Show Poem: October 22, 2016 Lexington, KY @ Frigidkitty House #poetry 

Sprocket tongue wake up
It’s alway tease, tease, tease
And then it’s please, please, please
And sometimes it just bad cheese

Gassing up for the apocalypse
Saigon square
A horse with wings
All hail to the common market

Chasing balls in the backyard

Early morning haircut
Charlotte with the beautiful eyes

Aging men in bicycle shorts
Luggage on a Sunday morning

The trees take me somewhere
New and familiar
They grow out of rocks sometimes

Unable to refresh, I turn my head
And smell another flower

Advanced mountain driving
Waiting for the curve
My life and the 2.9 seconds
Crossing the Captain Paul Hardy Bridge

Innovation corrupting the sons
And daughters of maintenance

Good chicken and friendly owls
Electric mushrooms
Growing accustomed to our
Dependence on the kindness
Of strangers

Who’s life did I save
In another life to deserve this

“Blow on the coal of the heart
And we’ll see by and by”

Books on a shelf
With every wet nose a sort of
Home coming
