Heloise Also Dies

As with a newborn's scent, our hormones get a jolt,when encountering death.

There is a smell to it, a unique property that writes upon the senses, a signature beyond our awareness, read aloud.

In Heloise I am taught this morning, a mourning lesson for a second time in single week.

Abelard seems to experience a similar disturbing confusion, desiring food and physical contact more than before.

Another tragic love seperate unrequited dust blows through the moment of fuzzy being.

Hogwashin' dem Hecklers

Ol' Sam Clemens scribed 'bout hecklers, but I kin find no evi-dunce he had a one.


How-evah, in dis measure, whoms 'mongst us cud be all-n-all heckle free?

See-nonymous wi'da hecklin is da diss-e-dent, de agi-tater, an der milly-tent.

But dat ain't no matter. 


Dem dare gud hecklers kin provoke da comin' audience inta rapt atten-shun,
whilst da bad heckler allows his pride ta turn de 
odd-ee-nce agin' him.

I a'reckon der ain't no othern way than jes 'spect if y'all be in a speakin way dat sum tarnation fired up uppity varmits gwonna try'n take ya down a notch.

Now da good publican verbologist dast nod ignore dat heckler.
Dey will soon de-scover dair growing incredi-billity to de heckler's de-splay.

Shoutin down der heckler only givest dem da powder for dair blazing gums.

Engaging wit de audience agin a heckler might jes nigh turn into a lynchin' of ewe or da hem.

One of ta bettern ways fir all y'all to go cattywampus on a heckler wannabe, is jes git real quiet like and lookee him straight in de aye-ball.

Soon'r din you'n cun say lickety split, der heckler will be a rockin back on his'n heels, takin der ornery right outta 'em.

Dow'n evah let de odd-ee-nce see y'all takin a grin at the hecker's cum-up-ance.
Dey be sure fired to turn on ya and show dat tar and dem feather where dey be-long.

Waning Poppers Decohere

I too once
suffered upon others
agonies of unwitting
reality bubble popping.


Dancing from mind
to mind poking
at the shiny
gas filled cavities
of unexamined assumption.

A tawdry skill
mastery of which
was not begun
until mosquito minded
sage Socrates burst
several of mine.


One has come
to a place
where mind can
barely build shells
of content comfort
to explore vanity.

Now my bubbles
have trouble cohering
before or after
the evanescent moments
they are thought.

Memories of Recent Days

Memories of Recent Days

Tree in a Snow Puddle

Found on a winter cabin's morning

Rat-a-tat-tat


Landlording
is an education 

all its own.


Under the tub,
in between floors, 

above high cabinets
that are often ignored, 

a creature's remains
were made plain.



It died alone
in the dark
without water
or food.


Where it came from
or how did come in?


It long had been 
in such state.
There was no smell,
no sense of immediacy.

Even the shells
of the carrion
that ate here
are long dry.

I too am a tenant.
My being rented it

from my first split
to my faded bones.
