I lied about the calm
there was no pastoral mum sweeping the open.
boycott me from the page - lift the ink
and rewrite something less damaging  
unmix the terror
and snapping dog chains
and ego
and "do you really mean it?"
because in truth we never evacuated
or rebuilt
we looted raw sewage
bird watched for missiles
and fuck if it wasn't the most unloved day the clouds let be seen.

I will do everything I can for you,
like comb down the games played in your hair while we slept.
I will transcribe the dreams you didn't know you had. Jessica,
I was with you while you were riding a satellite, biking thru the shuffled stars.  
Fluids are piped into you.
Blood hardens around the needles.
Your skin is colorless, I lie next to you and
pretend that we are in an igloo on a sunny day. I tilt you to one side and
wash your sores.  Shoulder wilts over shoulder.
The line of croquet balls in your spine crack and crow. Rib on poplin rib.
The most human thing I can do is look at you.
I miss you and believe that the moment you wake,
the emotions your brain won't let you feel will rush to you.
You'll have a pouch which holds a knowledge that you cannot verbalize.
You'll believe that when I fall asleep I will understand
but until then, you will do everything you can for me.

Tyler is a 3 Wheeler.
no flavor lovers
mowed the red carpet &
swung from a dream. now.
i'd rather
cook shows & candles,
but most sundays
i batter the treadmill. now.
no lover favors
greased wheels.
the wild artichoke,
cut the laundry of yule and clay.
harass the rapids,
the reign of candle
wicks in ohmaha. #artificial dinner

Lime Tank
half delicious
pacified lions
supplement apt a,
empty the window &
cause your own skin
& sphere.
it was here,
w/ the roses on either side,
that you allowed for a lawn &
atoned for agitation.
& re your lowtops,
earth is probably dreading their footprints.
he is socks.
he is satin robe &
blond daylight. #building spirit

In a lot of the "more artistic" Barnes & Noble super stores they sell a literary journal titled Monkey Bicycle. It has featured the work of great writers like Molley Gaudry and Jason Jordan and in the next edition, it will also feature me! Pick it up.

On November 6th I will be reading in Manasquan NJ. If you missed the readings at The Random Tea Room, Brickbat Books ect. this will be a great/local opportunity for you to join in on the fun. Free books by Brandon Scott Gorell! (of Melville House) Free Magazines! (Avalanche Tinder, and Lo-Fidelity) and our famous Grab bag!
