Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )
 
   
 
 

HOW THE ANIMALS ARE OUR FAMILY MEMBERS

December 18th, 2014

HOW THE ANIMALS ARE OUR FAMILY MEMBERS

How the animals are our
family members, warm,
snorting breaths,
lather, all that

We suck their nipples,
wet nurses who extend into
the duration of our lives

Land made flesh, flank,
muscle moving over the
drive-by fields

I don’t want to eat
them

Sisyphus Morning

Sisyphus Morning

Sleep holding down my eyelids,
burst of honey spoons my head,
hot black caffeine down my throat,
climb this slo-mo mo-fo slope.

Been down this slide before,
swung this swing so many days,
in and out the same old door,
zombie shuffle same old craze.

Eat the fuel, drink the water,
both been done and done and done,
walk through their daily oughter,
wondering how one reaches one.

Buddha’s Fish Stand

December 5th, 2014

Buddha’s Fish Stand

What country do fish come from?
Finland, cuz they’re all fin-ish.

Which came first, the lemon or the ade?

Two most stolen items are Bic pens and Bic lighters.
They’re ubiquitous, and then they’re gone.

Ommmmmmmmlette, a light fluffy transcendentalism.

What does the last leaf on the tree say?
Leaf me alone.

Everything’s relative, especially with relatives.

Used to work at the fish stand
which was hard because they had no legs.

– Smith, 12.5.2014

Too much nastiness out there. Think I’ll stay in here awhile.

IN ITSELF

December 4th, 2014

Amber stone
sitting in itself
like a turtle
on a log

What else
would be there
but a log for
the turtle
and a shell
on its back

And resin–

Everywhere
rosin waxes
acuity

POEM FOR REALITY, DEC. 2, 2014

December 2nd, 2014

Totem pole
Bird God with his big beak
Shamans flapping their feathers
Graciousness of that which we charm
Graciousness of that which gives regardless

Animal shaman
charming people

Animal shaman wearing skin
of people

Animal shaman
