Familiar

a spider crawled on
me

I was not scared
I cupped it up in a tincan
it shriveled—

protective

then I took the cup
and tapped it gently
on a rock

the spider dropped
and crawled off

*

every moment contains this
power that is within each and every living thing

soon I’ll have to
go to
the center pick up up
and find a way
through used against

*

today is hot and losing energy towards
warmth

evaporation dehydration

the normal
parts

language

*

overweight
tension mountains
the wireless tenant
who carelessly adheres to the
finest of firmament

leather tether and plethora
a multitude

time watches
tick switch

gain
momentum-ears

*

encyclopedia
castles grammar
tong of elephants drinking
garbage cans
toaster the

news of
gun shots

not of this neighborhood

can’t wait
amusement park
jars in a line
cupboard door

lethal injected
stars

historical
heaps of liquid furniture
Pavarotti
baked ziti

everything you could imagine hungry
days like this are what we were born for

*

I’m glad I’m not
working in a place
that would kill me

not another signifier of silenced murder
another wayside insect
that one less tree that
was in the way
how many limbs of heads
can a cat of loss lose
till the
of
part
of its
at
can’t contain
a see

there’s a place for everything
piles of city trash can find a home
for psyche
dislodged alphabets

rattling about the heat while
retaining the
promise of fair and just trials the
confidence

in a headless pumpkin
seedlessly swirls on
hence we have laureates and penguin

but lies mimic the lies which purchase
their ears to know
of what isn’t emotionally available, another

coffee

*

press this button then
pull back from
being

and watch

the dog pops out of the box
licks

and drops back in and
step forward into being

and wait until
necessary
pushing grows on

and communicates
timing

coil in
now again
button

here comes the dog

*

the earth has a tilt
common knowledge
tilt of the earth
not normal
caused by something somewhere along the line

climate change
there is a tilt
no one can explain

a tilt of sun too far at times a tilt too close at patterns

corroboration soon
nothing familiar
