iridescent flight
(dragonflied by)

lids danced to REM's.
wings fluttered through.

she'd slipped from blue kimono
while sleeps embrace reached in.

jasmine hint touched breeze
of fine veined wings.

dreams turned, chartreuse pulsed,
winked goodbye as cobalt right by



ghetto teeth (drive by pearling)

don't worry that pretty little head
you're poem waiting to happen
driving through a writers block

there you are waiting for a bus
hair just washed
Sitting Buffalo

proud and bored at once

here I am
Intrepid bubbled zoom
head pointing your way

the weight of my smiling stare
petroleum propelled
sideways glance straight at your pupils

so shoot me with
your ghetto teeth
one grin can change this world

surprized, you missed!

(collaboration with D. Menendez)


goodbye to the last drug
(choco sayonara)

to you who melted in my mouth
to you so sweet and sticky smooth
to you brewed bitter slipping down
my tastebuds scream
yo choco

to you with peanuts ground right up
to you of almonds half flat round
to you which cover puffed rice
and coconut moundy mounds
saliva floods go desert now
goodbye choco


a few off-beat whacku

where is Kerouac
if not in all we write here
mission in the rain
finally read it
long after Richard triggered
bolinas good byes
Jerryless rafael
river without Katey Wolf
Otis haunts the bay
scatter petals
ghost fruit
soon six feet under
glass half filled or half empty
pocket full of now
sun rose bluewhite
second dawn from the west
megatons glare
