This face in a black light haze
when the street light shades pulled tight
to the window pane
we froze from the rush and attack
synth tone from the back room
soup with a wax spoon

“Too soon.” said the dead to the joke
when he’s framing the wheel
when the bicycle spoke

Run with the pack
get left in the back
with a fang in your kneecap
I’ll laugh with a knee-slap

Jelly on the plate like a salisbury steak

Poisoned soy sauce
pass the hoisin

Repeat say please
say peace
Fig Newton my soul in a cake or a roll
bound to escape or at least make parole
when I’m drowning in coffee you’re reading your scroll

Ride on my Falcor with Calgary Flames logo
on his matte white mustache grease

Funny how a guy tries Tae Kwon Doe
just to get knuckle busted with
his eyes wide closed

Plantain brand-name amscray lame brain

Butter in the briefcase

Cop another lambchop

Michael Jackstone in Bedrock

Mix cement in a pelican

Hold on tight

Match point

Bearded man blues
he escaped from the side show

Eyes closed
not smart with the rifle
but aim straight from the tower
slick with a bible

Prime numerals flash the dash
in my Subaru
no stash in the ash
no cash cause I’m beautiful

Fate scrapes jaws over fake meat
I won’t pause for applause from the dank seats
stained with the turtleneck tissue that’s painted
gold or a coral in the hole with a blanket

Faces in the crowd where crowns made of brown bags
unknown comics make salary
no name tags
first rap act on The Gong Show
I walk slow up to the stage
wear a sweater and a dog nose
