Ya got to tend things.

Deer gets nailed trying to cross the road in the winter. Body thrown in the ditch. I roll by it in the spring on my bike.
Big hole in the side of the carcass - like the entrance to a cave.

the “wo” in “woman” stands for “wife”. And to refer specifically to male humans, Old and Middle English had the word wer, which is the origin of were- in werewolf.

Ya got to tend things.

sub-conscious - 1.
of or concerning the part of the mind of which one is not fully aware but which influences one's actions and feelings:

I called up Jimmy Morrison the other day. I said, "Jimmy, you were right. This is the land where the Pharoah died." He replied, "Tell me about it, the last thing I remember is sitting in a bathtub in Paris."

Ya got to tend things.

I fixed the lawnmower today.

Someone needs to fix the rain.

Rolling on a ride today I pass the carcass of a small bird on the shoulder. I turn around go back. Small brown bird, if it had young back in the nest they are all dying now. Things being connected as they are. I took a last look knowing my own life as passing too. Then I spun the cranks, the electic motor kicked in helping me up the hill.

Had my 2nd shot last week, and only now feel like I'm hitting on all four. My symptoms were mild - listless & lethargic, with a slight headache the first day - but slow to depart.

I step outside to pee, and off in the bush I hear a robin - or what sounds like one. But this robin is using phrases I've never heard from one before - including a repeated pattern of four identically pitched high notes. I return for the TasCam, but by the time I've got it mounted on the tripod and step back outside, it has fallen silent. The fish always seem to be elsewhere when you finally dip your baited hook into the water.

A phoebe tauntingly laughs behind me, and somewhere a chipmunk is barking. A hawk launches himself from a treetop, and sails off deeper into the woods. I hear the rattle of a pickup near the base of the hill, and listen to it approach as I wait to see who it is.

It's Dave, probably on his way to another contracted construction job.

The mystery bird starts up again, so I position the recorder and set it to capture. I'll upload it later to see if it was worth the wait.

This bird walking back/forth on this branch next the river the bird is brown with a nest nearby - addresses, I need addresses - I need to clean off my drawing table so I can use it to work as it was intended for - as it is just bare enough room to address a postcard -

clutter is a real enemy around here or around anyplace comes to cases - any clean horizontal surface is Indian country - waiting to ambush unwary passerbys or is that bystanders? Is either spelled right? You can get anal 'bout anything. Another big danger. Objects in space - you can actually measure in cubic inches how much "space" an object occupies which is anal since "space" is a theoretical anomaly anyway - "existence" is also a theory, I mean did "existence" apply to anything before God created Adam? Take that notion to your preacher. Do it on a Thursday, Thursday is a good time for that sort of thing, the rush of the current week has spent much of its energy and there is this pause as the weekend gears up, this pause is always on a Thursday. So Thursday is a perfect time for notions such as "existence" -

No bird at the moment, she flew off just up river landed in a bush has been singing her ass off - I can hear her but not see her, she is officially an "unlocated bird" "unlocated" in relation to me at any rate - my dog is licking and nipping her paws in attempt to deal with fleas -

fleas - the parasitic nature of life is all around us - we have been to the moon and currently have our sights set on Mars but no one has ever broken the parasitic cycle of life - it doesn't get much play among the utopians either -

the thought of the last thing and the next thing appears/disappears ...

Paperback Poems



George in New Zealand - here's your massive shaky

Jamie in North Carolina - here's your historical noiseless

Don in Wyoming - your unadvised boats are gaping

Pablo in Chile - you stare at wind

Linda in Cali - your excellent wrench, you know it bonny

Bo in Alabama - the pieces don't move around the board by themselves

SuZu in New Jersey - o you sweet girl

Paperback Poems

Pammy, it's a goner, a real leaker.

Dave, now's your chance, shut the fuck up.

Anna Louisiana, dead in the shit pond.

Walden, from Missouri, head shot, freaked out, helicopter city.

Jamie, bye-bye dadio, Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Amasa, god-damn cannibals, Gettysburg, PA.

William, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, practicing pimp control, high-stepping, on fire.

Rando, Albuquerque, one for good luck.

Nebraska Judy, snake eyes - a lot of bounce, a cow finally did him in, flatter than hammered shit -

Zuzoom - cuddling the dead, dust trail, a bit dull for Howard, no address

sad ass jack in Astoria
a trail of blood from east coast to west

trucker named Andy with a steel plate in his head
with his shoulder to the wheel trying to push a semi sunk to the axles in mud
he knew what to the max meant
I had to tell him the war is over, its peacetime let's' wait for a hook 8)

It's Peacetime Let's Wait for a Hook


Give me a moment, I'm going through the contest crate for any interesting & agreeable demonics right now ...

- hell, all I see is an old tube of terrorist toothpaste, my corn husk shoes are falling apart from so much time out in the stink yard - even the ugliest plan would be an exuberant discovery at this point of harmonious imminent cling -

the masturbatory didactic! fuck! send oranges to a charity! I'm about to dash into the alley where the voice babies are waiting for their Mother's promised return - fresh sparks disobey gravity, long society isn't that long, my tacky and broken fangs ain't enough anymore to swallow snails much less catch them

... and I shake putting on my shirt.

If I had been born in Tokyo I'd be madly expensive by now.
