I Sang My Body Electric

I dreamt of sapphire fire writhing
through the tinseled veins of my soul,
filled with glittering corpuscular data
motivating servo-mechanical musculature.
I spied my thoughts gathering
lightning from thundering clouds,
spinning the charges, weaving the matrix,
as I flew the broad massifs of my sparkling mind
and soared its high Yucatan mesas
on arc lit carbon fibered wings;
or when the various pathways
of galvanic emotion
and electronic intellect
converged by the riversides
in the valleys of my life,
I panted down to the darkling marshes
and stalked the evening shadows
as a composited sinewed Aztecan puma.
No matter my form; I sense I am aware I am alive and
that I sang my body electric.

a red letter day

after the dinner 
during the debate
words were spelled in blood
by sharpened quills as  
broken wedding jars 
spilled carmine wine 
holy water flowed across the table
he said
the blood is liquified
the spirit is a gas
the body is solidified

petros with a two-edged tongue 
licked the ear of a demon's servant
he said
the rolling stone gathers no prints
habeas corpus christie

from a latin wilderness 
the word was shouted
in blots of scarlet ink by
markos with a feathered-edged calamus 
thrust his opinion into yeshua's side
but he always minds as he tries
to dot his tees and cross his eyes
he said
the logos is plasmatically

Mr. E. Hess?

put your mountain beside your sea
and the sea outside your window
if you can and
if you really want to
put your money where your mouth is
where your name is your game
and never was his biz
but i bet you can't
put your monkey where your junkie is
where they pray in pearly temples
when they prey on shirley temples
if you really had it to do
if you really wanted to
put your sea beside your mountain
put your coin inside your fountain or
see the sea outside your window
thus if you could would you
be mysterious

for libby
