fluted

Fluted memories of onion rings
rest within the orbit of Mercury before they
commence to consume the heads of prairie dogs.
The heads of deer float within a story
told by an old codger to God about
the only gift he failed to throw away.
The song we sang in the straw spaceships didn’t
help us evaporate and beatify the travel, and now
I can become one of the two houseflies that
devour a daybreak from the opposite ends.

  1. floating heads disembodied
    nothing but hair
    eyes nose a red hole of broken teeth
    fat tongue
    no body or limbs, a head
    floating towards
    metaphorical ice bergs, 15654 hands high
    seen from UFOs
    floating
    ebbing on liquid pulled by the moon,
    a hollow sphere controlled from down here

    standing at the edge of a continent

    • SAVING MONEY TO SEND YOU TO THE MOUNT HOLYOKE SEMINARY
      PRAYING THAT YOU WILL BUCKLE THAT INSECT SKIN
      AND SPRING FORTH MORE THAN AN ONION RING MAN
      “THE PRESSURES OF A REAL REVIVAL TO YOU, BROTHER”
      MAY GOD GRANT YOU A REORDERING OF YOUR THINKING
      FIRST STEP:
      STOP CONSUMING PRAIRIE DOG HEADS
      THROW AWAY METAPHORS FOR UNBELIEF
      SECOND STEP:
      DON’T TRY TO IMPRESS THE SPIRIT WORLD
      WITH FLOATING DEER HEADS
      ——–THE USE OF THE WORD, “CODGER”
      WAS A THUMBS UP
      CHUCKLES FROM THE ANCIENT SIDE OF THE CEMETERY
      COMING TO MATURITY WITH THE FORCE OF “CODGER”
      SPIRITUAL PIONEERING HAS NO NEED FOR STRAW-SHIPS
      THROW AWAY THAT JUNK AND PUT ON THE NEW SKIN
      ——AN INTELLECTUAL ADVENTURE SUIT——

    • 1) Aliens could spend centuries analyzing the problem of a hair in a soup

      2) Ancient chinese poets left their hair to the winds
      Or to the gumbo of new orleans musicians
      To professor longhair in particular

      3) The fish are going to hum charlie parker’s tunes
      When hoary moons will drink up the atlantic
