Meet me at Panini Village


Typhoid or was it
second marriage 
arranged to displace pawn shop
the doctor where she grew up
simulated woodland
hair in a bun
patterns of books
in Troy New York
I made that up
there were no patterns
worklife and lifework
just tensions of the belittling present
and low self esteem

Soft Dogma


 








Barrel rolls
& cork barrettes
play acting
bound to what implicates
‎I took it in the mouth
belief against belief
I want to be that jailbait
monster that no longer exists
parasite to echo on
fractured inits
swallowed starfish
figs stems & all

Phat Pitch


     “Another futurism is possible”
–B Bratton

Haunted fact
of futures past

Remorse isn't enough
What carries force

carries forth
As my ‘gaol’ quivers

I misspelled
more than the failed commune

My father’s trade
the lip latency I’ve slipped into

Arrowheld
of Kairos lost

Capital husbandry
captive by constraints of love

Take your fear grin to the tongue gym


I pushed up up and away
Super mensch in a choral robe
Liar liar she sang
Humans in tutus and king tuts
I mean too human
You are too human
No more please and thanks

To remove lyric


Step 1: disable alarm
& backup the sun

Assert there is a becoming
of continuity but no continuity
of becoming

Okay step to y’all
disable cone of silence
& open pop up
mansplain in 140 characters or less

Once you see the display tent
& bicycles built for two
Deploy enjoyment
this is the dance party
circulation could not forestall
call it material detail
call it sealed motion to unseal

Finally to exploit charisma
remember to unclick rootkit
Insert machine first
(no hard on’s please)
Nature’s unpacked receptacle
with its grass stain camo constants
wants to evade unstoppable gadgets
to cannibalize all variables
to get happy
& gag all expression

Trespass to Chattels


No shirt no shoes
problem of history’s veil
the better to invent what lacks direction

Mix white flour
to taste reciprocal measure
Take off the other body
better behavior figures its ground
selling the sandwich
rhetoric preserves the baser instincts

I’ll take domination with a side of
the real of course

Nothing authorizes
Emotive machines
like colorblind Zombies

Character Count

“If reason be judge, no writer has produced such inconsistent characters as nature herself has.”

 “… he was, in the extremest sense of the word, a stranger.”

            -H. Melville

It translates confidence
Epoxy to hold my brother
it holds with two quick slaps
one part primal then the fix

We vote with our feet
Between seeing & being seen
between making a shoe
& finding a buyer for the shoe

I heard the all points I saw the man
Seeking stranger with two jobs
poet with the stinging cheeks
wilder mongrel propped up for song

Training ones ear to disrupt
to engage uncivil verse
as strange as the orchid
voting for wasps
