Chicken (followed by the day's date)

en passant, those muffled heaps of spring
My beard's not as grey as the orange in your rug You say you'd like these glasses broken but your mouth is kind of dumb It just keeps right on talking and there's nowhere I can run Lets listen to the stars fall out lets walk hand in hand I was blessed by heaven but born too high I ran with the martyrs I lived to die my futures gone and my past lives passed I'm unequivocal a bargain a matchless fool with a goners gasp Everything that's looking good and feeling kind is now the color blue it thinks its very reasonable despite its point of view Everyone that voted red hates this kind of math its winter time in Syracuse and summer in the west Oh I lost and found my beer again it was buried in the yard right beside the old oak tree beneath the dying lawn Fire with fire sorting all the flame and sorting this smoke from high she falls like rain on an astronaut way up in the sky fall fall falling stars she's see's them falling all night long Everything is beetle dumb it's tumbled down in the mud and garden slums She bleeds she's bored its white and orange Belles of Femme and Drang ring out when she opens up the door She'll make the sad clowns laugh but the frogs still need to sleep to worry worry Every day she casts the nickels from her burdens in the dirt before her feet She turns around her luck again she leaves this town behind Her horse might sail on broken legs but her saddle doing fine   
The things that we find in the old notebooks are ragged. They're all filled through to the worry with these terrible strings of impotent words intended to distill the angst and the lust of teenage stupidity. Give us a kiss instead, We're outside by the harbor wall. She doesn't like to talk about work. Not when it's come to this. The last of the boxes, all of the heavy ones are in the van now. She's heavy too, her shoulders droop and I think maybe some coffee will help?
No, I can't stay, She looks up and asks about the other things. I left some stuff on the sink and by the bed. Is that alright?
I'll manage it. Don't worry, This is only until you get back right, I brush the hair out of my eyes.
I hope so. Sleeping alone, She fake shudders.
I made you a mix-tape, She laughs at my stupid. My forever stupid head, she says it's funny and then she hugs me until I feel like a cold wad of wet paper with an erection. There were boxes and boxes of dusty spiral notepads, record books, and bound journals. Some have cut up pictures of wind surfers and hair models tacked into them with stiff yellow glue. The older books crackle and their bindings will split once they're opened.
The oldest of them is 40 maybe 50 years, most of that time in one of these boxes. There were 38 boxes in the back of the booth. This doesn't include the ones that have film canisters in them. The films are off to Brighton first thing. I guess they'll open those up and see if they're toxic inside, I said as she dug in her pocket for something. My shirt's dusty and somehow the leg of shorts got torn. Now my knee is bleeding into my shoe. They're terrible, make it stop, You laugh at Josh or Alex the boy poet. He's so painfully aware that he's in so much pain. I hope they stopped throwing words at him before died.
What are you doing?
Oh I have a pen in here somewhere and I was going to leave you a note, Her hair flips up and she laughs.
Get out of here you. Go on, I shew her away. Just git.

Got a dog in my earring (an instance of 3)

H' after everything is a mailbox stamp knows. Don't, it's all bad. Like a captain bad.

Own Mah Own Rose

What say the fallen in the Vestibule, late to dinner  Warm as a garden chair Yes to that, to tea and all  in the green as pale as peaches will get 

Turd Grinder IV: Keep me in line for a little while longer, just until you have to go again. The dark wave and the first jolt from my morning coffee are elements that have yet to sheep. Looking through a ton of old glass is hard. Sitting down and sifting through the odd bits of sparkle and dust left inside this hidey-hole at the bottom of this calendar. There's almost always more bitter mixed in there then there is the sweet.  Fontso: I'm so happy-happy to see that this work is being edited down. All of it's been sitting on the back of my desk forever. Where plastic gets soft in the sun and the desks window looks out south all day long it's always so hot. Turd Grinder IV: There's safety in warmth, freedom from reprisal among the pillows, in the soft down. The clock inside is as deep as a clouds kiss.  Fontso: Onion thugs, yello…

In fashion, passive is to envy the figure smote.

Juniper, cedar and all that's old tends to settle on the bus in the corner by this door. It's not quick, joints are popping like failure. Left alone in the kitchen, looking for matches until it can light the stove. "There once was a night here," I've said as much before.
Corn conjured syrup from the corn that I brought from the back of the store. The simple pleasure of falling into that warm slip isn't like drying off or tempting the man at all. It's a lottery with pages of never knowing it all the first time that I was there.
A three way intersection where the street is wet. There's shrink-wrap that's been spooled across each of the pedestrian walkways. It's secured with bulky knots to the street lamp, the sign post and the scooter at each of the corners. There's a garage door or something else done up in yellow with blue steel doors. In the street there's garbage and soon enough an umbrella will join your car keys.
There's alr…
