clearance Q

for the love of silence 
they lived 

no tv
no kids
strong meds
no voices no 

they got they life 
back 4 nothin' 
off a clearance

fears and opinions


coffee and

classical music 

help push aside the fears

everybody has 

i must be thoughtless


for worlds come

into view

joie de vivre

the songs on the radio 

could pull them through the roughest days

the no knock warrants of mood and memory 

flashbacks attacking the heart

the soul

if they made it out 

alive they traveled to the intersection 

of bustling and boisterous

hoping joie de vivre might 

rub off

life after cancel

 they anticipated a day the world 

would cancel them too and dreamed 

up some life what would follow

levee city

we walked levee road
the heat threatening 
shopping carts pushed
into the canal the geese 
hissing. the last great flood
in 1850 the things 
which used 2 no longer 
scare me

out from under

hundreds of miles of cassette tape

and wires. useless and bound by 

an ethos of noninclusivity they

patched it together they

sang they own wobbly

song til someone 

came around

composing worlds in solitude

what a way of seeing something missing

bringing into being what

you seeing

they can go there 

all who belong
