Coming to Faith

SO WHEN I FIRST CAME TO FAITH

Four guitars, sax, trombone, keyboard, drums.


PETITION

Wassup mobster?


PRAYER

Dear God,
More signs of serendipity please.
More TV we love, Lord.


IN BED

My tongue blinked.


I REMEMBER SITTING THERE GOING

Dilettantism is violence.


YES

According to two sources.


OK NO EMERGENCIES RIGHT NOW

But that was then.


MY BRAIN

Took another nosedive.


IT’S LIKE OH

If found, please return.
Right?


I CALLED TRIPLE A

And I just started bawling.


YOU LOSE YOUR FLUID

Brakes won’t work.

Bringing to your attention...














I also blog for Head Light at Write Up The Road. 

Here are links to four recent posts from that site, by subject matter, dealing with issues like intro- and outrospection, cultural corrosion, and the effects of aging.

Asking the Right Question

DO YOU WANT ME

To pick up some of that Lebanese bologna?


WHAT’S HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE?

You working?


HE’S ALL, THEY FUCKING LEFT

I’m like, Why’d they leave?


ECUADOREAN POET, EH?

Start sharing.


WHEN YOU’VE GONE THROUGH MAX-Q

And become supersonic?
Part of that conversation?


EVER DONE THAT?

It’s a trip.


THE ONLY THING I’VE NOTICED

Is the kitties haven’t been here.
You mean to tell me
You haven’t been here either?


MY THERAPIST?

I told her about a year ago I said
I want to bash my head in with a ball peen hammer.


DONTCHA HATE IT?

I hate it.

Some Kind of Not

I’m often asked about
The camel in the recliner
Clapping at the tropical fish
Floating across the giant screen.

Even with all the evidence on my side,
I’m an expert at odds with reality.
I’m just saying it ended two nights ago.
I was born too, too late, too, you know.

Truly, Deciduously

Fighter jets landing on a fashion runway.
That ten-day period every year here in
The desert when it looks like Ireland,
With the director’s cut loudly enforced,
In the name of
Pain relief
Shift differentials
And cage diving.
Amen.

A Sketch: As Luck Would Have It

An Aztec joint called El Sol Mexicano or something like that.

She came darting around the corner like a hummingbird.

Suspended in iridescence she scanned the patio

“Cedar of Lebanon burned with sage in an abalone shell”

“A tune in Jeruvian mode” on the sound system.

I wasn’t who she was looking for,

And I was the only one there

So she shot back the same way she came.

 

Well what’s funny is

The hummingbird returns,

Same dart around the corner,

It’s still just me.

Are you?/Yes./Absolutely.

There’s this like

Potentially sort of

Half baked, pseudo profundo

 

World shifting---

Before we started kissing

We discussed diatomaceous earth mining in California.

The World Archaeological Congress in Vermillion, South Dakota.

Chinese Mexican nachos.

There is a science to all of it.

And an immoderate amount of diving and drilling.

The resultant action is what gets dreamy.
