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

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

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

1

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.

MONSTER LOST . . . It seems there is no logic to these things.

MONSTER LOST

1

Godzilla years
Vagabond phase
Rampage days
Punch & Judy Show
Nights. Wild west
Pastiche. Bang
Locals. Streamline fate.

No coastline suits
No dwelling
Can contain him.
Latent crush
She did not choose.
He fell into her
Living room

Woozy from flight
Parsimonious talker
Familiar, fragile, giant
Pocked with luck.
Collisions. Pain.
She did choose to look.
To see. To harbour.

SEEKER . . . “Seeking what is true is not seeking what is desirable.” ― Albert Camus

1

SEEKER

She found him
Verbose, wondered
Why he was gargling,
Carving salt with his uvula.

Too much tongue?
She was the type
To fondle q tips
Groom his climax.

Swish. Swallow. Marvel.
The questioning type
Blessed or cursed
With a savant prone womb.

She found slums
More frightening than marsh,
Collarless dogs
And red grapes

Dozing, frozen in the sun.
Then she found me
Long after she’d quit
Seeking answers. Clarity. Peace.

MIRAGE . . . Verse alluding more to the optical phenomenon than the Vegas hotel

1

When I write and think I feel like EveryWo-Man, that I am nothing more than bits of all and other people talking to myself. Them. Us. And today please bear in mind that which we desire can kill us before we reach the oasis.



MIRAGE

1

Strive to wake slowly

To answers, to morning

When I hear best

When I am best heard.

1

So, what’s my weather?

Clammy Kurt Cobain,

Decapitation dreams

Verdant commotion

Microchip dread.

1

Don’t shy away she said

Pretend you can’t see

What you see.

Here comes your tall order

1

Last Coke in the desert,

What you thought out loud

Sacrifice bunted,

Bent light rays for,

Made manifest, integral

Part of the landscape.

1

In dubious collusion

With your dawdling beau

Inspirational quotes

Make you puke,

1

The unsaid, uneasy.

There is no rain.

No water.

No lake.
