Experiments of Syracuse

Lava being poured on ice and shrinking.  Another avenue to go toward alive unharmed or unhurt usually at night when nobody's looking. Did not want to be melted, fried.  An animal being played with, tricked. Painful to watch the video by the Syracuse scientists.  The icy platform became watery.  It became wet.  Looked for an escape and shaped itself, protecting what it was and what it wasn't, masking any sort of understanding.

Planet Lava

Earth inside
outer reaches
strangely hot
planet material
unlike anything
the surface

Tell me
rows and rows
eighty years old

Lavender Commotion

The store didn't carry the lavender scented
laundry soap she wanted and it was most
important to have that soap magnolia will
do but it is not the same as the lavender
mmm oohhh lavender it is so great have
you smell it wonderful lavender

Long Wait Short Moment

Creeping steadily over landscapes
out of the way places
over the used up 
the road loops around
impossible on the other side
they've got it blocked off now
to spectators 
only scientists allowed
with their measuring tools

Something In the Grasses

Burning along folding unfolding
the heat a new birthday balloon
what fades here what is in the tube
sleep wastes time I never had
they released the blackfish out
into open waters finally ending
I did not mean for a rescue
thought only of the glinting
that this all means something
instead of papers folded away

Molten Rock

Different path down to the sea
could take deflation inflation
fingers reaching she has decided
wait for evacuation orders possible
to conclude using emotions using reason
then you will know instead of waiting

That color of red
had never been seen before
her dress fluttering
drenching rain no wind
how could that be
from here to that over there
you could see his arms
chicken skin she wore a white
wrapping around her hair
where the two roads meet
gravel over where the temple
old bones dozed covered up
mad about that checking it out

Double whammy
slim buy-in
foot in the door
slammed in face yet
this has shaken you up
all the way big time
to your common core
illusion gotcha logic
loopy written straight

Bewildering Surface Of Things

Beneath laminate brown
electric blue forest green
woven of grasses leaves
peace next day a disguise
for all hope gets buried there
new surfaces tell a story the inside
of a planet ill toxic please apply
pressure to stop the bleeding
bleed out your remembered life
speak of human civil rights speak
the right to be cared for the right
to be healing soothing saved

I Spy Something

Green it is grey in the rain
passing fluttering normal
ocean if this is a dream
why am I dreaming the sun
goes in Scorpio in a few days
you'll be feeling much better
he said I thought my hair

Sails Woven Feathers

Staying put longer than going
decade stretching flat
how is my English he asked
do you write something about the storm
This time different
wind same same rain
cement floor quite familiar
carrying dreams into another room
everything gone from the walls
moved on leaving swept up ants spiders

Shelter From The Storm

Now the rain is starting
lava a north or south decision
windshield film gone fresh
backpedaling motion
this is circus interest
taming small beasts
to sit wait cages warm
dry complete sadness
wishing for Major

Trained by corporate babies
turnover rate extreme
what do I care
fragments fragments
fragments figments

Corporate police report:

suspect seen reading Shakespeare
Great Gatsby and one perp even taught
poetry the whole year tell me people
what were they thinking we have changed!
now College Bored educators for &
career readiness Where did you go over lunch?
Well I stopped in the Public Library saw
read absorbed Loading Mercury With A Pitchfork
how the neighbors stood around to watch
around the pickup buy the elixir snake oil
from the dealer we're not asking but mandating

Data Embrace

Eyes arms mountains
wrap around it head hands
wrap around it if you can't play
you won't win if you don't play
you've got to play to win around it
Just quit just walk away all the way
around the mountain it is 67 miles
shortcut or regularly it is eighteen
a two and some hour drive just to reach
the work site the job site the timeline

Lava Land

We swam with Casanova
he had shaved off his beard
I saw his pale chin vulnerable
moonlight up where
we don't belong
here looking

Oozing down the mountain
blobbing long cracks burnishing
forest flat leaving gold black

A wide pavement behind nothing
starts from scratch

Moon Shell

Bowl balancing disappearing
his enthusiasm for all things
contagious deliriously catching
I caught it held on for dear life
at home paintings of the shore
purple rocks washed symbols
trees haphazard little wind much rain
cat black as a bear eyes cane colored
I'd like to go see the ponds where he
painted waiting for movement

Bohemian Flair

He said the city was a mummy
the whole country really
seen thorough wrapped-up
eyes made downcast focusing
houses their curtains gauzy
closed-up money smell
he was French hated the Nordic
merchants you can say Gothic
ghost town compared to Paris

By The Way

By the way have I thanked you
for picking me up out of that muddy
stretch I got bogged down with the West
sky colors made vibrant sooty
pretending the new boom just up ahead
under the boardwalk in Nome hearing
so many gold nuggets dust and the like
stories would not replace Philippe
how it ends up pockets turned inside out
collecting just the smooth ones
absent context but so beautiful thumbing
them leaving never quite alone lonely

World Older Than Ours

Bernard up to the white world above
the adaptations are of no help with the perils
above because of public outcry the pups
too vulnerable she sleeps meanwhile a debate
rages some announced a waste of resources
ironically Bernard finds a pup buried in the ice
the mother will recognize it as her own what would
happen each is an integral part of the world time
running out in a world older than ours

Black Blue

Not only skulls and shattered bone
the bottom is littered with debris
Falco finds hope in recovering
even more important finds
the tunnel deep the air precious
flushed through a strainer into
Calypso's side even a pocket sundial
gold coin Captain Cousteau also descends
finds himself baffled by the confused wreckage
below one finds evidence of the explosive
Falco suggests Cousteau quickly agrees

Dear Fan

Thanks for watching the show
it will continue without further notice
The whir of hell are many degrees gone
My face my dogs my wolves know it to be useful
baked in the desert made chewy
my friends take care chiming in
