the marked voices of the villains

Standard


green street lights
      red corners
        floor
      beaten

      by the daunting speeds

      of dogs running to

  paint        slander illustrations

      with strokes and splotches
      satisfyingly leaving no
      voice un-marked
      and all villain

large trucks crashing

Standard


the kings of the dragons have come
  to
  claim their prize
they’ve been eatin twisted guardrails, twisted

by large trucks crashing off the road


scary sounds leftover
      from 2 weeks of vehement work
it doesn’t matter where the directions
come from: “I got ya, I got ya”
that’s what everybody was sayin

but two weeks on the river
didn’t change the pattern of
seering, slamming, scoffing, and rattling
by the starring eyes of the steely kings

and we all were falling over
but some had worn helmets and survived
but afraid and dumb
    when all was
finished in the game
  between checks and balances

then everything went quiet
and the horses fell too

shoot, man, I know a lot of famous people

Standard


I grew up with Al Pacino !
in a western village in southern Florida,
right off the panhandle border with Georgia,

and me and Buddy Baker are always getting
our hair cut together. Buddy’s insisting to the
barber to always use my style as a template for his own hair.

That’s about it really.    … (?) …     actually:

in El Paso, Tx back in 1964, Robin Williams and I
befriended one another for that one summer. He was already
funny.

and Dick Wolf, producer of Law and Order, worked on
a screenplay with me in Mrs. Phillips’ 3rd grade
social studies class. To be honest, if you wanna know,
he didn’t really have the touch yet, but he had a
good work ethic;

Leonard Nemoy came over to my house a couple
of times,

Sandra Bullock – this is pretty kool – and her date
and I and my date doubled for our high school prom.
Her boyfriend was not very polite to her. So after the
dance me and Sandra did it in my truck, and uploaded
the pictures to wikipedia. Search for ‘Sandra Bullock prom’.

I can’t think of anymore.

Bain St.

Standard


death be down on Bain St.
 surprisingly.   but,  the people
eat cheese.
they tell each other that
the streets
they should be cleaned.

if you walk by, they will look at you
if I walk by, they may look towards my way

and say what completes
the statement that they
were
already making
