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 HOST was wild in his exalt:

“…at this house we don’t close the curtains and close all doors with bolts to keep passage preveNTED! at this house we wave out the evident windows at people who pass by   and if they don’t wave back we drop our pants and show them our rears; at this house we have Sunday dinners with pleasantries; but we can puke in the centers of floors if we want to, and all gather around the pile and dance to its possibilities … because it don’t matter enough to do otherwise.”

But, frankly, his party wasn’t so good.

let the countries fight

Standard


“du fruit in la treat?
ahh cafe du monde mademoiselle”

a bunch of french people, sitting at their table,
looked over with berets in their eyes
unwilling to stand for the Texan’s mockery of
their language, their culture, philosophy and other junk
that makes a people a people

the Texan killed the french people and took over
the south western portion of the country that
had, until just now, belonged only to whoever lived there
