Imbroglio :: Adrian Odessa Federspiel

How much of your blood is [   ]?
Pin let [   ] down / let [      ] go/ damaged
—imbroglio
on 25 a skin mysterious yet
while expectant for [    ]
change in [     ] other cannot
see then [     ]
why see in [      ]
asking [     ] how much of your blood is [       ]?
Hormones foregone by time
[               ] an addiction in passing of [         ]
of a loved one of [        ]
of a trickle of [         ]
change through with new/now doing of [            ]
on the level of [            ] blood of [            ]
a madness in [             ] a mutual blue
with skin as holier than thou that [         ]
the I / eye closed creation [          ]
that [             ] on [           ] sweats
below, awkward, unaccustomed
[         ] life as [        ] always being a [         ]
rose-point in [         ]
right direction
[         ] order to undo the [         ] done justice
hive-wrapped in [         ] averted
from [       ] purple button outline U
with point of confession that [       ]
the booth was [       ] wood too
ears too numerous, location too cramped
whitened with [       ] strewn threads
a desk whose joists were [       ]
had fallen on [     ]
one side; shards of
glass dipped in
mercury, cooled such
that we toggle our bodies in its gaze
we are thankful did not/cannot evaluate frame
save for spraying helpless with [       ]
energy across surface writ [         ]
remains from whole digging
hole digging evacuate frame
written runic scrawl
across accumulated bodies in [         ]
I cannot [         ] keep eyes from [         ] distraction
distraction for [         ]
a half honeyed tea, half heatedly drunk
a leftover cake forced
gullet accepted what illness bereaves
the first gift from [       ]
taken in [         ]
segments w/out [     ] handfuls
toward pates lingering
second shot of [       ]
of whiskey on the first [         ]
the true first gift from [           ]
says I should take [       ] as privilege
for [         ] ascending the stairs in [     ] stead
tour with obvious brandish
such that [       ]
only direction to [       ]
brushed hand
on descent to [       ]
so that potato could be [       ]
entertained so [         ] a roll of fat from [       ]
bougie food could [         ]
[       ] could bare witness to [       ]
check without markers
no doubt taken as [       ]
shying away from [       ]
the undone dialects at [       ]
the perils of distance
one nearer than one
both shoulders line [       ]
[   ] triangle in [     ]
slouch so [     ]
eyes cannot [      ]
embraces repeated by request/
showered with [       ]
praise so [         ] diametric
to one whose [       ] not enough
an always from [       ] running
trying to turn the other from [       ]
while I/the Other refuse
[       ] to write of another [       ]
let gone day
shoulders still reach [     ]
despite mine eyes being
faced from [       ]
away from [       ]
a jealousy long forgotten.

without a fledgling fear of being [       ]
found out as [       ] compared to [     ]
how much of your blood is [       ]?
despite a need to—
Re: identity
imbroglio undone
for a life with [         ]
that life imaged, always immaterial
a dream not deferred but [       ]
unned, made imposter, impossible obsession—
a dire Real
made I now animate painting
a memory of nothing
an embarrassment embraced
caked culprit forgery
in measured words by [       ]
an ugly [       ], an ugly [       ]
an ugly [       ], an ugly [       ].
