throwback pairs of defining lights, smirking
Strolling Pie Fields
If you ordered a dream, I know how you’d take it.
Strolling pie fields, punctuated by ponds of boiling ramen.
Well well well what do we have here?
To phrase a feeling, the greatest gift is…
To Be in your Thoughts
Don’t know how I got here, but I’m happy to stay,
make myself comfortable, dance around and play.
Was it something I said that popped me in your head?
Nice of you to have me, you really didn’t have…
If sunshine be butter then
take me for bread.
Life’s sweetest sentiments
fall unsuspecting as ripe…
Night Needn’t Be
Every time I see you I leave with more to say,
I’m beginning to feel it could take a lifetime
to explain. I knew before you told me there was
something different about you…

Notes to Generation Fortunate Son
Fuzzy flags carried off planes
no one needs to ask about.
Spare my eyes the sight
society says to itself….
Her Way Never Lost
Her body a sound garden, storm swept sea
a passenger afloat, humming to her vibration…
She’ll Be Right
These mistakes go on to make themselves,
worthwhile experience registers of confirmation.
Hear a buzzing hive, your best has yet beecomb.
Nest away elixirs spices jewels and devices…
The Prophet Jeremiah
The prophet Jeremiah blends in a crowd, mustard brushes his sleeve,
out on divine parole, the stall line at Coachella proved larger than his bladder.

More than a moment,
singing circles of soul sayers

Running with Turtles
Those feeling of ever after
a torrent of butterfly kisses.
Lazy grins bask in new moon
shadows, conceiving a heaven…
buffer for an
Forced Funnel Cake
Winds will be winds passing pressure, proprietary imbalance
self organized energy spools dotting gust of telegramming gods.
What is that noise? Blinds scratching glass?
Is it the dying whimpers of a man whose mouth was replaced by a harmonica?
Roommates Spring 2014
Out of a driftless area the
lanky midwester calls Dubuque home
what is he doing here?
Standing in the sun for no particular reason…
When We Were Inseparable
When we were inseparable
things lost their reason.
mouths moved but nothing spoke
louder than those color pencil
sketches on my high school schedule…
Rising from red shale
golf ball-esque structures the
size of houses, scattered among
a remote volcanic remnant in absolute Pacific isolation…
Checks and Balances

Saturday Shrimpy gets it, “nice TA nice,”
an easy Lords of Dogtown refrain
warms my heart in playful Pitas waves.
Rex soul arches his carver all the way to the boys,
There are no words to describe this mystery in mind,
How it all became? What we are destined to?
So sit down and I’ll tell you how it all came true.
