            Noa Micaela Fields




Indeterminate my following
a saga nowhere

If I’m inside a washroom
            it’s awash with noise
etymologically who am I

“Get out of here”
Blinking I em dash

Then I’m a self abandoned
meteorite (which you told me
are really lovelorn)

                    Yet I danced, stayed

`                                                 “Sorry for yr baggage”

Tending a new with
-drawn me weathering off hours

                                                                Were you fought after

                Meet me half-way since
                fortune told italicized crying

                                                                    “Hey man, don’t cry”

                                I dance, séance
                                a chimera now

We’re wishing nowadays
O peace as I safely go

                                                                You seem as if already dead



Ends, if impossible, unimaginable
I can’t trust “there there”                             mimetic hit-and-run mouth
(Poets find they doubt words; more hysterical negations form sidereal time)
History: E was a storage unit of mine.      Blast off                 infinity clauses

Too divorced speed of all-grown-up         “L-M-N-O-P”
            (Author detunes a fiddle)
In    a    writhing        tempo                                     not to fall through time
                                                    somatic    wishes

The lesson begins                                         emotions off-shore
                                                    (Roses, glyphs)
Admissions of the hidden mind                                         butting in
Confuse my pagination                                         fly in weekends

                                                                                All these migraines
Mistakes, more mistakes
                                (“A” rings to a close)
                                                                            I did not want to break up
Together: noise.

The title phrase, “The Effraction of Alterity,” is from Anne Dufourmantelle’s In Praise of Risk.
