Show Poem: KC, MO East Wing 4/29/16 

Tit to the gut
Making love
On a squeaky mattress 

Eggs from a rubber chicken
Protection from the process 

Shitty day after two good days 

There are many things to step in
Many pitfalls when crossing the road 

Laundry is easy, people are hard 

There are cracks and judgement
Differing opinions
Various styles and hair cuts
Often different than your own 

Even the basement is not safe

Crack research teams
Shitting where they eat 

Eaves dropping on their friends
Jotting down notes about
Watering holes and mating habit 

And we trust them all because they
Listen to us
They talk to our pets
Nod at our confessions
About where we store our gold
And how we stack the deck
Against ourselves
So the next morning
We awake the king and queen
Of the losers
And the lonesome
And the living
Of life
filled by failure

Next Show: Fri. Apr. 29 KC, MO @ East Wing w/ Little Big Bangs (St. Louis) + Scammers + Toad Tartare 

Show Poem: KC, MO 4/16/16

Is it that important that we
Get off so easily

Every turn of a page
Every touch to a screen
Every look up from the highway 

Church of metal plates
Reaping the damage

The patriotic cross 

Sexual tension and rocket launchers
Men in caves with
Pizza slice hands 

Spining the records
On diamond tipped needles

We scratch our way through
Another morning

Blue streaks and soft skin
On the backs of your calves 

Little hairs that soften the lines
Like a hazy moon dance 

Letting the crud pass easily
To the stomach
Extracting the nutrients from the waste
Gluing things back the wrong way 

Stars over time will find there place
In any landscape
It’s okay 

Beside the plastic
Beneth the walla of the crowd
Everything will find its place
