all hands


by Dylan Harris







superself monotone voice

never ken present

saycycle bore

require speak desire sleep

tone tune numb






all hands they say



all hands i say








profession communicate must

no rote recite flat


good numbers barn error

exchange rate


all i see tasks

bossmen can’t do


faith them

do i











arbeit heavy headache

insisted voices themselves

brawl private sleights

at the no can work while


tiredness surfaces

self important self import

eyes close drones drone

do i sleep
