Literature
Meditation
"let's try to meditate today"
we tried to meditate today
for five minutes
thinking of nothing
concentrating on clearing away
arrays and splayed routes
like paper routes
out of there
cobwebs brushed aside
cleaned the playing field
to play and play
and play like the mind's manhattan
like the hub
the grand central
the pearly gates of the greats
are open roped in "LET EM IN!"
let in the newfound
shoes
bruised broods and
clueless fools and
impressionistic folk art
the rushing daytrotters
slowing totters
people met never met maybe will meet tomorrow
maybe have always been there
and the new ones that stay the remnants of
a mind once cluttered
a mind before the meditation when everything was everywhere
staring every which troubling hub in the face
multiplying exponentially eventually exploding
coating the mind's walls in this:
"let's try to meditate today"
and in those five minutes we learned
how everything could be fixed
and why it wouldn't be:
remnants slipping through the conscious to the s

Literature
Forgotten Nights
They'll find
rebellion at the root of
every eyelash,
copper streaks and
silver starbursts in
locks of lots of
ribbons of hair
and pantomime,
she does,
at the end of the hall
on the floor,
lavatory bundles
when she clutches the bowl
wondering
"am I here" at all?
They'll find
all the strange
doubled up and half-hidden
hit and run
passed, blacked, maxed
out,
and she wonders
"was I there"
in the bowels of a
forgotten night.

contains an

quiver,
some low thump

into a golden,

wonderful,
never heard in nature
(particularly in tune with
acoustic guitar)
like songs played on records
played on speakers
or a

symphony,

the gasp of substandard perfections.

Literature
Social Ease
Social ease
did not come easily
I'm pleased to be the archetype "other"
undefined but by "stranger"
like I'm some home grown
some negative unknown
as if you don't see me in the halls
bathroom stalls and
the walls around my bed don't touch down
in the same landfill
yours hit
as if a bit of my existence is the "other"
and that's
it.
I'm not offended
I just wonder
if you'd say the same to a little me,
hidden in long hair, green jacket, library lunches,
when I wasn't an "other" at all,
when I was a _______ and you were still
the one casting phrases, nicknames at
bigger drifters
before I learned to speak because
see,
social ease
is not inherent
and we who learn by trying
will never really mind
some title
titled
by the eased-ies.
You see me now
and,
well,
that's the point.

Literature
justice
doing justice
somehow
by knowing;
what I don't remember
just became part
of the
mess
I'm
currently covered in,
wish I could do justice
through a story but
it's vaguely
thinly spread
everywhere
and everyme;
I
am history.

For Kami
there's a kami
in the middle
of my choco creamy pie
and it's only that
delicious cause
her crust is never dry
she's a pastry
with a passion
in a search for resolution
she's a rainy
when it's cloudy
(just enough to let the pooch in)
see I never
liked the outer
of a pecan pumpkin cherry
and my choco-
kami covering
is cozy crumble'd dairy

Literature
The Tool
Given the proper materials
I will
carve into each curve of
spontaneous thought,
I'll
dissect a two-word exchange,
a bit lip,
a held back smile
I'll
wonder why the pigeon-toed many are
more self-conscious or
more hesitant or
ready to wage war on a unique lower leg structure,
maybe,
they're reaching destinations quicker
but I'm only after why
timely's not desired.
Given
no
proper materials,
my toes curve in at just the same angle –
like the neanderthal relief
of losing the tool.

Literature
My Elevator
Went for a walk
with other intentions,
hopeful glances in his direction
til you reached descending
elevator,
closed doors flaw a fleeting possibility
implausible, really,
but it twittered as you twiddled down the hall
and it smothered softly between the
closing
metal
doors.
And now, you have to go on a walk.
Your jolting nausea's no way bred
from the downward pull of the box,
feet locked in gravity's grumble
then the rumble of the ground floor's approach.
It's cold.
It's self-reflection you despise but predictably it
tries your stable steps,
wondering what the walk might feel like
misted by another voice,
crisply in the air darting through quiet grounds
and muffled around corners,
he chuckles and you
finally
make that eye contact,
not the friendly one
but friendly in essence
in substance it impresses on all nerves
and vessels are beating the rhythm of hope
like you know
potential exists.
Potential doesn't always exist,
by the muffled muttering tones
headphones pump
and the solitary cla

Literature
One Day
One day, in a
white-faced reflection
there might be creased features or
lines driving in between
a nose that used to be smoother,
lips that were plump,
eyelids taut and high.
Maybe the shock of a scar,
or subdued slash
where freckles once roamed,
blemishes faded,
beauty marks pocking away
to a sagging earlobe:
Once upon a time,
there was a girl who never thought she was beautiful
and she wore shorts with tank tops,
the largest earrings, and
dark eye shadow.
You don't need to curl your eyelashes when your lids are so dark,
you don't need concealer to hide invisible blemishes,
and a nose always fits the face it's on
(really).
She had
the
softest lips,
and boys told her she used them well.
Her beauty was translucent to the
odds of the extrovert,
the appeal of the ageless.
Once upon a girl there
is always time to realize
white faces crumble and
even confidence steeps to ripe,
whatever the age,
and time
can't make
soft
lips
sandy.
One day,
reflections bite the bitter,
regret's blue-eyed bea

Literature
Why I Did It
you can be the bigger person until
your eyes grow dim,
until your possibilities grow,
fatten up, piggies waiting for slop.
but really life's made by
yes
and
no;
action
and response,
and you can wait in line for the
knife because
they hand fresh apples out to those
quiet few,
or
you can tear and thrash
bite the butcher
kick
hoofed in
to
smashed teeth
skull
shattered
splattered
til you paint a fallen pen
with that captor's blood,
spell out
"REMEMBER ME"
and live by the pride
of dying.

Literature
Maternity Organically
The naïveté of the newborn
Northern thistles, still
Nobody sighs when the spring
And swift sinews loftily
Rise and raise their shadows,
Pied,
Soar'n past the unheard-of whisps
And toast their petal'd
Prowess, perfume,
To the shepherd;
He prays away the rust
And cleans by a
Mother's deft hands,
Placing thistle bouquets in
A pansy's playpen.

Literature
little touchings
little touchings are
the simplest little quivers,
and I've never had a heart speed
so suddenly
as the blood-pumping pumper
sending shivers
to the capillaries and
catapulting coronary
quivers,
the simplest,
the subtlest,
the then shattering jolt of
a new love story.

Literature
The Trained Thief
Cory's got a worthy little swindle
with a smile and style aworth aproper thief,
strolling breaking into bakeries, fighting morals,
quoting chortles he's ahearing from the fearing
'fore he breaks their legs and
thugs their skulls for monies -
he can buy the sky, says Cory,
if he'd grow a spine in time for prying open
the clams, free for both the robbers and the robbed,
soup you'd strain to flavor -
learn the cook's lore -
do something sinless with the stolen.

Literature
Clipping
In a pretty puttered piece upon
a stack or ream or pile
of a bound or tattered volume
and a mag on proper style
with the pied provision'd articles
defining never heard's,
I found my inspiration
in a single subtle word.

Literature
Snoring
People, it seems, are getting worse.
Ill-ease soul-searchers and
The scars they put faith in,
Waiting for their miscalculated
Impediments to
Flow relevant and
Tarot cards to wield like in a way
Of sense.
The condition, prescribed, isn't responsible
For the applications of misery;
There are others than artisanship
And no work can be
Logical by
Being senseless.
Sleepers are dreaming themselves
Into the obscurity of movement,
A subtle twitch of the brow and
Tell me what snoring stands for,
When it's just a mis-made nasal passage,
Sensibly.

Literature
now accepting applications...
the smoke beneath your bed finally finds you
staring crooked in broken mirrors
searching frantically
for the fire of your former features
forever and ember
still breath and false starts
'til it whispers
sure
the universe is big business
constantly expanding
but the fact of (the) matter is
it desires you deposit d.n.a.
demanding genetic building blocks
on which to lay its foundation
and though the future of father's daughters
is
certainly uncertain
the sun set's assured
eventual
consumption
of
everything
meanwhile
I'm eagerly anticipating the arrival
of the non-linear one-liner
something like:
yes it all implodes in infinity
but buildings retain their names anyway
or
mountains and their silhouettes sit still
yet oppose portraits on general principal
opinions vary
the stars think they're brilliant
the general population favors vague impressions
and
most allow the words
(to escape unnoticed)

requiem for a resurrection
watch
watch
where you lay your
hands
keep that sharkjaw grin in check
I'm counting teeth
and I believe
in skindeep songs
dancin' electric
building damaged stars
and heart-shaped scar
tissue
I said watch
watch
where you lay
your hands
'cuz I remark to emptiness
and I explain
in jest
shaping words like holes
to make a home
inside your chest so
swallow
swallow big!
(make room for nothing)
just watch
watch

Literature
synonyms for circular
announcing honeymoon affirmations!
waxing and waning
'til silver tongues
lose their proper polish
and unlined clouds
let rain fall
naked
justifiably taken (for tears)
at face value
it's custom made fate
tailored to individual distaste
and the grating
grateful company
of something to complain about
all the while wishing we were
someone
somewhere else
where forever stands
firmer
in its convictions
but instead
finding
friends
is what we make of it
and love laughs last
not
lasting
it trips the tongue
and trumps the heart
every time
but
oh
how it suits you!

rome...
brace yourself
for the breaking point
brothers and sisters
the sky's falling
and I've a feeling
this time we
all
get a view
while out west we're wearing
dirty looks
smirks and smiles
skin stretched thin
and eyes gone empty
(etched in expectation of stars)
back east
they're busy
rebuilding
anxiously
anticipating
something new to knock down
(diligently drafting
the finest in modern condolences)
all this and more
in the latest letter
from the emperor
signed
sincerely yours,
finger on the button
and faith
waiting to be reborn
