the lost and spellbound

he comes unafraid
dyslexic. after softly stabbing
wood all day with a 
blade

comes to me humming 
unafraid. like a bird to the feeder
plants hanging around 
awhile

my fallen 
smile

childish he dips into me 
spellbound 

like a man he
gets his fill and
gone

world without dust

the past all shredded the 

wheat in the bowl we

soak it in milk and blast off here and now

in god we trust a world

without dust

1995 self portrait

stood shy of six feet i felt 
incomplete i bothered myself 
with misgivings

solstice

what fragment of light we

found in the pitch heart of darkness

was greater than noon on the 

solstice day

year of luxury

sedated on chocolate and pills
a soft butt of jokes dead on
arrival dropped out of survival 
mode. life was luxury status 
year 2049. a soup of liquid liver soak stations 
phones mobilized to do the chores 
sedentary. lesser and lesser 
motion. multimedia saturated
higher designed production
the word on the street a limited 
edition collector soundbyte 
personalities undefined
consciousness nonextant
relegated to epilogue status 
one-liners and tweets regurgitated 
4 swallows

2006

i had to desert my friends 

an epic perfectionist i

could not stand to be the one

they got to know i was changing so 

i left and i howled

when they were

gone

golden

he had her in his sights

up on the truss of the tower

bridge she wore the golden

threads the sun could not

contend under a spotless sky

off the paint the winter

morning birds watching he 

posed and shot her
