the human body is pretty cool.
especially if you pay attention
to it, have payed attention to it.

funny what a little 'base' can do.
just the slightest hint gives you
that oomph to giddy up on out
of slum tempo slotting in. get on
up there and run w/ them dogs
into that blurred fringe world.

Pretty cool what just a handful
of hour plus Carlisle townie fitness
path spinny spins on the Jabber
can do. Just get out and ride the
bike. No kit worries, low prep
round town spinnin'. Tie the
laces, roll the pant leg and
find the gloves. Out the door
easy as that.

Easy as that to enter back into
that interestingly ironic pain for
pleasure cave of not quite over
the head, instinctual floating
zombie head flow that comes
when the pieces fall into place.

Right place,
right time,
right people.

thanks everbody, felt
good to let that shit rip,
it's been awhile.

too long.

"It's very hard to live in a studio apartment in San Jose with a man learning to play the violin." That's what she told the police when she handed them the empty revolver.

Yes, the Fish Magic

A trout-colored wind blows
through my eyes, through my fingers,
and I remember how the trout
used to hide from the dinosaurs
when they came to drink at the river.
The trout hid in subways, castles
and automobiles. They waited patiently
for the dinosaurs to go away.
