Out, Back, Out


Labrador in summer, as autumnal as boots,
in shade brighter than darker voyages.
Shovels work puppets, making like it's creation of curves

with gleaming snow-plows pulling air.
The outside is inside; the inside is outside.
The air, pulling, plows snow, gleaming with curves of

creation. It's like making puppets work shovels.
Voyages darker than brighter shade,
in boots as autumnal as summer in Labrador.

Best Radical Disaster


Good for him, pulling cyber security products
to the shock and ire of his own legislative party.
There were "too many unanswered questions".

A three-month extension of the debt ceiling
burned the people amid concerns that
the familiar source may be vulnerable.

We are living through a historic shift
a spokeswoman confirmed. The president
is an untrustworthy and unpredictable ally.

On More Than One Plane


Angered by her refusal to come down harder
I feel her absence often. Welcoming
a few reflections from the past allows her to

directly engage with memory, loss, and
the notion that one’s understanding of the past,
can alter over time, loosen her grip on

an unwavering version of the past
and finally comprehend the present.
This never made much sense to me

There is danger when snakes team up in managing your money,

Nobody could have predicted that
We can still forget why we fell in love.

Are we to believe that monkeys rafted to a new continent
to repair cars? Who would cross the ocean
just to tunnel under the Panama Canal?

But it's in the meaning of "Volkswagen,"
said the modern primate unintentionally. Related point:
We believe we have discovered marijuana or Tijuana,

it's unclear which. It may not matter.
But the vegetation is at least $22 million years old,

Tumbleweed in Vegas


The hairy weeds cascaded downtown in unprecedented swarms,
where they were spotted shopping, drinking,
and singing karaoke.

One aristocratic tangle haunts the Honeymoon Hotel.
Another drove a Maserati right into the local supermarket
(to get a carton of dry milk, obviously).

Looking like scarecrows at the beach,
they have taken over the technology and homes of humans.
But relax; the Lucky Dollar has experience with profligacy.

Injured (Like California)


Los Angeles was a chance, a retreat.
The army of cars sounded like firecrackers,

The rain somehow escaped.
The hideout was flight: the highway
a drug, a prison.

California was injured– a people debris.
The mountain was a wounded relief–
the face of thunderstorms.
