Embodied Practices

 
"Vampire," by Edvard Munch

CAN’T SEEM TO LET YOU GO 

My body is dematerializing.
My car is disintegrating.
And still they call it felony evading.

 

THAT’S CUTE 

What is it?

 

TESTING TESTING 1-2-3 

Is there a She-Ra in the house?

 

EMBODIED PRACTICES 

I’ve been single all my life.
She married the same man three times.

 

PISSING ON PAYWALLS

So gangster and chill.
In subzero temperatures.
It freezes as soon as it hits.

 

AND I THOUGHT 

Of all the times.

 

OTHER THAN THAT 

To be honest
It’s just hey.

 

IS THERE A LIMIT? 

No there is no limit.

 

PRIVILEGING SUCCESS 

Ranked #1.

 

DON’T HANG ON THAT 

And that’s why.
Right there.

 

TAKE IT DOWN 

Like let it be up for three days
And then take it down.

 

YEAH BUT SEE 

If I just do…
If I just...Wow!
Did you see that?

 

SO FUNNY 

I saved my mother’s chonklas
In order to self harm.
She delivered her own elbow smash.
Four million grandkids

 

THERE’S A VIDEO 

That’s nothing but trash
Trucks. He loves it.

 

I MAY HAVE SAID THIS ALREADY BUT 

It’s not too late to save.

The Influencer

 
Utami Hayashishita, photo by Dynamite Kansai

Drinking a smoothie, reading her device.
Stabs the straw right into her forehead.
Grimaces like a large metal wash basin.
It’s funny because like
Her livestream is so perfect.
I touched her, she felt like a screen.

Though I never forewarn a screen
That I’m going to touch it.
You can’t be too careful or correct.
Mere affection is so suspect these days.
“I’ll wrestle with you in strength of love.”
Made her laugh and bounce on the seat.

She’s thicc, but it’s all cloud storage.
Super self-aware, super cute and extra,
Smart, strong and bold.
Her legs a visionary pairing.
Her body a recharging station.
She influences me to hit Enter.

Wedge pillows and pillow rolls.
Dakimakura and bolsters.
The bed is a map of the Tokyo subway system.
We've got all-line passes.
Willing to shed tears on a first date.
Super huge fans of relentless.

Oh, What a Time!

A little while ago I thought it was Friday night.

Just now I thought it was Sunday night.

It’s actually Tuesday night.

PDT.


Here’s today’s post from WUTR:

Two poems with longish titles — Write Up The Road Media

Here’s a photo by Allen J. Schaben

from a Los Angeles Times article about cruising in the San Fernando Valley.

Get the photo and zoom in. It's great. Such life! I emailed him a kudo.
