iron

collapsing rhymes, this
iron resolution riddles
the sublime
tickles the ivory
vagrants in they
classy lil jibes:
answer the blistered
options: i crammed
for the last time, all
rumors to the con
trary.

styrofoam

dim sum
organic chemistry misses
the point, if pointing
is your bliss, point west
she misses the point all
the time: grasp the tear
animate the wound
time gathers you to
her womb.

delilah’s mean flavors
gathering storm in the foamy
mouths of billy-babes
we fashion our times
in the biomes of the west
we sense the demise
of nautical pleasures
we ape the rim
angle for the rival’s
exposure, coasting down
the vital signs
of liquid treasure.

foreign

tangle your groove, mister
split them infinitives
like it’s rapture
simple is the best
pesto, she
asked twice & you
gave only once:
hardly the quota you
wuz after, now wuz it.
shimmer this way, boogie
that: biblical negotiations will
ever ensue: you needn’t
lose sleep over that one:
that one left her mark
long after the gold
rush.

slick pasting the galaxies
i wonder
i wait for the next digression
I infatuate beyond plenty
seven times the seven dreams
of these foreign times
ask your eternal questions
in the next Demeter, pleasing
pleasure paints
the least of your worries . . .

detour

valvoline mamas,
casual wear,
fighting the best
of the beasties
in the walls
of Nepal,
sighting the jiggly
set, infiltrating
those at the Six:
you wondered
before the wonder
started, stranded
in the separation
between fools
& gnomes: take
you best shot,
overindulge
the chocolate nudge
eastward:
two flowers twined
& in their twining
twinned the aspen
spaces, all
the tender buttons
of their lateral
charms.

potato

jaybird
smoking jacket reveals
tender feelings
habitual removal of foxy
elements: the display
was offered
a la carte while
the tierra del fuegos
took the stage
zanzibaring all
remnants
of the forever men
sliding down
the squeegee bends.
frivolity comes
in twos and threes,
not really much
more mustard than
that. down
the street
caravans assemble,
vigilance is cast
off, the table
set by
the usual name and tide.
Account for yourself,
bloody fool: enough
with your vagaries: contact
officialdom, cagey little
beasts,
standard warranty,
unaccustomed earth
in the diligent dance.

lashes

marigold
feisty
evering the detours
calming the fees
casting allure
down lengthy greens.
simple calculations,
this heart greener
than that
all the carp
you can eat
festering
in the cesspools
of granted wheat.
walk miles
swim rivers
cloud mind
with all that
withers, i am seed
building seed
trampling seed
& i wander
the castled ways
seeding fire
in coffee eyes
in coffee ways
tearing down
the fear
in all the fearsome
days.

coaster

viable
beach boy avatars
muddy riot
drifters and pendergrass
lonesome cowboys
in the krishnamurti aisles
alimentary canals:
the Amsterdam trick
or treat: we regale
the mixed blessings
while peas and roast
beef and tofu
squalor are passed
to the little
kids table
and royal mess alike.
avaricious avatars? why be
so beguiled? whisper
on the downstroke &
see if casual
is Govinda’s way or not.
These daze we’d simply
call him a suck-up, but
70’s child that he is,
he deserves more
compassion; we’ll squiggle
with the moon later:
it’s all up for
grabs. now’s for the brighter
lessons.

holy

two-thirds of the cathedral
drilled the holes
candle-waiting through
the emerging bliss
dewey decimal postulants
gambling for their lives
the teensiest
eensiest soul
feening for god’s glory
astroplaning
all the didgeridoo
nonsense of castle dreams,
the baked goods
twining vision
with affirmation,
doodle time
envigorating
all our cattle drives
to the altar
spilling tithes
east & west
granulated saintliness
playground pieties
a most vertical integration
in the names of
the most seemly.

check

paintbrush

willem on his floor
pollock ripping off
the undersea
I have you
to give me
portraits in the deeps
that fathom not
& fathom even
naughtier; rothko
squires his visibility
away
in houston’s dank,
while
pixilations run
rampant
down
the street of cy
twombly’s back
door. I would
climb back down
the ladder to see
you,
to know
the rest,
to ask if now
is
our plenty.

street people

walkin the halls

they halls

the ritzy fools
captains
of the hunt
stirring
the mixing cup
of betty

future imperfect
drownin us

blossom

little flower
blooming
her basilica
here in Tres Leches
flowers on
Zarzamora
whispering through
the grill,
through
the retardant vigor
of her
dying darkness,
her wish to see
her husband
darkly
insinuant
in the water
that calls
her name.

knot

decent exposures:
knot
the kind you take home
to mother
the kind you parade
through
the narrowest
of streets
the kind that
infantilize
the noblest dreams
the kind that shimmy
down the lasting
pole,
the very last
place you’d
think to hide
your reckoning:
gordian’s sista
can get
them five
for a dolla, if you
holla –
if you think
it best.
give it your
best,
dreamers,
be explicit
down the long
lines
of your
knottiest
dreams, &
send your cash
a-scheming.

anxiety

you said you wouldn’t
cop to the plea,
passing round
the anxiety
of never doing,
of never seeing,
of never redeeming
yourself
for the price
of this pain.
the waterfront calls,
her coffees grinding,
calls in
the afterdark,
the morning cool
around your
lurking wisdom.
Gathered, she did,
shelter for
your storms,
riddled, we are,
for the means
to be born.

collar

plaster caesar
collard greens
dreaming down
the holler,
invisible thimblethin
moonshine dreaming
cowsills at the door
still gleaming
in plaster grilled
burgers through
the sounding beams
i go where no one
knows the plaster
dreamer
you might see
the kite lady
in yours, but
i’ve the mizifu
in mine. little rachel
& her broom,
it’s whisking,
eric’s wondering, but
the dreamer dreams on,
pulling us all on
by
the collar.

alert

chamomile tents,
astral projection:
is it any wonder
you quest for the next
rendering of hazy
quizmatics?
why tarry in
the last row when
the seeming is now?

Casper the friendly
tittered:
his fees were friendly, but
his groom was waiting –
grooming freely,
grooming in bliss,
grooming beyond the mighty,
the able,
the kiss.

vows

downy empress,
she will go far:
not in your kia –
well, there you are.
it doesn’t help
that jello smacks of
incense &
perfume smacks of
horse:
the rest is in the bin
& for you there’s
less to force.

reedy they were
we imped in orange and blue:
mindless?
shivering, more like
if you go down the dog’s way
dogs will find you
woof
this would not be the last
time, but you
just might be the first

yarn

this was the one:
in suits
we gambled
lives of worthless endeavor
roger to rome
i stood still
stefan – why stefan –
to milan
all in suits
it was that one
and we were pegged
but never left

track

track the what of the how of why, this was her curse, she didn’t ask, she didn’t know, she ever wondered and then there was loss, the trail of a glimmer down the trail, down the nose of knowing, down the egress to hell’s hellish hounds. This will be your murmuring heart, mind, they said, and that was the saunter that left her heart wracked with oblivion. will this dream never alter, never end, never lay down its only weapons: this you wonder ever into the dark of your darkest dark.

index

pay your dues,
boy: with this
ring I thee
wet, miserable
squirrelheads
plaguing village
and dell, halving
the wisdom hounds,
intimidating
the fleabag
motels
with downy
twins rummaging
the chop suey
nights of runway
brigades: casual
they may be,
automatic
twizzling
beyond the Nine,
vegimatic
sizzling beyond
the Vine.

stereo

cash on the dollar
your B&O be
bored and olding
saffron rocks
dillar dollar
casual Mensa
scholars
at the 45 rpm:
chow time!
twine time!
whisper
you love me
boy time!
supremely dissident,
we were
paisley animals
in a downtown
adolescence heaped
with pride &
acne & oxymoronic
filigree. these are
times that sage
the entry,
build the storm.

licorice

Fabulastic —
only at
the madras cafe
or
on your toofbrush:
these are
lasting things,
known universes,
Karaoke visibilities
That tickle
The ivories,
Sending back the past
Due sentimentalities
That linger on
The tongue.

cigarette

riverside torso
nightwanderings after
midnight
patsy knew this
territory
it takes a crazy
love
to weather
the deepest dark
anvils pounding
in rhyme. doors
may slam
follow or
not, envision
the round
the bend, if
you dare,
if
you care.

fate

ashen marketplace
feeble encroachments
out of egypt
marching crosswise
the visual
tendencies awaken
the touch
of four
o’clock upon
your pate
the whisper
that now
could be later
than usual
organisms
of light,
we quiver
taste fever’s
rush on
skin, rush on
blistered memory, rush
on all these
times
of need.

pit

touch and go,
the bull
shit, pitted
against pithy
anorexia, sublime
retreat
from the day’s rest:
you would
know
the difference, you
would know
where Mary
led the way,
‘scaping Egypt,
Pharaoh tailing,
should we
wed
the fairest one
of all, or
is
the last
truly first,
in fractal
disarray?

teacher

james charleston the Seventh
broke his nether
lens while
scraping the rest
of his anatomy class
off the wall:
he optioned
his last itty bit
of granular
wisdom
for chocolate
from julia’s
secret stash,
the dark
choco-stash,
ambiguities nestling
all down
the lines of her
ubiquity. balloons
have the crash
course capacity
for cryogenics.
we wish for many
things in our
vigorous youths,
but it ain’t
nothing compared
to the wishes
that
be comin’.
