No Subs Available

Too many have already been taken
so lots of teachers out gone home
with what's going around and all
even that teacher of the year's got it
you'll need to get one secured if you
plan on being out better grab one
while you can because this is a mean
thing what everybody got passing it
around even the kids have it so that's
how it is prepare for it hope it passes
quickly since everything is backwards
today Period 9 can watch Lost Boys
of Sudan it has sub titles so that's good
or maybe the Biography of Poe since it
is so short I think Speak is too advanced
plus they all expect Twilight right away
when they see her until they get it
that it isn't the same story no not at all

To Wild(ly) Dreaming

born to
with transit
Sun through Pisces
touching up natal Sun
annual Sun consciousness cycle
finds a new beginning
intution willpower
just a few weeks away

Matter its velocity
does matter
In this sour world
your secret
how you've handled
straw into gold
ebony trees
moon lace

Now your body
tries to catch up
mind memory
absolutely everything
absurd blue love's watery
sublime green

Teach Me How

The clock is blank
there is no time
just gravity pulling
hands down toward Earth
remembering the burdens
they are so smooth
heat up in the sun
rain sizzling
drops bounce

All signs flat symbols
going nowhere now
or so it seems the station empty
thoughts lost to passing

marks these black beats over white
Warm Pond at its best half moon slice
clear underneath our legs visible
kicking through it how lucky

Old Man Mountain

They carried up
someone's heavy
to the base
in a flat

Colorado mystery
climbing up
shallow pools
old rain


years later

About the grinding--
see the elk
their ancient paths
now quite

From Now On

Their world is blue
from now on
she will live
in that world
with the others
straining to hear
what's happening today
every day right there
with them

The others and their things
will never matter so much
as this as them they sat
on the couch somewhat
depressed but were together
can you imagine and then

It was a good trip but she misses
them the ones still there
her dream was she ate she was sick
never the same always the same
except how could they leave
over and over and over

Lost And Found

So art is for when
the world breaks deadly
even more mirrors glass
looking for the lost and found
beat in everything listening
to bones how they washed up
on a dim beach picked clean
sinking in ankle deep stumbling

Rules To Die By

Imagery mixed with allusions
to weather to unforgotten misdeeds
onomatopoetic steps across frozen lands
lakes and caves to treasure of lucky finds
quick as a furry animal stepping into its own
foreshadow to avoid personifying a tree
that would be me repetition hyper repetition
slipping slick climbing static air flat clouds
used to address the antagonist in a positive
flashback to climax strict lake resolutions
