My Foot Fell Asleep And It’s Having Those Dreams

My Foot Fell Asleep And It’s Having Those Dreams

 

my foot fell asleep

and it’s having those dreams again, where

 

we alphabetized all our typos

and did sex stuff in front of them

 

until the correct spellings came out

I Love Vladimir Mayakovsky

I Love Vladimir Mayakovsky

“I love Vladimir Mayakovsky”

The way she says this
goes over with me like
fresh flowers allowed
to grow in the park

she’s just read “Great Big Hell of a City”
says she can relate to the moon now

Night loved itself out
the only line that ever
had to be written

Tiny Babies

29 Dec

tiny babies

little highway veins
working together
w/ shiny carburetor lungs
defying the unimportance
of everything

young enough still
to regard each footstep
as a holy mission

brand new summers
wait to pick you up
at the train station

you take a seat
next to the days
you’ll remember best

Poor Me

28 Dec

poor me

life overhears everything
the sounds of

your voice on a telephone
talking

about calendars and your
need to let go

rainbows go color blind
rivers get lost

birds become allergic
to the sky

the sun gets laid
off

the ground puts on
a jacket

dandelions mistake pepsi
for coke

crayons lose their way
back to the wax

butterflies de-evolve into walking
sticks of margarine

and where am I in all
of this

I’m the guy standing at the
front of the line

it’s my turn to lose you

tree lines catch pneumonia and develop
an aversion for pixie sticks

I don’t want to let you
go

You’re Beautiful and I’m Alone

26 Dec

You’re Beautiful and I’m Alone

you’re beautiful and I’m alone
and the one thing we have
in common is that there’s
not one god-damned thing
we can do about it

Dirt Road Graveyard

Dirt Road Graveyard

You’re like a graveyard

on an old dirt road

filled with ghosts

and fun to hold

séances in

Alone For The Holidays

17 Nov

alone for the holidays

 

I had to masturbate four times

today because that’s what kind

of day it was

 

sometimes I would think of you

 

tug stroke stroke

 

sometimes I would think of happy things

like a beautiful day

 

stroke stroke tug

 

sometimes I would think of you
