Show Poem: May 7, 2016 / Omaha, NE @ Milk Run 

Electric eyebrows
Waking up your face

Warm Nebraska morning
I detect no poison in the air 

There is only sky
Soft clouds and maccaroni
And cheese

The best inhale ever tasted

Passionate conversation
Amongst students
Good coffee, early Radiohead

Yellow Magic
I don’t want to know your secret
Nothing profound
Nothing dark
A hazy day of bird watching
Hot dog grilling in the mist
The crack and ting junior league
baseball bats
Dandelions in the park
They cover the hills with temporary stems

The weeds come just like the grass
People try and then they stop trying 

We color the fabrics with blue and gold
One day it’s wheat
One day it’s corn
We learn to stomach the milk
Of other animals. 

We try not to scare anyone in the parking lot
It’s beautiful how we try 

It’s beautiful how we keep
Living, Together
Sacred of so much 

Every raccoon family knows
We move the family at night
We keep our eyes on the headlights 

We watch the snakes making love
Under the porch

Even love exists beneath the belly of the snake
