What I did on my Summer Vacation

High Wind Warning Memory in the Parking Lot

You know-
After all is said and done now
I think that in retrospective

You weren’t all that pretty
Or not really all that smart
And sometimes now
I really do think
I found you in an abandoned shopping cart.
*

The Next Time

So tell you what
The next time they
Tell you to jump?
You can just shake
Your head and nod
S’OK
I already know when
And how high.

*

Tell Me I’m Wrong Here

Nobody wants to hear it-

Funny.

They all ask.

*

Kafka Would like this…

Doctor Phil and more than a few others
Were rather disappointed
When I never did wake up a beetle
Underneath my own bed.

*

Where’s my Judge Judy?

I dreamed last night I was
In the audience and you were up
In the defendant podium

And I couldn’t see the plaintiff
Anymore.
*

What Kind of guy was He? (4.0)

On a Summer evening
If his feelings got hurt
Because his wind chimes
Weren’t making enough noise?

He would go outside
And smack them around.

*

Fuchsia Facialized

My birthmarks
Are my boners
Just a daily money shot
Waiting to happen

I walk around on your planet
In color
And fully
Erect.
*

It Rains Diamonds on Jupiter

Just for how many years did you dream of this?
Your name somewhere
Your name nowhere
Still expected to show up
With something to say.

Dang me
Dang me
They ought to take a rope
And hang me.

Was that Roger Miller
Or Henry?

And when you take the stage
At the microphone
Around the corner
Will anybody be able
To tell the difference?

So maybe just to be safe?
Go with the Crimson and Clover
Over and over.

Just so much Space

You can move only so far
I’m told in a very small space.
Most human skulls are about
Just under 2 feet by a ft and a half
Yet they contain everything single
Perception one can fathom
In a lifetime about the universe.

So that world between your ears
Can be as wide or narrow as
You make it.

Shrink or expand
Exclude or include.

But I would advise you
To take care with the dimensions
You will ultimately design in there.

Because that is all
You are going to take with you.

His Yellow Tonka Truck

(Attributed to Matt H)

Outside of the bar that evening
After discussing guns and booze
He said….
And I just didn’t have the heart to tell him
Playing so contently in his sand box
With his yellow Tonka truck
That someday he was going to
Have to deal with women.
*

Remembering Herman

Herman Munster was an artist.
He loved the strange sounds of words
And how meaning could jump the tracks
From children’s books to surrealistic art.
So the TV monster based upon Shelly’s nightmare
Found notoriety and fame as being the
GD nicest fiend on the block
Who like to phrase his delivery
In the cadence of his mom.

*

Fighting back with Art

Wishes always it seems
Have to take a back seat in some cab
While nightmares ride first class
Like a holiday heart attack
That happens in front of the kids
On the Thru-way
Headed out to see the fireworks
And the numbness will continue
Till the awareness shows up.
*

Duck Dvorak Duck !

July early evening
After a stunning warm
Summer day with a brilliant blue
Sky without a memory of a cloud
In the world.

In reflection while the radio plays
Dvorak thinking over all the swings
And misses that fate has taken at you
Over the years.

Best take care before you
Grin and smirk…
Missed me….

Because
You can trust me on this one.
Something
Somewhere
Is always just now
Winding up
And headed straight at you.

So it perhaps might be
A bit premature to request
Fate at the piano to play
Ellington’s
I’m just a lucky so and so.

Yank on the August Angst

*

Images to consider while listening to
Blessing in Disguise by Sonny Rollins

*
And she spread em
like Vaseline on a
lawn mower muffler
*

*
Turns out she was a gift card
To the Dumps
*

*
Her top was in the process
Of coming off over her head
As she pushed him away
And then pulled him back
Till their eyes were but inches apart
And said

Ok I’ll do you
But you had better make it nice.

And he did.
O yes he did
*

*
Thank god that dirty fly swatter
Of your heart
Finally missed me.
*

*
Working hard outside
In the burning Summer
Afternoon sun is
Very much like a good long vigorous fuck

Afterwards you ache all over with satisfaction
And the post-coitus cold beer chills it to the bone.

Wearing Yellow Jackets

*

*

Those yellow jackets in his memory had managed to build one hell of a nest.
Aggressive and persistently stubborn
They just will not leave now.

And as the Summer deepened
He had to make a choice everyday
To live with it
or
get rid of them.

He tried everything.
No Pest Strips
Dirt
Cypermthrin
Beer after beer
Cinder blocks.

Nothing worked
They just kept building this
Plush deep hive in his head.

Finally the day came
When he knew he had to do something.

Yes.
He was going to be stung.
Multiple times
And it was going to hurt like hell.

But this arrangement was just simply unsustainable.

So he took out his pen
And started poking and stirring nest
With the point till the
Ink flowed like blood and poison.

Sure now his head was filled with dead insects
But man……how quiet it was now.

Got Abstract?

Better get abstract
start to see this feckless world
eviscerated …. as is…..
strictly in phallic images that
stand erect in the face of
human nature being ejaculated
to cum like acyclic paint left
under a heat lamp
of stubborn ignorance.

Better get abstract
Yeats knew it
as WW 1
the war to end all wars
was merely a mechanical
dress rehearsal to Beckett’s
End Game 30 seconds
over August Hiroshima

Enola Gay
was somebody’s Mom
after all.

Better get abstract
for the days
looming ahead.

Cain will
slew Able
again as
the cradle of civilization
blows away
in nuclear
ash
and our Rubber Eden
the new Jerusalem
of comfort and ease
mendacity and greed
genuflects out of need.

Better get Abstract

You walking
You talking
Al Camus
Canvas
You.
Gone Pollock
splattered.
