Ode To Spring (and Eleven 1st Magnitude Stars)

I have waked beneath
a string of trees

miraculously blooming
against the black

of night and thought
not of blossoms

but rather

I had walked beneath
a descending constellation.

Quarter To Midnight, Secaucus

Motion turns off my horizon's light
as if she were a parent
wishing her only child sweet dreams.

Quarter to midnight, Secaucus
I leave you and enter through
the tight black mouth

of New York City's sleeping body.

It Was Funny At The Time

The Shortest Distance

I am a dash
to your extended line

a naked body
in the center of your road

stretching on forever
in both directions.

Wag For Me

Show me that school boy smile
once reserved for
class pictures
and your first missing tooth.

Heso Magari

In Japanese
this means
your belly
points you
in the opposite
direction of the pack.

Oh friend,
I was lonely.
A lifetime of
lonely, relieved
by the company
of your lovely definition.

Sanitized Revolution

Dryer sheets
chase tails
circle prey
like aromatic twins.

French Kiss

One day
we will kiss
like the French eat asparagus;
using our hands

directly into our mouths.

For Filet Mignon and Spirits

My family does not believe
in firm recipes.
is supposed to be different than
yesterday or

Medium flame.
In this order:
butter, onion, garlic, mushrooms.

Low flame.
Wine, beef bullion, soy sauce, ketchup.
Salt and pepper to taste.

Drink wine
S t i r.

This is how
I raise my father from the dead.
