in the deserted cinema, screentests

in the desert, screentests
in the desert, screening, wandering, wanton
wanton, in the desert, the deserted screentests
they are star and earth, wayward they are, wanton
they swallow earth they are screen,
they are testing screen
wanton they are, they follow star,
deserted, they follow screen

the literature stops when the dead arise
when nothing is seen for their eyes
the language stops when the dead surmise
nothing beyond behind their eyes
the dead shall stop the verb arise
when the noun seeks the body's eyes
what stops the road along them plies
the world was given to their eyes
