a quick little poem
nothing big
anyway i know you'll hate it
bu i think its a cute little poem
what are you putting in
it's not us
it's this

there is something special
that created us
thank god there's no fungus among us
ain't that a plus
otherwise there would be no trust

I told you it was short
and really quick

but do you like it?

Men have been talking about the same thing
for thousands of years
the weather
very little politics
the weather

O Canada

The magic of new mexico sweetgrass
finding the rio
where the gravel begins
feet happy

a few canadians
a truck picked me up while
reminded me of

fuck you

Unbelievably my Aunt, Anne Tolan, a Viet-Nam combat nurse, VA worker is off their transplant list. Does society get any lower than this? I ask you?

the last poem

The last poem was written to my aunt annie. they took her off of the trasplant list. A true American. love you Anne

combat nurse

The river dreamed
and still dreams
bubbles deep rising

all the wounded
all the sick
you found a way to

a true trout stream
where chemicals don't exist

walking with anti poetry

It does not matter too much to me

who carries what

is not needed

the director

I want to believe that the dream I saw last night

was just a

reenactment of all my fears

non-legs stiff

in pain

remorse for

all the movies I have seen

and when I awoke

I was carried to the scene



different director

same plot

no more pink donuts please

hunger is the thing
that makes all mankind susceptible
to sophistry

priceless karma

elephants wanting freedom

as we speak

upside down room

i dont care how they play it
im still going to say it
living in my upside down room

polar bear

my polar bear

sweet polar bear

smooth as a cat

on volcanic rock

he chased the rabbit

but it was not there

but he saw me


on a rock

smooth as a comet

coming in from mars

my polar bear

sweet polar bear

he let me be

for a precious moment

smelled my shit

and then when on about his business

bad call

Watching coach Butch Hobson take the first base after a bad call, ejected, pick it up walk up in the stands and give it to a kid was indeed inspiring.

poem to randi rhodes

the satelitte eyes quavered...

no thats bullshit

try again

rusted bombs meteorific...

umm...not quite

moons and orbit

no dude, if youre going to try...

dig deep mark dig deep


steal from this blue nice
ex non pectant
feet are still good

theres a haiku in there somewhere

you go get it boy
and I i i i

im jealous

ive got beer
licking last drops from
honey tongue



I AM FUCKED UP RIGHT NOW. gloriously fucked up
no quotes please
my skeleton walks
it feels okay
no wisdom though
nothing that can cling to truth

no I will
give breath
noise or


nothing flies


lets think about this

my grandmother once told me never to write anything down
why not granny?
she laughed
just make sure and burn it
I liked to burn things
so i started to write

I realize I have been very selfish and have not let my dogs speak. Henry is the greatest dog in the world, trained early to not be afraid of loud noises. In fact, often loud noises lead to really tasty things to eat. He is pissed. Thinks he lives in a democracy for Oden's sake. Why in the hell, he asks, are they able to get away with this in the land of the free and the homeless?

My girl, a Philly dog, Pooh, stands by the constitution. As long as I read it to her while I'm scratching her tummy and pulling off the ticks.

I wouldn't vote for her in a zillion trillion villion years...

The Fix is In

Hillary will win the nomination. She was meant to. Anything else would throw the whole thing off track. Remember, I called it.

This rage I feel when sober-------to watch one of our leading dem candidates using words like obliterate concerning countries, bringing up Bobby Kennedy in a kind of sigh, you know like, I wouldn't want it to happen but things do happen so I'll be right here when...if it happens...What an entitled, spoiled little bitch. I can't believe I had ever actually held her in some esteem. My wife, always quicker, said years ago that Hillary reminded of her of that generation of women in positions of power who think they have to think like they think men think. Plus she was disgusted that she did not leave Bill...well, perhaps that is where the venom comes from and it makes one think of Bill's ludicrous response of not inhaling. These people feel entitled, will do anything to preserve what they think is the correct impression, snakes------is somewhat ameliorated by booze but more so by booze and work...

I did one of the better paintings of my life a few nights ago, of my male golden. That helps, more than booze although I had shared a case and pint with a firefighter friend while I did it.

I had done a 4'X4' of him playing guitar with his dog Jake. I'll try to load it and my pup. Now 7, so only a pup in my eyes.
