In love with you

I wasn’t

Hair falling across your face

Hands hesitating

Eyes glowing with


I never saw


Thoughts ideas possibilities

Hyper-real dreams

Textures of life

Falling on an open palm

I was in love with


Unknowns I thought

Only I

Could be

As the glove crafted

Threads stitching

Nothing into something

More important

Hyperboles spin until

Goodbyes are

Said better

And hellos are


In a rippling pond

Mistaken for a wishing well

Slippery with pennies

Fingers lapping them up

Into an economy

As elusive as



Your tinkling laugh

Echoing past obstacles

Real or just

In my head


I will champion you

Protect that

Freckled nose


Deflecting pain’s


To merely

A glare


Tomorrow we’ll

Make cookies


Silly songs


Through your

Whistling wiggle



Waiting for fairies


Princess plays

And mermaids

In the tub

Saint Illusion

Shrouded in magnanimity

Morosely recalcitrant

Dutifully I spit you up

Hack hack spew


My inflection carefully inspected

My name is bastard

The b is silent


Yawning in my digress

Shoulders swaying swaggering

Digesting superlatives

Plague upon plague


Locusts buzzing in the midst

The night and my hair

Lit up with strung lanterns


So long so long my buttercup

My faint tainted fae

My own arm tearing at the vein



Wiping back sweat

Look at me

See how I suffer


My philanthropic guilt

My limpid vanity

My dictators suffering

Is it in vain


Ethereal velvety floating

My halo my wings amidst the squalor

My feet never touch the ground


Send me your people

Your starving

Your lonely

Your downtrodden


Yearning for life

For love

For ME

Supercilious I sit

My crown my queen’s chamber pot

I offer you the world

As a token

Spoken in lies deceit

Come to me

Come to me NOW

Commanding my presence

Presents dazzling

Diamonds stolen from your minds

Picked from your mouths

Jewels from your loins

Through these gates

You come unaware

Into my harbor

Safe passage seeking

A way to hell

Through my broken rib

My rotting spinal cord

My dove of doom

I lead you feed you

My Promise Land


I am Greenspam

Randian man

With a plan

To Grinch slap the nation

I speak Obfuscation

Like Berlitz on acid

In a sweaty crack

And dude I am tweakin’

Spinning asset poor

Into economic porn

Wealth disparity downbeats

Laying down tracks like a playah

A consummate hustler

Mini me bagman

Shrugging off dot comas

Gasping debacle

With on The House

Lobotomies like

Twister parodies VAT

And it wasn’t me

My corpse hands

Scrawling memoirs

and escape routes

In my underpants

Smelly poor people

Make me sick

Faltering under portentous

Charts and graphs

I pretend

Not to read so well

Intellectual porridge

Mysterious market trends

Streetwalker panacea

Pick-pocketing analysts

A dazzling new marriage

Between profit’s cancer

And her ugly


Malignant vertiginous

Beowulf deficits

Binging on Tigers

And Bears oh my

Hackneyed fuselage

I call macro theory

Might be a travesty

But whatever

I chew the lean Bra

I play both sides

All ways are

The Maestro’s Way

Knighted in Spishak

I permeate

Beleaguered beginnings

Briny and spineless

A cyst ready to poison

Entropic Lizard King

Prime-rate conjugating

Lending scores in

Fibonacci sequences


Pennies corroding

In a mason jar

Jangling spent

Like they matter

For a million dollars

Someone has to die

Pulling you aside

Into my confessions

Said like urine

In a cup

Trickling infected

Diseased demographics

Vowels in accents

Melting with disparity

My cerebral landfill juxtaposed

In Unrelenting Justice

I am the Father

Of mirth and shadows

Dystopian despot

The Arranger

Skimming fatback

Peeling prosperity off

And this wet dress is

Starting to stink

I want Hasenpfeffer

Give me meat

I gaze pupils gilded

Glinting through

An eyelid wall

My eyes a burning canvas

I melt in waxy arms

Corridor profligate

Hanging in frames

Clanging ironically

Lead glaze worn

Like a starving body

In a trench coat

Buttons chewed off

Shaking my

Bitter fuzzy mosaic

Logic colliding

My fuselage en tempo

I might be a little confused

A wee bit daft

My Medicare proposals

Cash grabbing egos

Vulture shrouded carcasses

Miserly feed


I hear your words like a song

Feel your presence

In every season

But one


Smoldering by the kiva

Pink-cheeked heat

Drinking wine

Until the sun rises

In anticipation


Snowy kisses

Remember how Dreams carry

your essence to me

welcoming me


Sans mot dire


 Bathe us in sweetness

Hair tangled wet

Lightening and laughter


Promises made

I want to smell roses

Lay across your chest

Tickling you


Until you scream

my name

Drink Sangrias

Eat the hottest chiles

and dance with you


Whispering a prayer

Your spirit your quintessence

In every season

Save summer for me
