The Vine Maker


He had seen chicken necks 
twisted and broken in Chinese markets, 
the plucked dismemberment 
of flapping wings. 

With help, 
he could have strung his carcass up 
like a hog on a hook. 
He would have quickly cleaved himself 

from balls...Read More

Under the Full Moon
Daylight fades
As the pond jumps to life

Under the full moon
The call of the loon
Frogs croaking
Crickets chirping
Busy buzz of the dragonfly
Snake on the hunt
Slithering
Stalking
Flick of the tongue

Under the full moon
The yipping of the coyotes
Raccoon washes
The crayfish he snags
Bass jump
Catfish roll
Blue Heron...Read More

July


There is no milk to be had
from this humid churn.
The air is obese.
A limping obstinacy
inflates canyons of heat.
The sun throws a leash of blood
around our necks.
Throats channel the smoke
of saxophones.
Over the dry prairies
a fiery mule pulls the sun.
We will burn...Read More

 scurrying beneath the sun rays

 gathering in a blend of darkened feelers

swimming in a lake

my own private lake in woods

As the sun sets, a hot wind like this

Making from gold, saxophones
Howling above the sizzling summer rooftops,

He sweetens 
his days

Poe like
holding fishnets
clicks bait
and sweats
absent 
casting 
mystery 
reels 
he spins 
on the 
mouse wheel 
eternal 
harsh
addiction
he’s hooked
on numbers
in the trapping
is trapped
in the books
he is cooking

Some kind 
of acknowledgement -

Flatters buy
