Perpetual 

Then the

          rocklite


      ignites
the icy sound of
somewhere else


It’s no wonder these things
these leatherhands wrinkled nitrate
when they ring like drums copperopolis


                You’re perpetual
                               a dying breed
                                             they got you
                                on some lists


           Take a drink
from the glass
                            of the exit wound
                   in your back
                          pocket
             carbine           offering


                                                                    We know
                                                                     what you
                                                                    have done

Smell the incense burning spliced from the spiral 


                     When the brass watering can 
            the passiflora incarnata
earthship turbinesoul

                     When the rain
            doesn’t stop for weeks


When they show up
with the tank
in the back
of the truck


                     When the moon
infinifolds


And them chickadee
      laser beams

them white whistlin dreams

    We had almost this exact conversation today here, listening to the generator eating money. Still, quite true. And? we STILL don’t have chainsaw back. Your poetry really helps, in any case!

      “Other people are joyous, like on the feast of the ox, like on the way up to the terrace in the spring. I alone am inert, giving no sign, like a newborn baby who has not learned to smile.” — Lao Tzu
