POEMS

(RECENTLY SELECTED)

UPSTATE SUITE:

FLOWERS

UN-BLESS FLOWERS WITH SONG
CARESS NIGHT
WITH SENSES OF A NEW BEAST
HOLD TIGHT A CODE
UNDEFINED BY TIME
LAY SOFTLY, QUIET BLANKETS OF TIME
BLOW SMOKE TOWARDS WHISPERS OF TIME

SPARKLING FREEDOM IS
STRANGLED THOUGHT
THEREFORE, BREATH
A FAVORITE OPTION

SLEEP TO HEAL
WAKE TO STEAL MORE LIGHT
THINK,
CONVINCE THE WORLD
IT CAN BE DONE

ORCHARDS

TRANSCENDENTAL POSTMAN WALKING ICE BEAT
TAKE OFF CLOTHS AND TOUCH
YOUR UN-SHOWERED BODY
AS THOUGH YOU RODE A TRIUMPH MOTORCYCLE
TO BIG DEEP
WHERE FLOATING ABOVE BLUE STREAMS
HER DELICATE BREASTS REMIND YOU OF HEALTH, BLISS, OUR
RESIDING PLANET
TRUE NATURE AS FELT
THROUGH MEMORY CELLS
NOW DANCING ABOVE YOUR RAISED HAIRS,
REACHING CLOSER TO WALKS
OF FOGGY NIGHT
REAL NIGHT
NIGHT ONLY TOUCHED BY SPIRITS OF SACRED JOURNEYS
UNTOLD TO NEGLIGENT BODIES
BLISSFUL SLEEP OF ACTIVE THOUGHT

BUILDING IS WALLS OF WIND
CHIMES YOU CRY
NEVER FORGET WISDOM OF DEATH
CARESS OF MOISTURE
LIMBS OF FORTUNE
CLOSENESS OF APPLES (THEIR BITE,
TENDER
CORE
FOREVER INGESTING
PLEASURABLE TEETH)

LOOK
ACROSS ALL THIS LIFE
DUST YOU NOSE
INTO STOMACH OF LETTERS MAILED:

TO FORGIVING GREAT DAY,
I’LL NEVER WASTE MY HAPPINESS
SINCERELY,
A THOUSAND BIRCH TWIGS
(NO ASCETICISM INVOLVED)

P.S. POST-PERSON IS CORRECT HANDED

AND WHY?

FEEL AT EASE
I WORK MY MIND INTO A FIXATION OF POSITIVE
MAY I PORTRAY THIS TO A SOCIETY WHO GREETS ME?
I’LL DO MY BEST TO EVOKE LOVE
I’LL YOU MY BODY AS A TOOL FOR MONEY
I’LL DANCE AT MIDNIGHT AT THE SIGHT OF HER
I’LL CLOSE MY EYES TO LIE TONIGHT AS COMFORTABLE
I’LL TYPE WORDS IN ORDERS I LIKE
I’LL SAY THEM OUT LOUD FROM TIME TO TIME TO TIME
AS VIBRATIONS
OH, WE’RE IN IT NOW
RAINFORESTS, OVER
OXYGEN, WEARING THIN
WHAT ABOUT DANCING PARTIES?
INFINITE
I’M A DUMB LANKAN MAN
ART OF HER
IS A LIFE

BEFORE PUNCHING CLOCK

EMPTY PASS
GLASS OF SAND
HAND IS FROZEN ON LOWER BACK
BONES AND CURVE AT CORRECT PLACES
SADNESS IS HUMAN IN DOSES
UNBEARABLE
RELIEF IN SANITARY DÉCOR
SMELLS OF HER CHURCH
CORRECTIONS TO NOTHING THAT MAY
INTERFERE WITH TOUCH
PLEASE, KNOW MY LOVE IS ETERNAL
BEYOND WALLS OF FLESH AND MEMORY
IT WALKS WITH YOU
ALWAYS ASKING FOR AN ARM AROUND ITS WAIST
WISHING YOU HAPPINESS IN DAILY ROUTINE
POURING WINE
RUBBING FEET AND ANKLES
SMILE OF SUPREME MONASTERY
BACKYARD POOLS OF CHLORINE CLARITY
COUCHES OF US
BELIEF IN US
US AS ONE
US AS FUN
US AS LOVE
US AS US

HONEYCOMBS

THIS PLACE IS NO SIMULATION
IT’S HONEYCOMB
SERVE THE QUEEN, DEATH PILOT –
STICKY, SWEET, ENCLOSED
FOREVER HUM
HUM
HONEY,
WE DON’T WORK FOR THE GOVERNMENT
YES, THEY ARE AFTER US
WE MUST RETIRE IN NATURE
SHE’LL COVER
NEST OF OURS
UNDER PEAT-MOSS
HUM
YELLOW & BLACK STRIPES
DO THEY RETIRE IN OCTAGONS?
HIGH ON SUGAR ALL THE TIME?
THEIR ORGIES OBSCENE
CULT OF FLOWERS
COLORS MADE INTO OOZE
FLIGHT OF RECURRING ECHOS
HUM
IT IS OFFICIAL
WE ARE GENDERLESS
THERE’S A WAY OUT
PAST THE BROOK, BY COFFEE LIGHT,
OVER CAMPAIGN SIGNS, AROUND
SLEEPING GAURDS, HANDSHAKES, NODS,
NEAR GARDENS OF TEA,
MYSTERIES OF EVERLASTING HISTORY
HARMONY IN EXPLOSIVE CHAOS
WE’RE CLEAR SAFE BEES KNOW YOU
TRANSFORMATION LIKE QUEEN, YET
NOT STUCK NOT RESTLESS FREEDOM TO CARE LESS
ANTIOXIDANTS JUMP HORIZONTAL
HUM

HIVE SMASHED ON GROUND
A SEVERED TREE LIMB FOUND
