sometimes severs an artery 
then leaves
the most beautiful scar

Fish Butt

Listen to poem:
Basking on the sun-lit ice.
Walrus mumble filled with hype.
Today I haven't a thing to do
(that's nice)
But fish, butt-wipe, butt you.

I think I'm gonna' change
like the tempestuous wind
the lucid kite within
its now severed string
useless tail and descent to where
no one can find me

Pandemonium, On Fire

Listen to poem:
Pan-Pan, the demons have jumped,
Ship on fire, smoke engulfing.

In the Dead of Night

Listen to poem:
The bridge is covered, has no light
all who pass over are shaded 
eclipsed by day, in dead of night
unseemly notice evaded
by keeping all's well, out of sight.

Straddling the Threshold

Listen to poem:
Edging close to brink,
I dare not look back nor blink.
Been here many times
before, but always slipped back,
losing grip in the leg-up.

Empty Can Dented Defiled

Listen to poem:
Cans lie strewn, litter tossed away, discarded trash. Dents - defile, deform the perfect container form. Wanton abuse uncalled-for.

Paul Klee- Little Fool in Trance

Listen to poem:
Floating dream on nimble feet
Swinging lines
Full of life
As if he’s about to fly

Watch him skip  blissfully,
Unaware
Of the world
Full of joy and full of peace
As you stare.

Full Stop

Listen to poem:
I'm poised to deliver a singularity,
   a pithy black hole,
a spot from which there's no escape
   once key or pen is lifted;
It's terminal - period:
Wait for it! The End is nigh!
There, it's done .

Sun Rose at Night, Dawned Twice

Listen to poem:
Humble moon
hid sun
from view;
earthlings
forsaken
shaken.

Saw eclipse at dusk,
when sun set,
then rose
at night.

Saw eclipse at dawn
when sun rose, twice
in morn.

Sun
forlorn,
occulted.

Hopefully

Listen to poem:
the skin that tingles when lips meet
will probably demand forever
but this heart that beats out of rhythm
from the touch of a dream
must say no to a blush and promises
instead I'm beholding to sacrifice
what cannot be laid down

DONKEY DONKEY

Listen to poem:
Finding a cassette tape from 1962,
  Gave me the idea of rerecording it for you.
    Hearing our melodic childhood voices soar,
       I wept as magical memories came to the fore.
          Just sharing with you makes me love you more.

Down This Road

Listen to poem:
on a snow covered slope
for what seems like miles
the serpentine lines
lead back to you
when the sand surf and sun
join hands with the blue horizon
you watch in naked awe
still down this road
I need to know
your plans
your simple goodbyes
