Greater Silo

All these birds flySlow and go competing for skyWay way outIn the heavy skiesDo shadows get high? Low and broken groundWaits now competing for sky And I don’t wanna directToo many hands in the deck All these birds flySlow and go competing for skyWay way outIn the heavy skiesDo shadows […]

Simple Brought Down

Of course there was moreIn spite of all the recent sufferingsIt’s blurred, we’ll go out Machine operatorCan you swing the weightAcross the concrete lakeYou’re holding onThe ball that wrecks this industryIgnoring private capital And you’re quite a boreHanging out in tavernsThick with all who ignore you Clean operatorCan you swing […]

Radio Spaceshow

She’s cunning with her bag of artShe’s out there writing something about meDon’t add to your darlingsMornings are dark, dear Replacing cogsFilled dim bulbsSwitched out carried over dirt The sound of your chainsGives you awayWhen she cries only numbers come outAnd she screams it’s only numbers Your house going overDay […]

Post-Helen Prank

It’s great to be backIn the lawn gnome predicamentOh noA once tepid signatureAnd I’m right back in the thick of it In your cold beer stanceRight hand juggles left hand’s vicePost work pantsYou’re standingYou don’t know what day it isAnd the bubbling smoke lifts my head Around these people saySurrounding, […]

Octopied

Twisted beads and shapes to wearFrozen sticks no time to careLeave me on the docksSimple colors twist in linesFondle stop the fast rewind Olive on top I’ll fucking kill youMidnight comes eight waysSloppity drunks more dirt than weedAnd we’re offWearing boots and happy deadWelcome all the overfedIntertwined in frozen something […]

Four Leaf Door

And we’ve got the toolsFor scaling the fishAnd there’s much less time to react I’ve got my bearings straightDo you have yours too?Is there enough time?And the bumbling idiot party goes on A line has formed behind the kegA four leaf doorA broken neck against the girdersWhere do we go […]
