That reminds me...

Speaking of zombies, you might want to visit Shain Erin's place. Or search his name in Google Images.

pivot

twist away
ticklish
flaws in a soft
exploration of
disturbances
counting close
catching far
learning
the open chain
of confusion
sweet confusion
without guile
one unimportant
question answered
with circumference

Driving Poem #41

lcmt

I wrote a poem for my father while driving to work today
I said "I miss you" to his molecules and atoms

then I was glad
he did not have ears
to hear my grief

then I wrote more words
that needed to be forgotten
more words for an audience
of three
my father the moment and me.

To those of you who are trying to be happy
who will mourn if we do not? not the trees
not the stones the stars the river the sand the ash

only you and me

and maybe dogs

Escape from the literal

Some of my asemic writing has been posted at The New Post-Literate, which is a fun place to visit weekly. I also recommend the blast that is Michael Jacobson's Mynd Eraser.

Working on The Wife of History and Other Planetary Characters

lcmt

The new book has shaped itself into a rather labor-intensive project. I'm only 50% confident that I will be able to print copies for sale by the November deadline I set for myself.

Here are nine of the twenty-eight page decorations:

according to a consensus
of five co-conspirators
her right eye is blue
her left eye is a match

but she knows one eye
is smaller than the other
and both are the color
of a common gray rock

flecked with oxides
thirty years have passed
since she last wore a shoe
with a broken heel

she inscribes herself
readily as owner
operator general

Galosh Studio Press
which has neither
intaglios nor presses
nor even a lone galosh

she is a woolgatherer
a dawdler
an ignoramus
an omnivore

a deficient typist

she is nine inches long
from the inside of her elbow
to the inside of her wrist
she is legged but not

bow-legged and less
saline than most people
but that could be
a misapprehension
