Comets (fragment sequence #2 1/5/14)


a matchbox
as a briefcase
for tears
___________

a goat is alone
wheezing the spearmint
with his hind legs broken
_____________________

the castle was carbonized
by the sneeze of the bomb
and the west wind
______________________

i will fill my oven
with paper and ink
and cook a dream
_____________________

the haircolors of rich-girls
turn me to straw
an artist over warm supper who starves for love and skin
_________________________

i attended the party alone
i stayed alone
despite three dozen greetings
_____________________________

charge your battery with the sky
i bet it will run for days
______________________________

the heart is a mine in the earth of man
we are shoveling for tenderness
sparring other diggers for little scavbs of compassion
___________________________________ _________________

one day
a comet
will explain my love for the world
EUTHANASIA
___________________________________

in high school
i clenched my belly
hungry for touch
while girls i knew kissed horses in the hallway

__________________________________

during the 8th month of harboring envy
i sired broken glass
from my asshole

______________________________

i want to spend my birthday
inside of my cake
-shrink rays and chocolate fudge
_________________________________

i dont worry about anything
i would have to think highly of myself to worry
i dont know enough to worry
__________________________________
a shy bird will start to cherish the friend who shares the worm more than the worm who offers it its friend
_______________________________________ _______

i am a buzzard in a culture full of vultures who believe they are condors
