Comets (fragment sequence #2 1/5/14)


a matchbox
as a briefcase
for tears
___________

a goat is alone
wheezing the spearmint
with his hind legs broken
_____________________

the castle was carbonized
by the sneeze of the bomb
and the west wind
______________________

i will fill my oven
with paper and ink
and cook a dream
_____________________

the haircolors of rich-girls
turn me to straw
an artist over warm supper who starves for love and skin
_________________________

i attended the party alone
i stayed alone
despite three dozen greetings
_____________________________

charge your battery with the sky
i bet it will run for days
______________________________

the heart is a mine in the earth of man
we are shoveling for tenderness
sparring other diggers for little scavbs of compassion
___________________________________ _________________

one day
a comet
will explain my love for the world
EUTHANASIA
___________________________________

in high school
i clenched my belly
hungry for touch
while girls i knew kissed horses in the hallway

__________________________________

during the 8th month of harboring envy
i sired broken glass
from my asshole

______________________________

i want to spend my birthday
inside of my cake
-shrink rays and chocolate fudge
_________________________________

i dont worry about anything
i would have to think highly of myself to worry
i dont know enough to worry
__________________________________
a shy bird will start to cherish the friend who shares the worm more than the worm who offers it its friend
_______________________________________ _______

i am a buzzard in a culture full of vultures who believe they are condors

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
