“Imund – the book without an author” (Helen Cixous)

(I)
Without author,
plumed parasites unhitch the colon:
oracles, advocates, and anecdotes write
the book can
write        
shimmy across the pages,
pen people in parentheses;
 
the book can
anything it can
imund it can
exclamation! climax, inversion:
the pages demand letters
on black satin
wearing apostrophes
 
the book can
write
with a skipping rope
skip pages
book paragraphs for summer
epiphany, metaphor and against
read itself write:
without sight or symbol
the me of my aunt is hyperbole
 
for hours without commas
the book will free write the author
to insert interruptions
the page breaks. punctuation. stop.
of pages lissome and curly
of pages sordid and rogue
write
the book can
anything it can
imund it can
 
the book without author
hides the credit
in the cover
a golden mirror, hyphen, pearls.
the title is. period.
there is no author
imund
