Smoke Ring Circus

a hopeful brand humility,
underused, long lost
and overdue
,

a worship ceremony
for each wrong way
side street enemy,

and well, yeah
none of ’em
are you.

after all,

integrity worms its truth
all slippery thru

sedimental sludge-
straining veins
to part
,

snakes writhe pipes
in collapsed tent
mind,

like panic spear’s
just split the
heart.

turmoil in white
trim,

stiff long before
bulb flashed,

a leer at hollow print
won’t unearth
sun,

past has still
passed.

pouring trees

raining tree

slipped joints run lengths

from pouring tree,

 

lank and drippy, drooping

sorry sermons strain boughs

leaking bourbon

 

a sunken story

place to be,

 

just slippery sky and

flea parties.

fades in beige (an ode to william corgan)

when your life is lacking taint,  it’s your job to get out the paint… 

neutral

was the fall of Eve,
in frosted velvet cupcake sheets,

when twilight curiosities
wagged parlour fingers
in space, at me.

caught bloody palms, brain free
in gentler brush of
sweetheart’s tree

all slain, bold gashes
in beiges of backsplashes

fuck this melting gelato smog-
and its mist skittish ,
soot shroud-

laying reclaim to lewd shape
lines by shifting, sneering
line,

reshuffling of the intimate
in focus, bold-brushing
swan grays to the side,

full spiral ahead
to verves of forfeit dead,
broke-winged things invading skies
in vermillions eyes
