Excerpts from gnōstos, Volume VII (manuscript) of the Grammaton Series by Irene Koronas

 



Excerpts from gnōstos, Volume VII (manuscript) of the Grammaton Series by Irene Koronas 


1

 

transpositional; a neuter

category on an armature

 

A perversell alignment

with diagonal on temporary

 

“I am tired of movement”

 

2

 

Brôme wheels tied to crudity,

compost jells the eyes. How

is it possible, the torture

of vacillation’s grind.  Without

measure. “How could they” make

print an annex to geofy the madwho

 

In comes the ass. 6.

 

Sharp ears cut fissure

 

qua qua qua qua

 

Comedy replaces the false

face for an audience. The synthetic

Evid and Optie atomism

 

The monad hyposcript sops up

conviction. Sop moderates

a phallic glide

 

3

 

(in)difference

indif-ference

indifférance 

 

We reproduce the pattern

a body for its head. Sawol

premembers on return

 

the limb’s need

Reconstructing

can unsettle distinction

Clump the long tongue

 

The differs: spit trickles from

headless sleep. He shoos away

his dull thud and skirts a snore

an unnatural slap ‘n blob

 

What is it?

 

An interpretation?

 

An explanation about 

plebeian taste

 

Waste of a sensualism

that powers sedum

 

I am the one thinking

 

4

 

There may be nothing

more sturdy or absurd

than certain insistence

 

A little “it” that italicizes

itself and subjects it to ex

 

An impure adjustment

ridden by removal

 

Hung by profundity

 

5

 

A kabbalistic contraction

A promethean ellipsis

 

A camouflage circumflex

leak. A shoelast

An open sole

for ferreomembers

A highheel congregation

spins and taps. Toes

eager for umbrage
