occupy this [can]zine
occupy these words
willful, regimented type-write
without remission, occupy this wire
and ink ribbon
occupy this soul–a corpus christi
occupy my fingers with tardy
these archaic instruments
the [right] [rite] write of metal clinch
to orchestrate this room–an
occupation of sound.
