EVERYONE’S ACQUIRING A TASTE

if i taste crystal skies would i feel cold ice
and like your smile and cold blue eyes
or even brown or black — an even space so

everyone is lying in bed happily
i’m so alien — amazing that everyone is

acquiring joy and love and suddenly
i know i smell :: everyone lying in my head so

happily i say amazing just to taste
cross-species and intelligence
like the One every living thing knows –:– made

us this way. So suddenly, i remember i am
so sucked into a program of love and i am quietly

swollen-ly the chase of His program full
of aliens and it’s amazing how everyone is

requiring a taste of a thing called “amazing”
and everyone is tasting blood
–so amazing, and i love you my simple ALIEN.

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
