It's starting
No not Spring
The slipping
Bring your own
Copper cup
I'll fill it up
Spend my money
Empty the vessel
Trip on a stone
See the sights
Wish I was home

Ten Thousand Flowers in Spring

The bee cannot find the hive
No honey to make
Just a stinger in the behind
Blood moon rising
Fool’s lips try to bind
Fail to trouble
The invincible season
The mindful mind

Right Now

Send money to the lemmings so they stop pulling their chutes
There’s a new book on Burroughs we must buy
Dry as dry as can be cured by cracking beeswax
This color feels good when I paint a splotch
Top of the John Hancock for carrot cake to celebrate
I don’t want to be late but early doesn’t sound good either
Perhaps I should be on time
One moment
at
a
time

Irruption

It’s all because of the letter V
I wonder how we're going to save the world
Taking money out of the Pig
My heart and mind are two children
Venom slows me down
Ravens are lost in Duluth
Cold as an owl irruption
I forgot the age of unforgettable
I save all of your sunsets
She loves to study the Black Death
Mining indigo with Greeks
Bones break like glass

Out of Nowhere

A dusty forgotten book found on how to rescue a relationship
That can’t be rescued and would it have been?
A dead man with a needle in his arm sitting on a toilet
A waste of a perfectly good life, we get one
A terminally ill girl who went to prom with her boyfriend and town
I never went to prom, but I’m alive

Invasion

British Suri is decidedly daft
I said call Rich's cell
Not stock price of Dell
A ketchup bottle thrown
Across the kitchen
Has high impact on naughty
Fodder for the wee gee
And gossip mill
Keep your pills
They make us slow
Pretty little policeman
Sit in the snow
Don't forget to write
About surfing with Kelly
And flying at night

Winter Bones

There is distraction in my mind
To be in a moment
Different than the one I'm in
To fast forward to the life
I desire and deserve
Yes I deserve to be happy!
My soft heart has taken a beating
Pun not intended but serves
I've earned my stripes and badges
I've honored everyone else
Sacrificed skin and bone
And yet the snow falls
