Tina's Braces And Mom's Retainer

Beautiful teeth
those two
she women--


soft pillows.

They of the
Tell me!  Please tell!

What was it you wanted to say?
To me.  To me.  The secret ingredient.
Of long ago Oil of Olay diligence
excluding ordinary anguish.

This Day Threw Me

It threw me to you
magic ache.

Whorl not just a word.

Desire being pants fitting just so
and wearing them
always.  Let H. D. deal
with all those fruits

all those flowers.

Rosy Dawn Of The Corporation

Grazing land.
After serving terms--
English Angels.  Irish Devils.
Taken from indigenous farmers.

Lazy commoners!
Suppression of women--
1550-1650.  Thanks.  Giving.

Split Moon With Onion Idea

One was wild under the pear tree
The other was, well, the other

It was impossible to decide
If it helps any--

One was a clown
And the other clownish

All this went into daylight
Part of the mix

We could be deciding this forever
Look up, the moon dividing itself

Splitting again, which part is better?
Before or after

Almost crazy to write about a painting
but there it is with its three parts

Farm To Fable Direct

Halfway across an ocean.  Still
was not far enough away.
Then, direct statements:  too much
not enough.  Her thinking.
What does she envision?
Grains, roots, hard cheeses.
Parsley, kale, mint
from the garden.  Should she
continue the nightmare.  Trying.
Dr. Oz would like the effort.
Dr. Phil weighing in a solid no.

Yes, they have dissolved
been patched up again
then seem as something else
entirely.  What  I count on.
But who can live inside a collage?
Trees, rivers, hawks and eagles
along the freeway corridor.
I sought Salem and found
a velvet pin cushion
felt more comfortable
thinking of their wings.

Untangling La Tengo

When all is said
and done
there are no words
sad enough
plain enough
for meaning so

listen.  Hear
you just

the W.O.W. Hall's
Scorpio quiet.
