There once was a woman who had greasy fingers
From playing with a meal; she liked when it lingers
“Dish me up a plate.
Don’t make me wait.
But I like discerning between the food and the ringers.”

Walk down branching corridors,
search, perceive, decide
which way to turn, the pace to move,
finally come to a dead-end,
a place with no decisions left,
where everything makes sense,
nothing ever disturbs certainty.
Sit there alone, proud
of an achievement, of having found
-perfection-
and a blind, stubborn eternity
until realizing no one else is there,
and there is nothing left to do.
Get up, at first in denial,
crying out for all the fools
to find their way to this isle,
this little piece of heaven.
Yet no one comes.
Next, wallow in doubt,
search again for the path,
for the next branching of the way, but
it's not there, there is no solution, only the
-final-
solution.
Search for the way back instead,
certain of having chosen wrong
at some point,
but that way is now closed,
walls of certainty and arrogance
have sealed the way.
So look around for the blinking light
and a sign saying
Congratulations!
You have walked to the end of this particular mindset,
and reached a little death, a prison of the mind.
And then finally realize that
the questions were the important part,
not the answers, not the path,
not the destination,
so the labyrinth and the prison are
finally undone.

Don't ask. I have no idea.

1-14 I landet av vikingkongene

What great force of nature
Carved this rugged place,
From stone as hard as granite
It wove a coastline of frayed lace.

The mountains soar, majestic
But the valleys run so deep,
And the giants that reside here
Continue their millennia of sleep.

Issuing forth it's wayfarers,
To sail far and wide,
From turkey to Newfoundland
Their descendents still reside.

And as I complete my visit
And prepare to catch my flight,
I become much more aware
Of how this land passed on its might.

For a sense of deep foreboding
Surges through my Saxon veins,
Because the hardness that this land gave men
Clearly still remains.

The cauldron steams as they stir it,
smoldering vat of thoughts and dreams,
catching the essence of each
wayward object carefully dropped
into its unknown depths

~~~
wip: may revisit it later during this run

In a scene that's lit by Mike Cimino,
In a country that's held back the line,
I see your words appear -
Right before me
As if they were always to be mine.

You're a world away from me this instant,
Overseas and so far back in time.
Yet the messages you send
Appear so quickly
That they have to be a sign.

I stayed awake kept pressing refresh late,
Till the hotel was a silent shell.
Like the lodge portrayed in
Kubrick's Shining
It could be a heaven or a hell.

And as the night withdraws and the day implores,
And I look to find you, once again
No need to seek their
affirmation
For we all have more to learn

In this sentence of life.

Diminished Hexaverse for Clifford Brown

When I played you Jazz
I heard sound like time
had danced into space
and painted brass strokes
red and holy blue

the sound of you
like rain or flame
pause and refrain
like a train gone

and slowly
lessening
to pause a

moment
before

more.

Cold Fire: Strange Flames

She had a passion,
a quiet hunger,
that she fed with as
little emotion
as was possible,

Not that you would
have ever guessed,
she wore it well,
stoic façade,

And no one
ever knew,
not a soul,

About
how she

Burned.

Cold Fire: Strange Flames (a Diminished Hexaverse)

the strangest of flames,
which nothing changes,
and nothing consumes.
does it even burn?
eyes cannot see it.

has't forgotten,
then, fire's nature?
that fire must burn,
grow unbridled?

forced to sleep,
this cold fire
sleepwalks, dreams...

from spark,
arise!

warmth!

Vogon Love Song

Here in the frixillated bombast
of your turgid Metairie have I
come blowsing all gribbulous
moony in pale grommetry
and hoping thy footling preyers
wouldst bellicose and jellied
sing and again n'cest cafe?




Oh Remec?

1-16 Brian O'Driscoll

For the final time,
He took to his field,
Adored by the crowd,
Feared by his rivals -
A centre's centre.

With great courage,
The azzurri stood
And tried to fight,
But they were lost.

Tries came fast,
The green flew
Points mounted.

Then the
Whistle!

BOD.

3-8 Vogon Celebration

Oh great distortional day
that spreads its tenticular
embrace about each bombasted
curve making up the poignant
frixilation that I have always
thought the best and most orifice
watering aspect of your form!
Wondrous in the bonded adherence
it applies betwixt us both, my
phalleyblog is all atwitter, my
footling hunters twitch at the
thought of making malaboginia
of us both.


(yes, Ange?)

My Joyous Sizzleslurp, a Vogon poem

Grumbleyaps, on innards cuntiform,
thy vast porklyport beckons!
By joyous sizzleslurp, to and fro,
'twas the discombobulating fuddlefoam
to buzzblur uttered slurstomps.
My, now 'tis effervescent!

Omfg... I'll never write one of these again.

John Coltrane and My Pussy

Me and the cat like this music. Some of the notes sound just like meows.

Pinwheel turns,
bit by bit, in the barest
of breezes
I smile at the owner,
leaning in to rub
noses, enjoying how
her face smells newly
washed in spite of
smears on her cheeks;
A whisper of comfort
in her ears draws out
a smile, and we walk
back down the marble
hallway to where the
band is still playing.
Footsteps echo softly,
A lingering taste of
rainwater on my lips.

blind dog, a Rictameter.

blind dog.
stares back, not sad,
just unaware of me.
remembers voices, places, joys,
dreams of the park, but while outside, he falls
from the sidewalk, bumps into trees.
back home, sits and pants, tired.
you're a good friend,
blind dog.

a Tyburn. (Eh... more or less. )

Soar
Roar
Snore
Score

Smaug awakens; soars and roars, breaths fire.
Before men, he snores; by score, they fall!

The sound
Made by the first
Springtime amphibians
Harkens longer, warmer, brighter
Days, which clear our minds and lighten our souls.
Nature knows not to keep us dark
For too long, lest we wilt
And slowly die.
RIBBIT!

Kites at Trashmore

Fluttery wings dot the clouds, hovering on the wind; signalling Spring's come.

Appalachian Spring

The mountains awaken in symphonies of birdsong, deep breaths of green.

A Tetractys.

Noon
Eerie
dying light
Due night, blue sky
Fire made manifest — Sun and Moon collide,
birds fly home, in fright, singing out of time
Earth holds breath, waits
dying dark;
weirding
sight.

1-19 All of it in 45 syllables.

First
Just heat
From nothing
Expanding fast
Condensing matter
From Particle soup
Came hydrogen
Burnt in stars
Planets
Us
Then
Stars die
The light fades
Heat death prevails
The universe ends.

3-11 Nostalgia

A
moment
passes and
then is no more,
brief spasm of energy in our life.
Time is like that, unbending, unyielding,
much like the way
I often
describe
you.

Ghazal With a Beat

This enchanting song kept me swayed today in a cool spell of samba
I simply couldn't think of anything but man what a swell samba

What I know about Brazil you could fit into a thimble José
Carioca some Disney-fied symbol an ersatz carmel samba

My cousin lives in Rio and New York but he doesn't know who I
am not like blood but that's another story a life is hell samba

None of this matters for the beat is moving on, completely outer
space whistles swoosh and pounding drums and it becomes a stellar samba

I'm motorvating in the sky comets winging by hips alive ai
ai I feel it in the muscle the marrow must be a cell samba.
