps the pleasure can be liquidified,
	upon L's request that
		her shaking was due to pure chances.
So it's not until later that K finally slides into the hole.

- A travelers' etching.

, by

Coming off Toronto Airport
	Realizing the sun is from the wrong direction
		Looking for the famous mountain
			Seeing snow instead forming the fountain
I take off my glasses
	Walking towards the rails
		Seemingly unhinged from each other
			Telling me the hope is not yet under
So I hop on the train
		And find on the other side
				The clouds taking off its cover.
