a quiet

for lizzy

some gentle purr and nuzzles from fur
orange and white and catered to by

an empty bottle cap and sweet sighs of affection.

replaced by the sentiment of cool metal.

yellow tape

easy going coupon processor
the way a boy can be just so

a desperate measure of attraction
through unsubtle manners

he is sing song in present tense
under the bath of nervous, sick and haunted

by her, who thrusts her need
across the counter top in waves and bubbles

sick to the scent where he was

hoola hoop score


just unlocked 10min duration time. not sure i'm up for that just yet.

an ode to two 17 year cicadas

you flew into my car

i thought you were a bird

cicada a, chip chirping away
in the back seat of my malibu

cicada b, catching the breeze
you strode up my arm, ambitious

i took you both to starbucks, even though
you don't like coffee

the swan at 45

today, i helped a swan find water from the road.

as i was driving home from the grocery store, just slowing down to turn into my road, there was a swan. it was waddling down the middle of the road as if it too were a car.

lots of people were swerving and honking, all avoiding hitting the swan.

i unloaded a few goods that need refrigerating then called animal control. they sent someone down and three of us coerced the savvy bird towards the lake across the street.

if you're ever trying to get a swan to move, approach it with a couple of trash can lids to make yourself look a lot bigger. that swan will move.
