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

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

855

the head told you 

you were crazy the heart 

called it out on a lie born 

to live not born to die

8mm

the heart finally spoke out like cinema
ina condemned theatre
tape rolling through a bell howell
projector dug from an archive. the heart
finally spoke out
the light cast upon the wall
bringing the past to life for
the heart never dies

the atomically compromised

thought you controlled the world your
media constructed myth 
up downloading torrents of permanent denial 
retweeting your favorite tweets glued to the young 
the restless dreaming of another piece of ass wading 
thru your broccoli florets stuck on stupid atomically
compromised goodbye

in America

nobody thinks alike nobody 

feels the same all 

the time. this is diversity

not subversion

we have shared history 

not carbon copy

if you wanna force someone

to think like you

this country is not 

your home

unified by division

topping charts to Siberia
they cast across Europe the States
legs down south by jeep by boat by
on foot on mood stabilizers on
chromebooks over streams and bit torrents
with under age girls
like some strange new religion unified
by division

the blinking ghosts

we float above stones 
ready to be polished
in then out of view
now we are colorful neither shiny 
absent not faded
not simply a statistic
dreaming to be someone we are
more realistic

city kids

an inside job turned out
a city kid gripped 
with doubt. the infinite details
the mind runs through
some barren fields
smokers heavy in their chains
anti-drug campaigns
DONT WALK        -      run!
she took your hand
in the street you 
knew you were 
loved

daybreak again

some spirit set off the motion 
sensitive lights triggered a memory 
the world had forgotten and you 
never would. they wanted you tough
growing up. had you up early
dressed and out before daybreak 
missteps and tears rarely forgiven 
they had been beaten 
out of them before
you

twenty thirteen

when fentanyl hit the spleen
overdose became mainstream you lost 
friends and legends and the sun still rises
the light wakes you under 
your angel hair cabbage you formulate 
a mission you play with memory you
love and live on

and on
and on
and on
