Summer, 2007


Walking down Hott guys
on ice. Everything is nice.
Catsup.

Reading “Slaughterhouse Five” again.
Billy Corgan
bland.

Steam rises from
the fries. Cooking shows
all day. And into the night.

Too tired from
laying down too
much.

Piles of mulch on the
sidewalk. In front
of condo across street.

Summer sweet
Ice cream treat
Novelty.

Provenance
Lording over everything
Sweaty in the museum.

No-see-ems
Nazi, burning ’cause
you can not-see them.

Absolutely.
Not even
A little bit.

Spit.
Sports television
Aaron Sorkin’s “Sports Night”

Fright of
never darkness
Allowances

for what should
not
be allowed.

Golden Cow.
Differences in religion
Cardamom

Small twigs
Arranged into
faces.

Places
Islands that were
separated

Dollywood.
The mainland.
Off-shore.

Wires.
Liars.
Fire burning fires.

Good paper
expensive stores
sweet-smelling

paste.
Rough on tongue
to the taste.

Depress-
ors.
“Family Guy”

Jokes,
artichokes.
