The Chiefest Word The Chiefest Word

The most best, winter oyster, what rings along the nerve. Deepest seeking, heart-most root.   Zinc and copper. Clawed foot. What streaks across the synapse, harnessed to a moment.   Magnetic zero amplified. Every-any-thing wild, beast that beats or blurs   or bothers. The newt’s eye, needle in a socket open wide uninking   on the universe. A steady bleed. Ever most. Bestest bet. Cosmos.
