"Projecting"

Can you tell me about

the Hamiltonian operator?

No, you're just projecting.

"Right Behind U."

Where is the sky?

Far away

Truthfully

It's far away

But if you ask again

it's right behind u.

Claire H

"Eyeball"

It's not your eyeball

You took it from us all

It's time to put it back

Now set it on the rack

So we can throw it at the wall

Sorry

But someone had

to say it.

"Gibrish"

Things don't make sense when people speak

gibrish

gobbly hog hom dig hom putink alink

see I told you, Gibrish.

LPW

Dragons!

Soaring flames through the air,

Flying, swooping, without a care,

Their scaly skin glistens in the sun,

I really wish that I could be one.

"Hush Hush"

A back to the waterfall

A look to the book

A hound to the sky

And a kiss to the wind

The crackling brush

the wayward tush

Hush Hush

my fine-looking crush

Oh what a rush!

River running through the rocks

And here is where we start

     a new stanza,

Is a mouse

who lives in a house

where she gets saused

In the bosom of her mother's blouse

"Empty"

Corn is Empty like

Porn.

Dylan

Real

Okay, so today

in my class

without my lass

it was chaste <--- This is pronounced "chast" but means chaste

and form to be cast

aside

woo!!

With blue

in the sky

I shall rest

zzzzz...

"I Tell You"

When I consider how

This always seems to happen

blue, shoe,

I tell you!

Wherein Turn of the Screw?

Rosa

"Gonads"

nomads, in this land

gonads, in the sand

the desert of our fruitful life

the reckoning of mortal strife

I wish, at once, for grace + tutu

For corporeal freedom, for endless youth

yet here I sit, a dusty lad

And witness you: a bean gonad

Dylan saw a bean and said it

looked like a gonad. I said:

"ew."

On Being Italian-American in 21st Century America:

I grew up making Ravioli

like they do in the old country

where we feed the cows

the old bread

fresh, from the bakery.

And here,

there's no Ravioli.

Just,

hotdogs.

Dr. Phil

You make everybody

tell the truth

"Taco"

A chiuaua named Taco

is French

FEED HIM CHOCOLATE
see if he can take it

he is French.

as if that fucking matters.

he is French with a Spanish name.

FEED HIM A CHOCO TACO

The Promised Land

The Revolution will not be funded

It will come through free labor

of will/

and sweat/

and hope/

and that is why it will be recorded in the 

history books

As good nature

But flawed in excecution

and ultimately failed

But I was there.

And I saw

And I will tell

and maybe that's a Revolution initofitself

The Bee

"Noise Machine"

When I was twelve my parents bought me a noise machine

for my birthday.

Because birthdays are for when you Get Older.

I chose to fall asleep to the

sound of frogs

Because I loved the ones that lived in the ditch

outside my house.

Complicated noises came from that

Hammecher Schlemer box

for a simple girl

Braindata

101100100110

That's what my computer

whispers in my ear on long nights

10010 Her electronic hum of connectivity

I want to connect to her

closed ports, to write to her

100100 Ram. I hope her harddrive has

space, no floppy disks.

"Skull"

I thought his skull seemed a bit

strange, floating down the river

Re-Color

Law is just on my mind

because sometimes people only knew

you name in the court

because I'm afraid of the internet

ya know?

Being tracked on the internet

Notiriety is a bitch.

"NMR"

Nuclear magnetic resonance

run your sample without any hesitance

An alcohol peak

makes your knees weak

If only the ethanol signal was less intense

Will you forgive me for being

in the water so long?

NO! I say, no no, sorry, but I am

wet and tired, please let me

go home, you're the reason I am fish!

ii.

Home, where are the flavors?

I want the spicy one, the

one a girl named Veronica tried

on like a coat. But I know I'll be

a vanilla bean.

Fine, I have my colors and alcohol

I asked you at the dustuff to Tahe

my name. Wear it on your

I try to find it

 

"Satiate"

Double Stuf without the F

to satiate this longing

RIP Bill

The time has come

What Happened to Giacomo?

At, like, 5:02 PM

I notice that about once a week

the shadows from my hands

grow on and in wooden table

and stretch into a middle name

Suddenly, my hair is in pigtails.

"Handwriting"

Here I am now trying to make

My handwriting look better

while I a see a brown glassed

small mouthed bass

out of the side of my eye

but the hand of mine is

sliding and the movie is turning off

When I Carry More

I experience this repeated time spent

in flicks

that I guess could be glitter

or rather

sheep

because they mold around the grass

that holds the modern

Ajax and Horatio

Diana Ross

We met

and you went away.

But now we dance

and we dance and we dance

I'm too shy to go on.

I sincerely hope it wasn't a stink bug.

"Half-Cursive"

Uncle Vanya,

half-cursive, thought it'd

go short, took my

time, watched the gun

go blank--

and missed shot,

bad voice, "did I

enjoy the play?"

Yes, and I spent

time away, enough,

to say I would

not see it again. The

Doctor, maybe. The rest

maybe.

Cognitive Poetry

No good at being drank

Not willing to spend the money

Mooching here and there

Won't get you anywhere

No green fairy, no Rimbard

No such thing as superior sobriety

not aggressive enough

I lick the stamps, but they don't stick

Run to the post office, please deliver ASAP.

I drank too much water

and wow I have to pee

It was my own damn fault,

my bladder feels like a sea

Shit, fuck, where's the possy

It started as a normal date

but when he whipped out the anal beads I knew it

I didn't want this poem to go down this path

CHEAP!

OK BYE

okay: So it started off as a normal date.

Then he ordered the talapia

when the waiter was bringing over the talopia he tripped

an spilled it on my head--I had spent 4 hours sharp--

going it--

but I wasn't mad at the waiter, in fact, this "mishap"

~sparked a special bond~

eventually he went on a date at a roller blading rink...

we didn't realize it was a 9 yr old's bday

They used to call me Ferris

Haunt this town, phantom

I'm watching American Beauty

In you rented jacuzzi

The Snale Watcher

I Can Fuck It

I tell of a drunk poet

who was not really Polish

He said to his next of kin

"I can fuck it"

Please my Lord

Let me enter that fecund Valhalla

I hate the American dollar

I just want to fuck it

Why couldn't I fuck it

Where was the fucking Canadian border

Why is fucking such a complicated word

Why do people say who fucked first

I'm from Alabama

Sipping orange juice in the phantom

I still watch slugs

I can fuck it I can fuck it.

"Bushy Bushy Face"

I was saving while I came

up with it

Bushy bushy face,

Uncle Vanya

Makes me think about

if I was an "actress"

which role I would always play

because everyone just does themselves

Hill or Boton, it's all the same

and no one has "range"

I can't higher octave

kilk my voice into a

and I like attention

but not that much

plus I can't sing

fuck fuck fuck

I'll never be a Kenyon theatre star

:(

"Muse"

Sing in me muse!

Of a man crusted

and brined

scare of the

slopes who's dust

blanche is

breathed from

mirror to

mirror.

Rage, muse,

and anst!

G-d made me ski slopes

for us to buy cheap dope

how can the gods pass blame

when the slopes call my name?

Like a dragon

when it breaths

white fire

scorgéd winson

cross plane

and sea

winsoton, blower

of snow

anal can not be our finale

yet it be done or Denali

how can we be judged by the cosmos

when it is felt most?

An Ode to Daddy Eli

When you take off your sweaty

Tight, delicious ultimate jersey I...

swoon the veins on your arms pop

and your heaving breath reminds me of the

breath of G-d

you are grace

you make me want to confess my sins

Bless me

And forgive me

the bookstore

but Jodie Pursel was watching from the window

she never quite fit in

and each filled a different void

and each made my stomach ache

I was talking about people, you fuckers

WRONG AGAIN

Bobby, Freddy, Brad and John

the 4 boys I made out with

I loved 2 of them, for days I pined over which to pick

Bobby brought me a mockingbird, Freddy a bundt cake, Brad a dozen roses

and John an iPhone 62

but then Mailena walked in...

I was a lesbian

I realized when my nipples hardened...Oh Mailena!

I knew I was gay when Bobby suggested

"Do It Thrice"

Booger-sailing blues,

I miss my family

Upon Mont Saint Machataneu,

as I sip from my "red solo cup"

I belch on my Natty lite-- "hiccup!"

O, why hath thou been hathest?

What hath happened thou, so blas'ph'mous?

shawty thick, like mashed rice.

I'd like for her to do a split on my dick

And do it thrice!

Gabe, Catherine, Maria, & Lib

"Laden"

It was Halloween day

The air was cold.

They sky was dear

and there is nothing to fear

So the months & years after,

they grew more distant...but stronger....

their bond could not be broken...they grew

and like a potted/plant

with obtrusive, dropped leafs

thick with heavy rain. Laden.

Full. Fleshed out. Pleghardt. 

"Escalators and Dares"

elevators and stairs

escalators and dares.

Tell me what you want from me

Head.

oops.

That doesn't rhyme

she told me that she cares.

"Rumpy Rump"

spare the cream, whip, whip the funk

touch me soft on my rumpy rump.

I gotta bolt when my bowels thump

THUMP. THUMP. THUMP.

"Fully Alone"

Ooh ooh my turn.

I want to play this game

words are my only friend

I am fully alone

this sounds sadder than it is

I just farted

LOL, my dudes.

I'm. sorry. ok?

Art

Art is the refusal to give up;

Art is Kamchukta shots on a Tuesday.

Am I Art? If I'm not, does art matter?

could art be the fluffy dog's bark?

I think it could, art could be youre yes on a Wesnesday morning,

or Tuesday, if we're speaking generally-- I usually do

Does art speak in my ear when I can't sleep?

When I dream, does Michelangelo dream

with me?

I don't think he does. I cry alone in my bed,

every night, as I listen to the smokers outside my 

room-- they have more fun than I.

on spring mornings, I think I want to escape to the

sky...

and I cry and I cry--

just wondering-----

what could art could be?

me?!

This Time Will Be The ONE

It can't be just about games + fun.

justification is in the rum,

i'm done sitting here, cluthering my daddy's gun

Holding tight. Nothing to fear.

We are here. We are here.

For the lvoe of God don't drink another beer

Steer merril, merely hear me.

feel me, understand me, hold me

Moan for me. Dome for me.

Eat a spoonful of loam for me

Looming toam unto me under Moon.
