Santa Ana winds tromboning my peripheral vision

half-written rain drips from this finger mountain

floating down the river of hands a fleet of baby coffins

still life she cuts the sleeping pill in half

Silence of Stars seashell the illuminated song murdered rogered more times over the radio birds tweeting dreaming away from the border night bats red October the foxtrot of a passing wind ascending slowly the wet mist & whose hand grieving mosquito dead too, dead too spring awakening the rumours of red horizon invading the privacy of the night silence of stars

“culture� the homunculus springs up with seven words a motorcycle as it starts to consider a question the unlucky youths who built the space elevator which body part is the moon tonight

76


Taking Out the Trash painkillers working the night breeze outside my door

wind chimes taking out the trash slowly

wind chimes/crickets trash in hand I wonder which clichĂŠ to choose

pain in my knees cricket song carries me

no story . . . just the night breeze on my bare arms

before moonrise heat lightning in the east

now a failed haiku because my pain wants a mention with moondark and crickets

77


barely galactic

milky way your granny was born on earth where no goober has gone before they send uss behind the ion thruster an admiral snickers pregnant butterfingers wait to see Bones mars bar a roman kisses a humot then eats him

within the beehive within the beehive buffalo love troubadours collect melodies within the beehive within the beehive the weaver’s constellations the sweet and the sour within the beehive no exchange rate within the beehive vanquished prairies within the beehive mirrored within the beehive the original deployed before the beehive a god’s quiver evermore the beehive’s Solomon
