Intents and Purposes

For Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino
On the occasion of his public reading

A structure and, to be sure, it seems clear
or moving thus toward some end point
arcs of charge and yes those convictions
were said to be deeply felt or held or in any case
You will know how to read it
as from the first reflex to build is
certain places on rubrics, a further, a letter.

Then and purely a matter of last, it seems clear
if such is keep or can be seen as sequence
parts of larger and pressed to legible perceptions
particle theory of paper or else the wave
You will know how to read it
plural integer to thread and still this
retrieve where mapping downtown from what a face is

Poem by Scott Wilkerson
