A Bridge Not Far

The skeleton —
a bridge which carries flesh
from birth to death

wrapped too tight – foto by Smith

Dung or Diamond

On my lack of fame and fortune
I keep baiting the stream
But nobody bites

As for peace and understanding
I chase the spirit
I follow the sprite

— Smith, 1990

Fallen sparrow tracks
In the snow lead to nowhere
Follow anyway

Down To Animal Bone

Me big
Me want
Me take
Me smart too
Probably get away with it

Gnosis – foto by Smith


Buried beneath
Your borrowed beliefs

A moon toad
Asleep on the river

No beginning
No end

No place to be
Or have been

small signs of logic

suits – foto by Smith at Vintage Deering W 14 St, Tremont

Original Cinema

Small signs of logic pool to larger sockets,
Sprocket rules of flow

Autumn snap cracks cross
Yes no boundary, now then grime
And the even Steven myth

Add in :
   Coffee rotation
   Bee pollen white crystal
   Hotel Babylon
   One million years TV
   Suburban life halfsounds
   Fungus eyes
   Hot dogs with blood and pus
   Artists of perpetual perception
   Fat bottom womyn in glass bottom boats
   Nature and man gone wrong
And this war of little mist
And reefer sticks
The two soul sham
Of wham bam action ma’am
(long way virgin slim to glass ceiling fan)

This bad boy business
Nuzzles nose near own navel lint
Bug belly blood in amber
Waves of shame
Dinosaur dregs dynamo hum
Blood rough ready rumble
Reflecting clone,
Trade in tiny tins

Liberty’s filthy whore Profit
Loss enough for now

— Smith, 1994

no desire, no fire, no fur

blue moon – foto by Smith taken at Chiplis Studio

Love, Lust & Atlantis

Big cups of American coffee cheat rent
White bread rat dead

She and he honkeys
Random willed sex smiles
Eco eat spun doc wet work
Paid by skin inch

Collective shoals hustle bush
Shapes shadow symbol
Vargas vaginas piss shit shower shave
Customized codes of conduct

Sheep indivisible suckle our young
On the teats of the old
Dewey without decimal
Rather India-inked Indians
Than dead baby truth

Missed and Mr. P.R. Clone
Dildo ditto dodo
Mime mind
Sheep asleep
Next dead guy to cum along
Arguments amongst the monks

Broken soul mesa, America
No desire
No fire
No fur

— Smith, 1994

Myth Amerika

O Red White and Blue-eyed Lady, I am
but a fey ray in the King Kong of your
clutch, a dank doodle dandy, Jekyll haired
Hyde. For to spite your apple laid Annies,
your tacky plastic seams of care slighted
bellies begetting sewer, catfish cauls,
you fed my me my folly, bled my need
of calling,

Beshat, of fox on Farley.

— Smith, 1972

3rd Eye – foto by Smith

Doing Time

A leaf alive
Another life
A lie let lie too long . . .

Moon meat and Moses
Sucker song along
New lie highway
Old road alone

Need new lies
Old lie don’t do
New supposes
For falling through

New excuses
And pretty parts
To hide abusive
Hollow hearts

Toys for boys
Swirls for girls
Swine to enjoy
Those hurled pearls

For Babylon baby
Ain’t another time
There ain’t no maybe
It’s this life’s the crime

And I’m doing time

— Smith, 2004
