Lay down in a snow colored field Soft like goose grown Where death is covered by the winter Blanket Your heart from the suspect season Let your cheek feel the frozen earth Sprinkle concentric flakes bitter and numb Cold to warm fresh flesh Young like the night stars above Naked and cold half-moon spilling milk […]

Ode to Death

Devil devil die Death mortal dead Mucus moss filled death Bad luck And so on —————— from Car Sick from Circus Peanuts

The Perfect Day

A pushy gray sky sinks Dripping teeth into my day What to do but stay In my shelter Thoughts of Helter Skelter Harakiri Mariah Carey All somewhere playing With the sun Gone Frightened away _______from Car Sick from Circus Peanuts


That guy’s a no good pimp He’s got no weapon or guts She’s like a butterfly In a jar Tempered like hot steal Hardened by a starless night She needs to be found Not enough holes in the lid That pimp’s gonna get cut She’s wanting to get free Wants to run wants to strut […]

Giving up the dead Haute and circumstance Rings of fire circumspect Light rises buoyed and shed Push through the contortions Of the cortex, Cortez sailing Beyond the flowers and familiar soil Pick up the scepter and dance With morning embers of chill Clarity waits on white foaming horses Adoring dawn impeccable, replaceable Breaking from the […]

Sugar Noses

Spring whistles at winter groping it Via screeching taxi drivers Wheels feeling the unclad Pavement up and down Melting tar and smell scattering Noses like sugar Rays of light Peel off winter and go Burlesque turning peep shows Into squint fests Couch old enough to sip whiskey All night gets tossed outside To make small […]

Nap Time

Big lake like a sodium free ocean Skinny boy body bereft of bad Habits Mud-slinging breaks the surface Of August morning water we want To be clean and calm light sifting Its sharp fingers through us Making us young and less pink Skin taught by the sun Building dirt castles Where water meets our clocks […]
