Gestation

IMG_2540send in the clowns with the shoes that are brown

surrounded by the hoodlums and the rats

in the city where people beat on each other with baseball bats

fractured mind in the warm dark womb

above ground graves tied in with leaves to tombs

body language says it all

people shooting up Wal-Marts in malls

and they say they’re not political?

or am I mis-remembering.

 

 

Aspen

Twisted pines reach

Flags wave and blades bake

McDonald’s lunch for breakfast

Cold nights, frosty windows

A slick beat in your headphones

Raw hunger

Park benches

Swings and gravestones

Down payments and cable bills

Sky streaked, Earth spins

Muddied waters shimmering lily pads

Frozen white green needles

See your breath reach the other side
