REARVIEW MIRROR

Oh humanity sang to me
a dream of vanilla beans
a toxic stream of caffeine
surrealism caught a train
and zebras smiled alone
undulating umbrellas
spinning backwards
Mori Tower swayed
earthquakes moved
UFOs over LA too
and my politician
his name GOD died
and in that place
a sucking sound
filled by Patriots
who cocked their guns
and Buffalos grinned
babies cooed a boo
I’m crying so hard
Ice cream melting
but my car runs
and I’m moving
the landscape too
we crawl across
beautiful lands
but now its cool
not like commercial
shit floats now
and death sinks
good thing yeah
a rearview mirror
is Godsend too

BOOZE AND BRUTE

FOUGHT in the trenches of France
the screams belied the deeds
Instead of ‘for country!’
more said for love of mother

The trench reeked of gas
but the tents smelled of smoke
if you had’em you smoked’em
boots rotted and socks to hell

The voyage to paradise made
— Lady Liberty with her staff
as stiff as any military man
the diesel smoke choked many

Prohibition ran into my roads
From Chicago to musty Atlanta
bullets, broads, booze and brute
there I met my fate in rain-lead

Say nothing to the solider
speak low my ghost-friend
you were there too – I know
even though you don’t remember
