plus minus
equals this
the square root
of 6
over the
of a cell
a cog in a machine
built to run
not propel
but survive
melted and gelled
over millions of theories
beat down by a series
of figurative hells
Like the New & Improved
idea of god
in like a lion
out like a shot
Little Cohesive Entity over there,
she sat down and thought
but please, excuse me, it must
be the pot.


religions for pigeons
bong hits for the first amendment.
for the rights that the
government will never append to!
the age old "changing times."
trading lemons for apples
and apples for limes
and rusty old spoons
for shiny new rhymes.
to scour the planet of some caustic grime
an onsluaught of free thought
store bought
labels and nine or ten cables
attached to our brains
so when we walk in the rain
electric pulse pain & fetal position
the new! inquisition.


aspartame, rid this place of its
nasaeous fame
diet coke drinkers,
die of cancer.


Yes sir!
No sir!
stop and go sir!
the smell of burning flesh
still lingers
oh the stink!
just lick your fingers
and taste what you think!
