Not Reported

Intolerable the lack
I hear these broken phrases, on the idling Q train.
Intolerable the lack of opportunity
Not overhear: They come to me I mean
Creators wait
that is, the sounds they make do.
Not apply
Sticky sounds, they catch up meaning
Wait not apply. Creators wait not apply
as if meaning were fallen hair, food wrappers, pigeon down.
Wait not—or is it: Waste no reply?
Entrails
Or: Wait to reply? Creators wait to reply, and their lack of opportunity to do so is intolerable. Or is it: Creators await no reply? Or: They wait, indeed
entrails and shooting stars
too proud to apply, even unto their own peril they do not apply, and opportunity doesn’t knock, either—of its knock or its ring, an intolerable lack!
all the old elegant oracles, I find outmoded by frog songs in a wishing well.
