hot mud at dawn

 

in a handmade dark

knight mug making

eyes like fighting

words into the

blackberry smear

of the bible belt

bruised skyline

mascara.

 

our soul family sun

is a way station of

interdimensional

travel.

 

the dryer buzzer,

the laundry basket,

and two pairs of

narrow stairs later,

 

i pair paisleys and

argyles, vertical

bengal/horizontal

pencil stripes,

barleycorns and

houndstooths, fold

and lay them like

mason’s bricks to

best protect my

pigs in a drawer

of my childhood

chest of.

 

equally

multi-patterned

underwear and

t-shirts i don’t

hang.

 

holy ripe

lapidation and

 

an afternoon in

co-creation with

brother colorado

over radio waves

traveling at the

speed of light

through an

artificially

aluminum

atmosphere.

 

we capture

butterflies in

the jeweled

net of indra,

marvel and

let them go.

 

across the

concrete sea

of street and

parking lot,

i sift in from

the fray into

the muddied

bloodstream

of a

cryptology

confused

community

drunk on the

programmed

waters of the

poisoned well

of a covert

cabal of

sinister

snake eyed

world leaders

to procure

a golden

escape plan.

 

a field of corpse

flowers bloom in

unison along a

side of highway

in a hurry of

absolute slow

motion.

 

brother o/c’s in his

blood and a

phantom kissed

pint glass of glory

to punch at keys to

code the story of

the preamble of

dusk.

 

after twenty minutes

in an oven set twenty

degrees above the

baking temperature,

i remove the roof

of my mouth with

a frozen windy city

slice.

 

unholy hologram

stars shoot like

heroin across the

canvas of the

mulberry skyline,

like a psyop assassin

firing bullets blessed

by the vatican from

the nine millimeter

mouth of an ebony

dragon set in ivory

named drago. 

 

a midnight barefoot

wade in the ink

black waters of

the great

lake michigan under

the tolling of our

church bell death

star moon with my

brother neutral and

his sacred feminine.

 

we capture

fireflies in

the jeweled

net of indra,

marvel and

let them go.
