more space guesswork

Andromeda did not mind about the light years gone missing. Saturn or some body in space was happy to harbor them but they sure took their time arriving. Watch out you might get fractal off the rings, or maybe that’s what was supposed to happen. I always cut up my years into months and smaller increments. I bake them in a pan and they come out all seasonal. That way kids know when they go bad, not to eat them. Andromeda takes them back when we send them, and turns them into meteor showers, the galaxy to exfoliate. Deep space is the safest place around, minimal pollution, air and sound. I wanna go there when my world fails me. I cannot stand the anxiety. Earth looks good from the outside, but just try burning through the atmosphere; you will soon discover it wasn’t worth it. Sorry to let you down and all.

daydream #k

i dreamed of a jump
off a balcony
before
i got a key
to a gate
to a pool

now i can
get wet
the way they want me
to get wet
civilized
like

then if i make it
up quickly and
indoors
i can lie
down
on the couch
by the window

watch the waters turn
my ceiling into a light
show
and daydream
some more
through vertical
blinds

notarize the thighs (no.7)

Oversaturated with char-broil
ranch sauce and carpet sales
pitches

how would we survive
if we rented out
our heads

come knocking
first of the month

they look at us incredulous
shaking out a hook
the jingle

pay up motherfucker
you live on our land

what
did you think
this was
free

the legend of captive 8

captive 8
did not hesitate
they made it out
somehow
the words
on dying
breath persist
i am free
now
captive 9
may never know
the old great feel
of earth
   and pine
         and snow
of trees and moon
long shadows
glow
a foot of snow
held their imprint
form
so long
home they went
beloved captive 8
due north
for what
a life was
worth
captive 9
had heard
the shot
disintegrate
all hope
as well
that night
behind the downy
swell
they cried the memory
clean
of one
who shared
the singular dream
locking doors
and prison whores
‘neath the cold
steel
toe
all they ever
knew was all
they ever
know
