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.

In Everywhere Area

QUITE HONESTLY 

Jesus is my PPE. 


BUDDY NO

Everybody’s most at risk. 
All ethnicities and pronouns.
Motherfuckers and otherfuckers.

Or the lady that lives behind you. 
Crying her eyes out.


GOO BOY 

Buddy.
Heesa goo boy.

The Final Mix


THIS IS NOT A TOY

I workshopped it in grad school.


SILENCE IS VIOLENCE

To the face of serenity a raucous boot.


COMPLACENCY

The great white father of all failure.


HE BORED ME THE OTHER NIGHT

All he did was talk about Trump.
Yeah Trump.
You know, the President?


CONTESTED SPACE

Art museum loading dock.


SEEKING VICTIMHOOD?

Let us help.


TRUTH

Now available in genuine Italian leather.


LOOK WHO’S TALKING

Your grandmother tells me
You don’t do a damn thing
All day long.


THE FINAL MIX

Across the miles, aisles,
Vacant lots, vacation spots,
Valleys, alleys,
Manifest destiny,
Las Vegas residency.


TOO LATE FOR MIRACLES

I set myself out curbside for bulky item pickup.
Crickets chanting: plan b plan b plan b.
Lizards loyal to three little pigs wolfed them down.


WHERE I’M SORT OF AT

Bats cracking beetle backs
Sucking out the need to bash
Head first into the side of the
Black Sabbath reeducation camp.


HERE’S THE THING WITH THAT

As long as my head’s in da game
Ima keep playing.
Bring your lawn chairs.


WHAT HAPPENED WAS

Content creators, artists, influencers
Fired, canceled, or de-platformed,
Derailment on the fast track,
Killing all hopes on board.


RECOMMENDED FOR YOU

A killer hook.
The dopest flow.


AFTER INTIMACY

Now what?


KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK

Room service.


SURPLUS

Cawing crows, crowing cocks,
Desert floors and mountain tops,
Mixed race bots, Tater tots,
Non-binary mermaids,
Papier-mâché pricks,
Cherries, peaches, apricots.

As Tensions Simmer

You still with that outfit in Spain?
And how are we identifying today?
Do you have your mask?
Can I get a witness up in here?
You need a tissue?
Are you having a moment?
Is she grabbing your guyses drinks?
How do you like your eggs?
Isn’t there a Nigerian banker who needs my account number?
Are we actually a nebula?
Who knew coins had a gender?
Parliament said what?
I know, right?
Sound like something you might like?

See the problem is is
The atom splits the difference
Between objects of production and modes of desire,
Parts and service,
Half waffle, whole waffle,
It happens more often than you think,
Net, clock, and pace,
From skill saw to standup bass,
From prayer to payroll,
You needa manage it all from one place.
Play it cool.
Its going to swing back the other way.
But it ain’t going to happen for you if you try too hard.
I don’t know how many times I’ve told you that.

I Do Voices

Soothsayers and gainsayers
Yeasayers and naysayers
Nirvana attainers
Crane operators
Oh say can you see sayers
Live streamers
Deep divers
Unpackers
Informers
Convention buckers
Boundary blurrers
Bounty hunters
Plotters and potters
Pilot car drivers
Friends of the court
Friends of the library
Oyster pirates
Gong Show winners
Speedpainters
Real hittas, sultans of swat
Sugar daddies in kilts fishing for sturgeon
Baby mamas giving those bagpipes a hand rubbed wax finish.
Eschatologists on a praise break
People in the other person’s shoes.
And the entire sales team at the #1 volume dealership in North America.

The dear
The darling
The demonic, the philharmonic
The differently abled
The sketchy, the sharp
The sloppy, the choppy
The cutters and pasters
The heavily sedated
The tenured, the at will
The time servers
The good behavers
The due respecters
The teahouse texters
The brainstorm chasers
The stupid haters
The pussy whipped
The tweet-summoned
The polarized
The plagiarized
The plangent
The tangential
The flummoxed
The hollered at
The wrecked, the reckless
My uncle Mal in tech support.

If You Value Your LIfe

Railroad car
On a siding in the desert.
Old tags.
Mass for shut ins
Is a powerful plugin
But a mind is a terrible thing to change.
And there he is. 
Crying like a bitch.
Locally heavy at times
And all times are approximate.
Hath not even a short-term rental
Squat to lay his head.

Above, clockwise, from far left:
A punnet of strawberries,
A thimble collection,
St Anthony,
Tall ships,
Prayer flags aflutter,
Basque running sheep,
Treasure chests,
A timetable,
A jury summons,
Mint ginger cake balls,
And a video of Throbbing Gristle.

The medication is kicking in.
Self-prescribed denial.
5000 hours of analysis saved.
Took a victory lap in a chariot pulled by a team of alligators
While forgiving those who have trespassed against me.
Builds trust and engagement.
Everybody has my best interests at heart.
Giraffeck Parque Farmacy:
The nexus of health, value, and happiness
To fill my electronic shopping cart
To make my holidays even more magical!
Strawberry lemonade flavor please.
