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

cosmic Lady

Conversation with Wife 14

me – why the tub of plastic forks by the stairs?

she – I’m taking them to work.

me – but they’ve been there for weeks.

she – Cuz I keep forkgetting them.

me – so it’s your Fork U to reality?

we go east

October 5th, 2015


Dead Man’s Curve

Out at the In-laws 17

Round Dead Man’s Curve
and its Blood & Oil billboard warning
electric Miles slithering sound
we go east
to cleansing bees of parasites unsighted

Work and sweat and worry wet
we do our duty do-fully
daylong splurge
drive return
sticky fingers reggae riding

lusty prosties at their groins

October 4th, 2015


Status Report 94

Politicians lie for money
lie for fame
kill constituents to get in the game

it ain’t funny
but they’re whores for greed
need more green and silver coin
and lusty prosties at their groins

and they don’t care who bleeds
or pleads


politicians murder and steal
give em money they let you kill
their free lunch paid by your back

what a bunch of slack tacky lack
some would say since they’re killing us
self defense would be a plus

toss em in a room without food or water
and let em eat each other

then display their bones
to scare their clones
into leaving us and lies alone

Get them to listen, or ask them to leave

Lady sez this pome ain’t positive. I disagree. CEO’s and their house slaves the politicians are killing us, this country, the environment, the planet, its plants, its animals.

Self defense demands we stop them through education and enlightenment, or else jail if they won’t listen, or finally, if nothing else works, by blood in the streets . . . whatever it takes to turn them around.

If we don’t, the planet dies . . . and we ain’t got no place to go.

The fact is, we outnumber them. Our rights way outweigh theirs. Their choice is listen or leave.

capitalismCapitalism – eats its young, its old, its in-betweens

Gray day rain run
more chores galore
money out money out money out

What comes in return?

That’s easy . . .
sleep, recharge
love of companion
love for companion and cat
friends, family, folk
and never knowing next

too much on off on

chicken clock in southern France, 2006

Status Report 92

Too much on off on
day night sun
chickens pecking at plate
unaware there’s none
walking down old road
carrying others load
arriving too late
to find abode
abide in tide of tales
as eyes outside the fire wail
trials of moral trails
clean sheets, new made bed,
bathed body
are what recharge my head
