Exchanging Static… by Craig Kurtz


Exchanging Static

We have jostled lucubrations
in the tensile online of when.
Where etymons reside intuitive
language drafts from
inscrutable &. You
overrode my tendency

to semicolon.

We embrangled grammar &
disavowed diacritical syntax.
Notice analogous logged on
hand in hand archive
with such adept edit.
I like that dispatching the

full stop, too.

We interosculated copy
& downloaded duet locution.
Where files import involuntary
adjectives, I require increased
ratio to explain a map of you.
I will empty my vocabulary

into you.

We have filtered parenthesis
& triggered synonymity.
Whatever algorithm might fly
I hear your ringtone like a
fingerprint. I will caress
you with the smallest
of syllables.
