 March of the Hanged Men  




1.
hyperarticulated giant black ants endlessly boiling out of a heaped-up hole
in the sand
2.
such a flow of any other thing would mean abundance but these ants replay
a tape-loop vision
3.
out of hell the reflexive the implacable the unreasoning rage whose only end
is in destruction
4.
the way the dead-eyed Christ in Piero’s Resurrection will march right over
the sleeping soldiers
5.
without pausing or lowering his gaze for he has no regard now for human
weakness
6.
since that part of him boiled entirely away leaving only those jointed auto-
matic limbs
7.
that will march forward until those bare immortal feet have pounded a path
through the earth
8.
back down to hell because there is no stopping point for what is infinite
what cannot be destroyed
