me again

spilling spite into the bucket below me,
I tank at the tulip garden on top of a
mack truck, so sleepy and quieted.

slipping onto something more uncomfortable,
I alleviate my tamer ticks by tackling colds,
creating matches, and keeping general stamps

on my collective unconscious. then, tipping
stop-gap moos and reaching round-abouts,
mellow lanky mop-heads come at me.

such is life with zapping, crying tap dancers.
muffing, I lounge inside a chicken coop,
then trundle around seven rotund, kept

sucubi. same search as last year, only
this sirius ain’t want it cooed to see.
leveling reactions on labeled raunchies,

I conclude that it is sordid to leap before
you lap, and kick three sick drunks on
my sack full of secrets. rocking lakes

of socking, yellow catch-me-on-the-can
reruns, licking right of lame quite-sos, and
mightying marks of sealed rainbows, the

cleaned wire gaunts lovely. what a feeling!
to run down roaring gloves on wrong, so
wrong, rearrangements, I settle down to me.

meandering

meandering along a mump-filled landscape,
I stop on the side to ponder infinity.
that doesn’t last long, so I
catch a train to loudville,

leaking lame lordships as I go.
arranging types of tangos in unseemly
tarantula keepsakes, I feign a stop
at Angelo’s, my favorite restaurant

on the coast of the Panhandle.
Trying desperately to tell the truth,
but failing miserably, I sort out
creatures from down below.

Catching a cold from outer space,
I tango with misses and mice,
teaching telling telegraph-making
to first-graders in eleven school districts.

oh, the time I had, keeping up!
yodeling as I went, I walked up
the nearest mountain only to
find myself alone in a deadly forest

full of angelic and christological morbids.
“care for a cup of tea?” they asked me,
but I was the wiser and opted for goat milk.
such is the jouney I had that day.
