april

April's an evil bitch in heat

You can do this

So much space now

April's showers mock the salty puddles under your face

Too much pain to turn the pillow over


They go into heat in April

Sowing wild oats, too selfish to think of how they are hurting their best friends

She is cursed, this April month like she's always been

Some of you already know


You get to finally find out who your friends were not

Some of your friends survive another blessed April

Life because she needs to feed on the death

Before she can deliver her wrath


Got all this space made for more than just you

Got nothing holding you back or up

Grab your device, go to work, sleep and repeat

Until April returns again, gear up with friends to spare


It isn't you.  It's not even them

But you are right, it is like you are being tortured

Left with so much strength and space and truer, fewer friends

Each April God again
meadows is larking
while soft waves are patiently
hard rocks marking

GINGKO

They saw they thought
in April woods
the blooming light
of a spring dogwood
but it was
last year's translucent
gold leaves
glowing on
a gingko tree.

DIET OF WORMS


One heard of The Diet of Worms
and thought of robins
swallowing whole
beings who squirm
Others
of the papal attempt
to arrest Martin Luther
on which Pope Leo X stood firm.

 

Footnote:

The Lutheran Church has asked

forgiveness for Luther’s

virulent Judaophobic writing. That

was not the reason for the attempt

to arrest him.

RIB CAGE IN HOSPITAL


a vision of a woman

in the hospital…

a live bird trying

to escape her rib

cage…

was it the soul

trying to leave the body…

or the sickness caused

by eating a chicken?

Keeper (since winter will not go away)

You know it's a good read when you pull it from bed,
and take it to the pisser,
read it while standing.

Like a fun-girl, she stands with,
watching.
I hold her in my left hand,
she's parted,
my head tilted,
skimming her lines.

 

Two t-shirts on, pulled above my navel.
Mid March with 2 feet of snow on the ground,
damn winter,
it will not go away.
My underwear pulled and pinned beneath my balls,
I read,
trickle a little,
then some more.
Bring her back to bed,
and like the perfect being she is,
lying face down,
spread open to satisfy me.
