Berlin @ Internet Explorer 11/7/17 #poetry

We used to dress up
To fly on airplanes
We smoked cigarettes,
Talked to strangers
And drank Champagne
At the bar…
Thirty thousand feet
In the air
The air moved around us
Really really fast

There is a plant
In some dirt
In a pot
On a table
On a rung
On the floor
In a room
In a building
On a street
In a city
Near a place
Where a wall
Used to be

You must be so tired of hearing about it
Tired of alway locating the right history

Sometimes I laugh when I’m nervous
It’s not uncommon
We both know it
Why would you make me say it?
Why would you be so cruel?

We can’t get through this with
One kind of thinking

The cars pass by outside
Like waves in the ocean
From a beach that is moving
From side to side

A cat is keeping time in the kitchen
Wirh her eyes

Car monkey sandwich hats…Thursday / November 6, 2014 #SchwervonPoetry

Let’s hear it for the students 
The future is theirs 
The past is their’s 
They walk in green fields
They step on dogs 
And squeeze their shits out
They walk through it 

Let’s here it for the nut jobs
The present is theirs 
Never letting go 
Of the child inside
The happy sadness
The neck microphones
The plants and the hair

Lightening hits you in the face
It leaves a mark
I wake and kiss your teeth

Last night I dreamed
Everyone I spoke to 
Was trying to get me
To say the word: “Why?”
 I didn’t get it. 
I left feeling confused and embarrassed 

Wilst du tanzen? 
Warum nicht?

Take a look in the bathroom mirror. 
Will today be the last shave? 

It’s not hard to see why
People once thought
The clouds were heaven. 
It’s not hard to see the power 
In bears. 
But a duck is an extraordinary 
Car monkey sandwich hats
Pillow socks with electric smiles 
Trees tha cry 
and the rocks who love them

All the impossible things 
we can imagine. 
Just before breakfast 

It’s beautiful 
You are beautiful.
