A to Z
1 to 10
I woke today
And that was great
So I did what I couldn’t 
Yesterday wasn’t that great
So today I did contemplate
The tasks at hand
And continue with my fate
Just a day late.
10 to 1
Omega to Alpha

Anger up and down the street.
Victory caught in the jaws of defeat
Left lane, right turn
Right lane, left turn
Angry candle, watch it burn
down
down
down
The world is a purple urn
unbound


that's not only bad. It's worse than terrible.
truth be told, the gist is old
the grist has mold

The little rocket
Went up, up, up.
It went so high
Then just blew up.
It’s just another Musk
Expensive F up.

Winds to whispers to stone weapon eyes
puzzle the pieces that fall from the skies
Enormous black clouds send little white lies
shards of truth in dead mothers cries

Does it seem so hard to season
Where the babes do sleep to reason

Once, twice
Watch out for the mice
Three, four
I ran out the door.
Five, six
I picked up some sticks
Seven, eight
I burnt down the house to get even with the mice.

There's a haint in a cain't
that drifts when it's faint
broken boards without paint
A til for a taint
and an is where there ain't

Thoughts On A Soft Rainy Day

I watched a young girl bring
A nearly dead animal back to life
And I thought
For all the things we could be again
But for the what and why and then and when

Tempered Summer
Then Autumn come
And I feel colorful
like a new leaf
ironically
A bending ending to the blending
of life
every singular page

This reminds me of a William Carlos Williams poem I had to read in the 9th grade. The teacher was a plump, smug rookie: 

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

 

I could just see Tubby trotting those weasel words on a roommate after mooching his cereal. Over the years I'd think of responses like

 

Listen you asshole

Do that again and

the next plum's going up your backside

and my dog will take a dump in your Birkenstocks. 

 

 


 
Forget all rules, forget all restrictions, as to taste, as to what ought to be said, write for the pleasure of it... - William Carlos Williams

You have potential!

My 9th grade was in 68-69. Viet Nam was in black and white. So was the violence in my city. Monsters were and still are real. Not subtle. Easy to spot. They look like bullies and cowards.
That much hasn't changed.

Erections On A Theme

Trump eats detractors for breakfast because nutrition. Ugly but true.
He doesn't give a damn about me, and he doesn't give a damn about you.
His empire of dirt is an empire of hurt.
Like a Bible for a prop, like a worn out dirty shirt
When a body is unhealthy, that's when disease thrives,
taking what is vital with dull and rusty knives
So don't look for Biden, he doesn't exist
Another middle finger from a crumbling litmus fist.
Propped up by dregs of vassal forces , vacant suit hard to miss
Formaldehyde and acid stained, sealed with an empty kiss.

with your play on worlds

Old fridge is in the scrapyard
the words in a jar
no matter how fast we run
we won't get far

Chicken in a bread pan
pecking out dough
Pandora's box wide open now
row boat set to go

It all sounds bad
but could be worse
above the dirt is better
than riding in a hearse

You can gum up the proof

a puff and a poof

From co(s)mic anomalies to pericope winkles
we tug at our skins and smooth out our wrinkles
we polish the water to a high glossy sheen
and matter the weaving from ends to the mean
for with that keen input, those bit roots, brash strokes
we eye of the tiger and all that evokes
in witness to wonder the standing lie down
the cacophony ended, with nary a sound

I looked into the sky today
An orange haze everywhere
Is this the beginning of the end
Or is it the glasses I wear
It’s an Oompa Loompa kinda day
Waiting for the next bushel of oranges to drop
On my naked feet’s 
Oh FÜ¢k’s that hurtz

Work cancelled today but I still have a million things to do
It's beautiful outside for the whole day through
Maybe I'll just hang around here and harass you, you, and you
What else is a part time ne're-do-well going to do?
