VOLCANO WATCH . . . My unrelenting act of defiance, writing verse, and the first poem of the new year

VOLCANO WATCH

Punch tools, cutups
Antlered animals
Arm bones astonish.
Antipodes hook.

Winged jewels
Bluegrass blades
Amaranthine throats.
Nothing’s lost on me.

I am lost
In a volcano
Man, billows of black
Tidings. Lured to the horizon

Through a corn maze
Past turbulence of mind
Nothing but pink
Stars to separate us.

WILD WEST/COAST… Last poem of 2013

WILD WEST/COAST

1

No lotus eaters we

Swelter pepper

Swig beer and bitch.

Cook up the rent.

1

Barbecue/Cauldron.

Steak/Prize.

Gavel/Tenderizer.

We grow enormous

1

Righteous, meting

Justice, camping out.

Point. Peninsula

Less mitigation

1

Than an island, its

Star gardens, clarity

Of sea life, surrounding

Sound of silent crime.

DETECTIVE WORK . . . sloppy or otherwise

Pedro Reyes

DETECTIVE WORK

Only God knows.
Fuck God.
I disarmed God
Eons ago.

Horny, maundering
X-ray vision
All the better to ogle
Your boobs
Though it’s motive I see

Glaring through hotbeds
Of rose mallow
Blaring past foghorns
Of hickory smoke.

Theories sound
As any other scientist’s
I uncover proof
You can’t bear
To look at

Bright, beckoning
Ultramarine.
Nature vs nurture?
Meh. Murderous intent

Seeped into human cells
Eons ago.
Kill To Live.
It’s not just a prison tatt.

EVERY HAND JOB

EVERY HAND JOB

Every hand job
Ever given
Every hand job
Ever received
Belongs to me.

Each furtive grope
Stolen kiss, mine.
You fuck
I come.

The time you delivered pizza
To a lonely silk robe clad blonde
The one who took your virginity
I was there.
That was me.

I’ve been inside
Every bachelor apartment
In the world
Since bachelors began.

Your escapades, my escapades.
Your sex, my sex.
I lick, suck, bang
For you
Whenever you can’t make it

For no reason
For every reason.

BACK DOOR . . . Look who snuck in

1

BACK DOOR

Will summer resist fall?
Will I resist
The drama teacher?
His brutish caress
Sugarless candy.

Perhaps I will iodize
Clandestinely
Get violet
Unicellular.

Will returned
I will actuate.
‘Tis the season
To move

On
Pack books
Leave
Back door wide open.

ESCAPE ARTIST

Ah, freedom.

ESCAPE ARTIST

impaled
invisible fence
barbed wire yearning
scarlet winces
time a mere fever
wrath my ally,
my will, armour.

MANHUNT…It appears one has finally surfaced, offering himself up

1

Roan Capote

MANHUNT

1

Colonel defiantly bird limes,

Favours the icebox

Clothesline, sideburns.

1

Nobbles me at every party.

Blunderbuss, star philosopher

Flip flops across the sand

1

To opine. Flap, flirt.

Surf my turbulence.

Three armholes required

1

Overweening egghead

Lowers to my level

To parse. Probe, fix

1

My diabolical lump.

Easy to spot men. Easy

to track. Easy to lose.

INSOMNIAC . . . Courting the muse, I mean moth

INSOMNIAC

1

She sips a black tar fizz

Remembers batik

Macrame

Totems, beaver plinth

Sturdy,

1

Useful as a shorthorn bull.

Antibody

Prefers to reside in her head

To wonder

Who will thwart meteorites

1

Save the future. Mothra

Rain pelts the window

Softly dying

To reach lamplight

Deliver hope.

HOW TO DODGE LIMBO

Not for Catholics only.

HOW TO DODGE LIMBO

She is a fossil, suspended
In amber. On display.
Before Shot,
Example of what not to do
When you know not what to do.

Limp hill-headed escapist
Maiden in name only
Took his offer
Got his goatee but not intent
To trample. Renege.

Do not go there in your mind.
Lurking invites infestation.
Do not wait for the next move.
Do not descend into minutiae.
Do not kill time.

There is no glory in the coffin.
Do not hang on the line.
Do not wait for the perfect fit.
Do not wait.
Do not do nothing.

DISTRACTIONS . . . Verse written despite many . . .

1

DISTRACTIONS

Dance around my keyboard.
Drive to your cottage.
Rash on my pup’s belly.

Mud on your mattress.
Latest turgid update.
Condom count.

Assemble blow.
Save your ex-girlfriend.
An ultimatum or else.

Sore peepee.
Fake boobs.
Flaming turd, doorstep.

Your problems are still prettier.
