if the falling birds

Standard


it’s not tough when you
see the birds falling
from the blades: just try
hard to recall your provisions:
    in your package was two
    rations of MREs and a
    mission to solve unexpected
    challenges
and so you have it: your
mandate that can guide you
and your professional network
to peace: just solve the problems
as you encounter them. don’t bury
your guide because of political
affiliations, for you cannot boast that
you are an engineer if you are
really a worker guilded in agendas

megatropolis

Standard


megatropolis crump down hard upon
the garden, and smearing
blood and guts along the ally streets and
the main roads freshly warmed from
the millions of city busy good driving back and forth all
day long

the megatropolis is fracturing the building
using it’s left and wreaking havoc on
the buildings it stomps
breaking
glasses and chairs and doors and
buildings in general, and whipping it’s
tail undercutting the steel skyscrapers elec-
trically lit so nicely at night, metal shards everywhere, bright
orange lava flowing too, and girls
in bikinis dancing with hoola hoops

the plate that sat on the table

Standard


the plate that sat on the table
sat on the table with
three faces on its mind
    the art of sculpture
    the art of the brushing paint
    and the art of the written

oil lang low on a wall behind the tree
  the only tree in the room
where a contemporary clown in a classic
frame accents an accessorizing corner

count to four
rhyme with the word door
hear the brickcovered fireplaces
crackling in the evening more at estates
… … four…fivesixSevenEight

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

the value of alternative behaviors

Standard


… there’s going to be a prison in this dream. Refer to your textbooks and see it indexed under ‘p’ and get the pertinent info regarding prisons in dreams. Also, there is going to be a train in this dream so be sure: read up on the meanings of trains in dreams. Third, there will be freewill components in the main character’s decision matrix. Fourth, there will be the paradox of passionate struggle vs incapability on the part of narrator, the supporting character.

We will label the main character as F (female), and her supporting character will be P (penis). So P will go to escape his love, F, from prison. They will exit the prison yard via an openness, that is: the barricade around the prison has only 3 sides, whereas the fourth side is open. F will voice concern over exiting, but P will reassure her.

There will be a busy train depot adjacent to the open-sided prison yard. There will be a couple of prison guards on duty at the train depot. P and F will have some anxiety regarding their brazen act. There will be a train arriving that will be heading to a hometown, miles away. No guards notice F. No one notices F. Everyone is going about their business.

P will head to the ticket window, with F, holding her hand in tow. P will struggle with the confusing and complicated procedures involved in the ticket purchasing procedure … this is the incapability feature of his paradox. During his attention distraction, F will meander away from P and the crowd at the ticket window and voluntarily walk over to a prison guard, and turn herself in. P will see her in cuffs, being returned to prison.

how you see the vine and hear the sound

Standard


“cable, sir. cable”
(sir is eating smoot and his sweat is
  colored now grey and tanned from
  the farm and the party)

He actually handed the cable back to the boy
The cable could pull the progress, the contemporary
        solution

In Poland they ate bread w/ smoot
In Chechnya they eat bricks w/ dirt

The boy went ahead w/ his cable
though it would’ve been better if he were
    talking into the heads of a poker match
The power was never arranged
