My dinosaur tumor lover drinking merlot on the lower level while the crows cry
Wild boy flew past winter
Hear your glow forever
Remember the stinging
The palm trees look dry
Rub yourself with the leaves from a palm tree and the next 3 of kin above you in the
family tree vanish without a trace from having ever existed.
What you do with a razor strap is a pretty thing
Dripping blood from the nape of your delicate neck
On the bath rug
The orange blast
Where you once where
Dear Black river,
Leaving a cheap, wrecked body watching the shotgun choking back
Omniscient as the blank eyes of the blue world
The strange and the beautiful days I spent as a fugitive in Phoenix
Mosquito taco and elsewhere
Standing there in her tight pink dress, stabbed, next to the taco stand
She asked me if I would buy her an enchilada with bright red refried beans and a corona
with lime
To suck the hell from her little exposed and underused nipples like honey from a sugar
Tits from heaven and tiers from hell
Sorrow of the ripe fruit succulent and moist going down like forbidden fruit
There in Arizona for the first time
under cactus juice
and palm trees scared.
I was scared.
And sometimes,
I still am.
