Understated (11.24.10)

striving just to catch her eye through a social eruption ruling in my vicinity
heads held back guffawing pleasing
always wonder why others are so easily amused
left unlaughed
likely to concentrate on her face and place in the area

I know the environment
now it's my battlefield
once nothing more than hallway
if only on an earlier day I'd built a trap door
waiting for

when she giggles due to their likes
my vision pains me
when she giggles on account of me
it is sweeter than a honeyfall
more pleasant than shaving with whipped cream
sans any consequences
only now

I've tried to look my possible best
probably took longer than her to get ready for this night in this crowd
could there be someone to her like she is to me?
I mean,
another germ to infect and pest
dressed nice
wares or not
a target on his chest seen only through her eyes

God, no

without a word and find the passage
to the night air
still crowd
of women I never want to know
all you heros can have them
I take all the fingers on my left hand
and all the fingers on my right hand
and beckon my hair down
on the sides of my head
in front of my ears
feel the openings of each nostril with my right index knuckle
smile at the girl who is out here smiling at me
then turn and head back into the fray
today is my today

sea (11.15.10)



sex icon
worn traveller

cyclist on Calgary
limping bad

circling an area
beneath troubles of bugles
messes of musty marines
spilling liquid like lilies licking dew
heathens and homeoseptic jives

killing kling kling kling

diving into
lockers of the deep
holding notes of drama-lusting fish that knew no better

pass the parliament
pound the pulpit with perverse power

taken and shaken
pings of man
hurry Hell
chains of clawing
mauling tolerance
of all her lost beauties

misting paladins
swinging swipes of swift seductions
poising pears
pallet pallet pallet
arches yanking
tearing shares of stock
to follow in feeble findings
fortifying figurines
follicles full of ambiguity

pills and plastics
sinking into a dark place
where the pain in jaws
shrieks with masochistic lullabies
of numbing melodies

peace be unto you

H (11.9.10)

compliments of the house
woke the architect one night
clutching these straws
preventing passage
a wet pillow
dead partner
trapped in his tomb
make room

blueprints of heresy line the black satin
she waits seductively atop the shelves

a poison in his plastic cup
remarked and retried
one failed attempt pissed the hirer
the ling left
no pay, but not willing to confide
nor override
escape: a welcome pass

throwing the blanket over his head
air stifled, but he didn't care
he just wanted to sleep

Parniged (11.4.10)

so this elderly man
bless him, did what he can
took another step
pulled on her legs
another football field or so to the pit
he held in his air, heaved again

and those drag trails were five miles in coming
it was a miracle they hadn't found him
he moved with concern
desire in his exertions
for a senior citizen, sure mighty in time

she was pretty once
or so he kept sayin
I wouldn't second-guess
his entity
straining, sweated dry
shaking in strength
but he kept on draggin that dame's bod

when the headlights appeared
turning and coming
he only paused for a moment before his largest effort yet
covered ground like a cat
with all his weight and hers
bringing them both the edge of his earlier labor

with a twist of his back
a pop that smacked back
in retaliation of how its operator ran things this late in the game
her corpse hit the bed
rocking the head
limbs collapsing unnatural way

before I could know his next phase in the scheme
the car had come and shone their deer
one of 'em inside
took out of the ride
shooting the old animal down

and he fell
right into her arms
and both were safe from further harm
home dead
