Cosmic FrolicsIve swam through the sky up past the sun
Gathering warm stars to nibble upon
And stuck them all throughout my hair
As merrily I dipped along.
Sweet drops Ive slurped from the Milky Way
That old cow had jumped over the moon;
Shed dined on sweetest fodder this day
Soared so high youd swoon.
Nestled in celestial woodlands of heaven
A Mama Bear and her baby abide;
Six bright stars make Mama bold
And Sagittarius guards nearby.
I took a long bath in a meteor shower
With Hale-Bopp Comet brand soap.
Most energizing, a miracle truly;
I think I should call the Pope!
Ive got a notion bout black holes

i am arturo bandini1. (ask the dust, prequel)
a wolf finds a half-dead deer by following ravens,
he steals, breaking open the ribcage,
the animal stops struggling.
cawing is heard throughout the forest.
2. (ask the dust)
alone, i have been walking for days
and still have not found anything.
the desert is wide, my water
is now gone.
i will die tomorrow.
i remember the days you wrote
while i jumped in the ocean water.
i could say those were the best days
of my life, before the dead skin
and the drugs and the mental institutions.
before he sent me out into the cold,
hope still bright in my eyes from dusk
until the unforgiving white dawn.

The damaged flesh
With precision stitches
Carefully wrap in bandages
A fractured mind
Finding a person from
Where they retreated deep inside
The broken heart
Piecing back together
The trust that was betrayed and the
Wounds in the soul
Can take eternity
Even when those of the flesh are

HagiographyI said: tomorrow lets meet
at this corner, I can buy
you a drink and well talk.
About what? you said, looking
beyond me, your eyes on the lights
of the Port Authority building and the signs
that kept trying to tell us
Eighth Avenue. All the time I kept thinking
those shrimp were so good, that we ate
at that bar in the theatre district. This still is
the theatre district, again but that was
the first flush of twenty-one, swaying
arms linked through the streets and punch-drunk
on a lack
of limits, though I poured my drink
into the ficus pot. Ive never liked alcohol
but the shri

when time stuck at eleven ten.every day, monday to sunday, from a quarter note to midnight, till half passed out-on-your-lawn, I have the same routine of staring at numbers and wishing they could stay that way forever. kind of like how I picture us, slowdancing to the ticktock rhythm of crooked clocks as they autograph staccato time signatures on unsuspecting criminals. beatbeatbeating like a cadavers heart. like the heart you conceal under your wristwatch because shirtsleeves are tacky and an alarm on your arm would stop intruders from asking you the time.
you think if you mute the tick-tock-tick-tock with your remotely remote cont

Soaring Ashes -Prologue-Its done - Ive reached that state of mind. Im ready.
I draw the blade across my arm and look out of the barred window as the blood drips to the floor. I sigh and feel my hot breath fill the murky damp cell in which I sit. I know it will seem so childish tomorrow. For now its the most beautiful thing in this dingy prison. I tilt my arm and watch the blood trickle gently down to my elbow. It looks so rewarding, nearly as sad as the flames from a bonfire, burning everything in sight without a pause for thought.
I think Im like that, like a fire. Its who I am. I need a flame around, to run my fingers through,
