America the dutiful

September 17th, 2014

rich man land

Unnatural Anthem

America the dutiful
Her sheep unroaming range.
Buying guns and killing sons
While rooting out the strange.
No unwhite skin shall live within
And women’s bodies are all sin,
Where greed grabs got
And holds the lot
Armed armful by armedful.
With two different songs
To hide their wrongs
They make us sing along.
Republicans kiss rich men’s buns
And Democrats aren’t much better.
Where voters found
We’re just cloned clowns
Whose check is mailed never.
With no incense in or outcense bin
We burn nonsense today,
A product which the world is rich,
With infinite supply.
So hey I say forget fair pay
All money goes to them.
They hug their bills for further ills
And wish we’d go away.
America the dutiful
You’ve so forgotten your way.
And this curse will get much worse
Unless we work our say.

Conversation with Wife 9

Conversation with Wife 9

I used to hunt moot with my grandfather in the fall.

“Did you ever hunt mime?”

Oh yes, loved to watch their silent screams,
and I saved on imaginary bullets.

“You’re a little strange.”

That’s only because I reign myself in,
otherwise I’d be way strange.

“How about if you sunned yourself in?”

??? – can’t remember what I said.

“Reigned.”

Ah, yes.

“It’s not so nice having the tables turned, is it?”

Is okay as long as the chairs are turned too.

ANGEL

September 11th, 2014

ANGEL

Not like a person perhaps
but a thing, a mode, an energy
moving through us, through what we’re in

An angel

Within and like, waving a magic wand

An angel offering relief
an angel as a wellspring of relief
secreting relief
oozing relief like aspirin or booze

An angel with a magic scalpal wand
wanting an angel with a magic virtual scalpal
helping me get through this

Scalpal my afflictions away
have process take care of them
heal them, far away from me, please

Blessed burn
cauterization
sealing healing
like a wax stamp
promises secure
delivery

Love like pindrops
limbs coming to life
being in this stuff
swimming it like liquid
in a liquid
amniotic

Tunnel of yessedness
