On the Strings of Gravity (More Short Poems)

The Blight of Poetry-

Like a pulled tooth

Chapped lips and a hole in 
The sole

A tee shirt 
That reads Add Verse

Double crossing hexameters
(Whatever those are)

And me
Baffled hair
Writing it all down


For Walt- 

The sea
Is all of our names
Without being any of them.


My Favorite Novel-

On the chalk board
Two dimensional windmills

And Quixote 
With a barber’s bowl
For wings 


Film Critic-

Kung Fu Hustle
Is the true spiritual
Sequel of the Matrix 


Lollygagging- 

Electromagnetic fields
To stand in. And then there’s mass. Not to be 
Confused with weight. 

What was said
Spoke of beginnings, 

The cowlick birds
Holler on the strings of gravity. 


A Stone on a Pillow-

You establish it is 
Windy

By opening a window

By solving some math problems
In a notebook

Feeding the birds

By the look of the city roofs

And no matter how far you walk
