Poetry; Where Pigeons Dare

A gospel space
an aching mouth dehydrated of sun
but clear as rain pastored air.

The sleeping hand of another hard-
luck god heavy as a feather
and awkward as footsteps

in sand. Another mortar sighs tactless,
and pinches horizon line
to twilight pink and crying.

*

People are not so far removed
from their bed spreads. Falling asleep
upside down and so so loudly -- that thinness.
Day dreams falling
down the stairs; trees
a rusting dumpster. This time of year
is a boring heart beat.

*

The poet enjoys a vodka tonic at Edinburg Castle
while watching a garage
band. He considers lyrics. He considers no one
else considers lyrics.

He considers the eye shadow on the girl
working behind the bar
a foggy August
sunrise off the coast of Maine.

Someone should write that down
on a napkin and slip it to her. Make it happen,
y’know? or blow out
the birthday candles.

*

Toothpicks on fire
may be the best way to put it. Look
directly at the sun until the clouds turn
all loosely stitched paper
plates. There will be apples drawn.
Dollar bills crumpled and painted
into the fence posts. Dollar bills
as thin as the music
we exchange them for.

*

Everyone is a rock star
in the San Francisco saturday
night. The poet enjoys rock and roll.
Everyone enjoys rock
and roll. The singers mustache
is trimmed to add
some blue collar to his $200
shirt. He and the poet
are both dressed up; only the poet
has nowhere to go. Amber fields
graying a youth bonfire
with vague values.
America is a gut feeling.

*

There is typeface behind the playing
card sky. Dinner
a checkerboard of cigarette smoke
just below the poverty line. Broken
mugs across the floor
don’t matter
without milk or juice,
and wine can be drunk
from the bottle. Sobriety
hung from belt loops.

*

Dance bare ankled
in the intersections where
asphalt meets
dirt. The poet doesn’t
dance, he muses. No one
considers the poet. He is just
another handlebar mustacheless guy
remembering he was Frank O’Hara
in a previous life.

*

Someday driving sleeveless
(pencil shade teeth and clouds)

down a quiet spent highway
small in the turning hills.

Drumming dry gin December on
the steering wheel, nothing,

breathing, simple the ocean’s hairless
arms. Faces somewhere, humble,

wandering hipless
little writing
on the lonesome dashboard.

On matters of co-equal branches of government;

There's a reason that Congress appears in the Constitution before either the executive or judicial branches, and that's because the founding fathers designed it to be the most important branch of government. President Bush said today he doesn't feel required to adhere to the laws that Congress passes and he signs. Neo-Cons, apparently, believe the founding fathers were living in a pre-9/11 mentality.

Jack Abramhoff's slime goes all the way up to Ken Mehlman and President Bush

On matters sports;

The NFL owners and Players Union agreed on a new CBA today. If anyone cares, it means I can exhale. It also means I'll have something to do during the fall of 2008.

In World Baseball Classic news, the US team lost to the Canadian team. Team Canada, by the by, led by a second baseman by the name of Stubby Clapp.

Stubby. Clapp.

Subject: This bike is a pipe bomb

Body: ATHENS, Ohio -- Authorities in Athens said that they
were investigating a mountain bike that put the Ohio
University campus on high alert Thursday morning.

Athens Acting Fire Chief Ken Gilbraith said that the
bike had a sticker on it that said, "This bike is a
pipe bomb." He said the university police discovered
it overnight, parked outside a campus restaurant.

(For those who don't know...there is a band called
"This bike is a pipe bomb")

OU closed four buildings, police blocked streets
around the Oasis restaurant, the fire department
brought in off-duty firefighters, and the Columbus
fire department's bomb squad was called in.

Gilbraith said the bomb experts attacked the bike with
a high-pressure spray of water, then pried it open
with a hydraulic tool and found no bomb inside.

The university remained in session throughout the
incident. The four buildings were reopened by 9 a.m.

A fan of this bike is a pipe bomb who sported the
band's sticker on his bike in athens, ohio is in way
big trouble...

Apparently, after leaving his bike parked on the
street, he returned to find a bomb squad and
handcuffs. He was told that because of the sticker on
his bike he was a threat and accused of being a
bombing terrorist...

SO THIS IS WHERE HE NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!!!!!

IF YOU KNOW OF ANYONE WITH THE SAME STICKER ON THEIR
BIKE, TAKE A PICTURE OF IT AND SEND IT TO
thruhiker@riseup.net

THIS GUY NEEDS HELP PROVING THAT THIS STICKER IS
MERELY A BAND STICKER AND NOT A BOMB THREAT

PLEASE REPOST THIS BECAUSE IF HE LOSES THE INITIAL
TRIAL IT WILL COST HIM OVER 10,000 DOLLARS AND
POTENTIALLY HIS FREEDOM

AGAIN thruhiker@riseup.net - or you can send it to
