from gnōstosV. VII, The Grammaton Series


Irene Koronas





NHC II, 5; XIII, 2; Brit. Lib. Or. 4926(1)







The velleity in rebella 

or bulb cupolas. This

symbiosis reads

from a kenotic ethos


Ublic nimbus and the trivial

quotidian burn. Xyster


an unction in remains

stirs Job’s notes, a polarity,

an ob in theodicy. Throw


glass dice.


Hearse the dart that splits

the disinter

the hack

the serpent 


It is a prerogative

go go again pity

again aff aff em


Nuance assaults







Add bands acquire

a sinkhole

a whiprose


pour Pushkin

a vodka


Cemeteries negate Oedipus


see: Boris Godunov (boyar)

see: cut the surgeon (incision)

see: four letters 


drop the enigma

uncreed the miter

ash into piles, heads,

bottles and knuckles


or add viction

a seminal uck


see: scarification


The eusocial

the infraorder

the termitic feed 







Between impulse

and malaispree

the mad stuff


Byronics ignite

and pour equivalents


Assimilate uturals 

and demisents


the common clump

cocky as a mental



present in the gist

benefit of gold teeth


Staple in place

the omnific idea


irons out

the supernatural



and purgatoric

as a leach







A quisite reach

to a nadoc

links rectivity


to dynamises’ first id

the other bulge


the excrescence

on a slick drip 

on blackdrop.


A stain dilute on pap

betrays its black

and red gravity







The eight eye isciple

blences and escapes

with a fedit hop


over a throp chain

they humili on

raple tractates


colophon dex vii
