The Dogs of Heaven

17 Jul

I’ve seen the electric
snakes and the human
tigers- sometimes they
become electric tigers
and human snakes- but
only at times. Always
plowing the streets like
rockets and stray lithers.

I sit here and suffer from
a perpetual self professed
desire to be unhappy born
out of meretricious catharses
constantly brought on by the
transient world, or is it the
ambient world? Either way it
is the world at large that does
this- not the world in parts of
summum bonum.

And. I’ve been kissed by the
lovely dolphin maidens- that
some say come from the sea.
I’m not sure if the latter is true,
but I do know their nettle kisses
sting me feeling like a hundred
thousand pin pricks on my lips.
They take some of me, and leave
me in return bruises and whispers
of games of chance played
against the dogs of heaven.

Saint Torpedo

2 Nov

Pilot yourself towards hell-kite
with this thyroprotein fix,
and the thrum of
horselaughter.

Firing missiles of playful
melasma while watching
breaking
teashop glass
jugglers in one of
the rings of this
circus home.

Painless and uncommitted
like Heracles giving lifeblood
to a gigantic clon slamming
dread- everything- all of this!

All of this reanimated
mustering, and me with an
explosive brainstorm breach.

Chaotically and nevermore
from Heaven comes-
Saint Torpedo-
with his shiny joy of
coolness- a cold
sloganeer- and with his
shiny glow he heals
with power holy
graceful
and greening.

The station master said,
“I died that’s all,”
when I saw him down at
the station waving
the flags and
crying out
loud, I know the feeling,
that’s all, and I say a
prayer to Saint Torpedo-
before things get out
of hand.
