sense memory no. 1

suddenly the sweetness of some fruit
i can't recall. 
memory's mouth models peanut butter, avocado
spread thin onto toasted brown bread
and the saccharine spear implacable 
causes me to heave, breathe heavily 
in hopes of dislodging a pneumonic 
of seeds split and juice spit — an unmistakeable

a companion to '44. palmate antlers'

their horns clash
and felted dung
flung off in a chunk
a forgotten sacrament 
spills into soil.

"Change the habit & you change the man." [draft]

they're back on
the lights
and i want to speak to you
about the bathroom door
without mentioning the bathroom
but between us
you & me
i'm thinking about buying a new TV
maybe two
Stone Johnson fades
Stop thinking about it; you've paid your bills
I've had my fill
waking up
Everything are you hungry?
Ballers & Poets sweat in different ways
so... make your own connections
I won't do your homework for you

[don't look at the camera.]
