uncomfort is
dis
comfort

clap
it
shut

we care less
lest we are truly abreast
two down to one
it is a different
night
my advice to you
is somehow to see
past the pain
into beauty and
spread your own beauty
and this
does not come
from the barn
burned hatred
of yourself-
you have
to go past
the slur

rushed writing
timed writing

I hit up
the coffee shop with
the 80s satellite radio
I’m not saying it’s
not fun
because I know people
who were born
in the late 80s when
for me
we were enjoying
the Youth Crew
straightedge days

I’d not write a thing down
and if I did
only to detail
how dark blue
the clouds would get
until they
went completely black
(or nearest-black)
and that was my god—
guider of huge cows
and little baby cows
needing the most from you…

and when I went to
India, witnessed a crazy one
jumped out in the road and
bucked like at the rodeo
uncontrollably angry and insane
and untamed
and scaring the shit
out of us all

keypunch
oh the heat
and the lag
would like to
rest on a bed of
Indian food
but I’ll settle for
watching the cargo
train ply by
sleepy spice
abundant Texas sun
smile big like
a helping of rice the
size of your head
generous grinning globe

talk
talk
talk up a friend
after ten years
or more
catching up
whatever you
think to talk about
the subject at hand
it’s all
pretty to me
how the time
has gone
and you can
comment on…

how’s so and so doin’?

ah, he was
in jail for a stint
but is probably
out by now

just haven’t checked

so life

is life
in each
bit manageable
you grab and manage
you seize and
take charge
and manage

the eye is
trained
exactly
for what it wants
desire farm
forms
and awkward
things are said

you can only imagine

and it’s done
through
a chain linked fence

a non-god’s glory
for all
to see
for all who you
thought would never see

I write
plenty of
love letters
to Terra
she knows
but I
hardly do
it’s been my
way since was…
a rhyming number

kangaroo

mother, keep your
children cool
keep your
children warm

Australia
is
kinda
tricky

poet thing
ends in drunken
madness
they sponsor
many kegs
and blunts are
passed around

I don’t wanna
capitalize like
you guys

an extra beer
is silkily passed
like the blunt

like the lie

a flurry
and sitting awkwardly
alone
in a passion
that is no longer yours

breathing in Texas
and physical 713
Texas love
during the
siren flashing
after the hooligans
of mainstream
Main St. hip hop

a club to go in

the company cat
is still floating
around the
building
bless his soul
he scratches
my finger
and it is otherwise
a calm field
of empty
they’re sending
folks home
early
so that we
can get on
with life
and love
our neighbors
