'Callus and the Crane' by Grayson Revoir at Neuer Essener Kunstverein, Essen


As if I were an Island, and this here, the ocean - cool breeze not yet a tempest

seagull shit blanketing exposed rocks - crags - boulders in the surf -

what sense of humor they must have?

to endure such ridicule

as well with me, weather’s judgement washes over my thick skin

vanishing behind the veil of the second hand - tapered toward the south.

Single and horny in the desert

but alone

only thick contents

difficult to cut through - uneasy to open

this bygone romance

with a dry mouth

soggy pits perspiring for no one - no ingrown hairs surface above brief


making kin with the tastebuds

fitting perfectly together

sweating and shedding

laughing as bedfellows do
