I don't want to tell the truth
Or be a ghost just yet
no, I'd rather smoke cool
At the bottom of the world
Listen to the jazz of skulls
written metric ending lines

You should cry in shadows
Know how to feel to feel
staggering the quiver lip
let the rooftop music play
When you are around
Bees buzz for your honey

Be a mountain and make
Everyone wriggle like snakes
On their bellies to your top

Be the lady that disappears
Behind her hair that waves

Be open to the past
and the pain she brings
that shoots up the spine
electric like a razor blade

I want you to bury me
in Parisian shades of green
To cover my bare shoulder
with a blanket forever

Just an exercise....


The Old Man possessed her, the Witch. She was hunched over a table, breaking every bone in the child's body. It was an arduous task. So many bones. She raised her head, eyes knowing, someone was out there - watching, listening to each wet snap of marrow. She had no cause for concern. A smile cracked over her rigid face. Gums swollen around her teeth.

"Just try and stop me," she whispered.

From atop the mountain and inside his little house, the Old Man watched flies buzz around the meal laid out before him. Platters and plates with stacks of meat piled sumptuously, candied yams and asparagus, goblets of fresh milk and wine, the big stink of a decomposing rack of lamb, moldy bread, and rotten eggs.

"I have cooked this meal for you, my friends," he said over the nauseating din of insect wings. Rubbing his hands together proudly, he laughed.

"I have invited you into my house as guests, I want you all to know - I want every one of you to realize that I have a special place in my heart for all of you. Each and every one of you is special. As eggs, you have grown before my very eyes and I love what I fuckin' see today. I love it so goddamn much."

He fell into a trance just then. Eyes rolling into the back of his head. Giggling with delight, he started to sputter up vomit - a yellow pus from his mouth like creamed corn or Vaseline. The thick, lumpy "ungh" as he gasped for air and fell to his knees. Hands on the floor, he coughed up more phlegm. Yellow at first, but after an hour or so it changed to black. Veins at his temples raised vascular, his eyes bloodshot, he died right there on the floor in a pool of his own bodily fluids. Stomach bile and blood. His lifeless corpse, expressionless face, mouth open - a single black fly crawled out over his lips, and flew away.

she had a face made of gold
who will know? who will know
who will know your touch
all the hawks will watch
when you come back home
to the East where you're from
when you come we will lie
with our bodies bent open
in the fields that remained
after the burning of the Sun
we wait for you, please come

come
soon
you
Sun
burn
open
light
move
East
us

if i could sleep
between each line
and watch the rooster crow
and feel his feathers shine
between each line
then i will know

wake me up
in the middle
of my dreams
when i meddle
with the nuns
and all their nonsense

i want to be the leader shooting like an arrow at the heart
ready to break thru and make the first incision in the meat
i want to feel the blood flow thru me around me above and below
i want to feel the snap of bone like a bundle of twigs broken by the knee
i want all the marrow to come sliding out like snake that has been
cooped up and waiting for 1,000 years to see the light of day
are you ready and if you want we can all start shooting now

Mugwump

i love you like a rock
i love you hard and in oceans
i love you boulders tumbling down
i love you cracking the mantle
releasing steam from the Earth
i love you wide as canyons
i love your pebbles smooth
with my water, now you know
i love you from inside stars
that cave in over time
to explode and scatter
all their elements
and that is where
you come from too
and I am stardust
and I made circles
within circles
within circles
and i want to know
that time is a circle
and it coils in
the past is gone
and so is now

can you come closer
to the gun
and open your eyes a little
i want you to see this
i want you to see it doesn't matter
i want you to see all matter
i want you to see how you were once a child
i want you to see that in old age
in old age you curl up around the edges
in old age you can dream
and everything is as thin as paper
and you're just waiting to break thru it
to punch a hole in the big lie
and you can look inside and see
no, see, you see...
and you start mumbling then
"Sun, moon, sky... sky explodes
open stars, soon soon soon
she's at the door
and slowly turns then
her eyes smile
Sun. Sun. Open.
She's opening the door now"
You come closer
calm and open as the Sun
serene in your words
your wet tongue to speak
Eyes like tigers
resting in the shade
and you come closer
Look inside

Look inside and see

they gave me a pen and some paper
and said "write your dreams here
if you would be so kind..."
and slid them across the table
and eyed me coldly like cats
from above
It all came caving in finely
interwoven and tight
no spaces or holes or gaps
it was everything i had ever
dreamed and thought before
it all came in the form of words
they were nothing but sounds
to make ideas with my symbols
my words were working away

I said
the Sky, come
and it came
and I told the stars
Stars shine now
and they did
and I said to the Sun
come, you now, Sun
and he said "Soon"
I whispered to the moon
from atop a mountain
"Hey, you there
please come closer
then go away again"
and it did

and everything is white
all the lines are white
all the spaces in between are white
all the letters are white
on white parchment
with white thoughts
i came clean
i am pure
I am around the Sun
I am unabased, cabron
I listen for the rings
I can see your sentence
I could walk across the walk
I walked across the water
I did it for always and ever
and they didn't want me to
and they pretended I couldn't
but I did and they saw and I said
"You have shut your eyes
and turned away for so long
we are now walking the wrong way
and we aren't watching where
we're going anymore, my God!"

But no wait that's not a story
but no we're are in control
We ain't in control
We never in control
We are controlled
We control nothing
and can think or not

No nothing never
Yes everything always
Everything is always yes
Nothing is never no
Slowly we come around
we board ships and shuttles
we leave behind all we know
we need to leave our failure
we want to crush the skulls
of our children for mercy
we can feel the troops shaking
in their fallen soldier suits
we can feel the deck of cards
shuffle in the palms
and all the spades are gone
and the Kings and Queens are dance

Move
I said move
She turns slowly
every movement is cool
precise as a surgeon
cutting out the scenes
she can turn to me
and see without her eyes
and sense there is nothing
she can hear the cats
the urban strays that stayed
and meowed in their packs
hustle the alleys where
we once were rumored within

get it out
shake it out
do anything
without a doubt

claw the walls
climb the hills
eat some food
before your pills

i dive deep into oceans
and let water wrap around
every bone in my body

and i become water
and it's blue and green
you see, i always was

in every shape makes
motion moves the ocean
thru her alluring tides

i hold my lip and tongue and mumble from mouth
balding age around my eyes and nose droops low
i can come gradual time rough soft wrinkle coos
of delight from time gone by gone by gone by
out electric from fingertips to elbow and below
i bellow mellow out my mouth 'round teeth
tongue skull seductive trapped in mind is fine
works best the bone fragmented segments
mezzanine morphine mutual mescal motion
move moon tug tidal the planet core conforms

the huntsman is in your blood
the desire for meat and bone
and the hunt
the desire to leap into action
to hide inside forests
to come at night, cold and cocked
loaded with might and what may come

wait
wait until dark
until dark
dark dark dark dark
wait for dark
the dark that can
cover your eyes
your soul
you mind
the dark that came with God
the dark that once was eternal
that darkness that will come again
the dark that is forever
before we came
and once we're gone
the dark
the dark that doesn't need your eyes to see it
the dark that can reach the shores
that can come over vast galaxies
that can smother you as you die
and fill your mouth and dreams
the darkness that destroys desire

Echopraxia is the involuntary repetition or imitation of the observed movements of another.

move your bones wriggle
around beneath boulders
go on, shrug your shoulders

struggle starve strive for
freedom from the soul
let go, come back, clap hands

administer the mind to
make it a habit goddammit
& love within throughout

Be the lady that disappears
Behind her hair that waves



Wonderful!

where we go when
we speak in riddles
and show some skin

where all our water
circles smooth as clouds
circles singing thru
the atmosphere above

where we wither youth and
never know soon enough
how or why or whatever

I spilled 100 buckets of blood
down the wells and now they've gone
and seeped thru all the soil
And let me tell you
My friend

I kicked buckets over cliffs and down the drain
I kicked those buckets
forever revenge in the crevice
To ravage her salacious
smooth and rolling hills til the end

what can i say
say say say say

rush up my veins
like the sun's rays
and make the way
the way the way


don't discover
your halo yet

tangled gentle
adrift in trees

record the roar
made by the sea
and spun in gold

lie down in mounds
and measure time

get on alone
leave with nothing
