of the i lost to me

of the I

lost to me

everything it concealed

dozes in my mouth

the unknown skeleton

that holds up

the passionate arsonist

as a man

of intelligence

the falling star

of the moment

under endless eyes

echos the explosions

of revelations that dim

in the headlights

of the herded cars

the freeway that isn't free

hides in here with not a word

for itself

just an ache

a cramp in the ribs

lost in the voice of a huge


from a wandering leaf



on the bristling


a thrown kiss

that destroyed the road

it traveled

a crater's creator of vast


that indispensable hollow that

slowly opens the circle

of the collar

the ring

of awareness

into its other

Passing by my head
    deep "wwwuuumm" sounds
On the way to the feeder;
Obstructing the "matrix" hummers.

Peeking around
    the shelves
on the metal
    ferry bumpers
Slightly tufted "bedheaded"
Look exhausted
    but unflagging
in their nests;
Parking on the ferry.

a little song

plowed mist tangled the machine
chromed rose in the inelegant
child's smooth hand
just then blue petals fall on
a blue line
in the making
above the fragile brain's ribs
ruffled freckles
everything in
alphabetical order
trespasses over the
inner self that knows itself
only the lovely way along the abyss
inviting every step and
a red tree house
for the piper
with the answers
the exit
in chains
can't bite
the face unsexed
storm clouds and clouds of smoke
rust old photographs
and old words hiding in the brush
are hushed
looking up a copper fly
on a pine is
locked to a little song
