and rabbits will run

for every sinner,
his own sun,

and i’m half-past late for
dinner ’cause i lost track of
time for sake of
more fun

begin, then end just to
begin again, til
mercy pulls
the plug,

or sweeps feet out
from above
the rug,

once thought affection was just
something grown-ups hid
in their closets,

away from kids
so needy for
love.

Blowhole in Head

it falls apart to fuse
stronger,

like smoke binding
ol’ lungs called
cancer,

let’s dance streamers over
graves but just so our
dead can join us
in usherin’

fresh age braids with golden hair,
blew tumor out my head
as whale geysers
to the air.

Stalled Car

there’s something in the
way i stutter thru shames of
tongue’s transgressions

it’s like i failed in revving an engine
that turns and rolls all over
itself to catch a spark
off anything,

other than own
propulsive energies,
repulsed by own
complicity
in

rough state of
this stalled
out car

‘ready pushed
too hard
.

Logo Goes Here ™

no logo,
another level?

how you figure,
same orange, same label,
same inflated
price
,

same sodium GMO, same plug
repeated ad nauseam
but yup, no logo,
it’s another
level,

now level with me, pal
think we’re as dumb as the
ad so patronized?

and why are these dumb
ads gettin’ me so
damn riled?

Bobbin’ Bird

when 8pm scratches
at midnight

a worry whispers its breath
cross darkest ditch, dragged over my
lips ‘gaint the vein, curls
the hurt, curls of dirt,
recoils our earth,
to end all pain,
make things
work and

it’s the end,
and it still hurts for
parts n’ toil shed
in search,

now fly on,
bobbin’
bird.

Enmeshed n’ Messy

it’s a thin membrane
that divides us,

it’s a well oiled mess
keepin’ we so
separate

and it’s same mesh that
keeps the stingers at
desired length
distance,

or lets flavors thru to
brew those steamed
sups of comfort,

when they come for
me, don’t expect
resistance,

just a cloud burst
in the distance
.
