They Live

They Live

They Live (2010)


Sunglasses wake me
up. Aliens dig science fiction
without ever knowing
they live it. I have questions
about the life span of certain sperm
and how the Duggars
raise 20 mouths in a recession
and why Facebook needs a remake
like every vampire retread either
glitters or lusts. Malware
laced spam scares me more than you
screening your black comedy
with X-ray vision from the future
or another smash up near some traffic
island or spaceport. I’m alone
without multiple siblings
or a reality show about me and mine
or a private planet bearing my name
or more sour children resembling another
man from somewhere far far away
who telepathically substantiates
reaching for the stars hurts.

Admiral Byrd

Admiral Byrd

Admiral Byrd (2010)


Talk about
snowblind. Say that land
beyond the pole
like you mean it Mister.

Head out
with huskies and secret
diaries. Why Anarctica? Spacemen
or Nazis

probably ponder skeptics. Obviously
discovery is a dying problem.

Colonel Kurtz

Colonel Kurtz

Colonel Kurtz (2010)


Kill Eliot rubbing
your head and reciting his poem. You're neither.
Your navy patrol boat watched a snail crawl
up a similar river. Join Facebook
to kill Mistah Kurtz. Apocalypse no
accident. Back in Saigon Brando reflects
on the Edwardian era. You have
no right to call me a metaphor when your shirts
are designed by machetes. Are my dark hearts
unsound? Unfriend them. Pig
after pig like
Admiral Cane. My son
might not understand this poet-
warrior thing or terminating my command
with errand boys of extreme horror and a pile
of little arms in the form of gardenias.

Palace Audience

Palace Audience

Palace Audience (2010)


The commoners
hold a ransom letter. The shogun
works for the NEA. Funding
becomes more like criticism and the audience
hears you yell

fire. Simplify your life
said Thoreau in the woods alone.
No one came to see him
as wanting an iPad or needing a stay
of execution.

Camp Prosperity

Camp Prosperity

Camp Prosperity (2010)

[Click on the image above to see the view with binoculars.]


Where the lakes have names
after looting, go. Turn on
the fireplaces

in the desert. I never
bought that Dorian Gray shit.
Search my vehicle

near the green zone court
for basketball. I can see
smoke from somewhere

this summer. USO
and new picnic shelters beat
patrol. Probably

we won. I range walk
with some Indiana Jones
Russians. Can you see

reintegration
live or just Saddam's shoddy
construction? Write me.

Reentry

Reentry

Reentry (2010)


Atmospheric reintegration
they say. You are human-made
and come with consequences. A small
local region within the heart,

between atria and ventricles,
assists adults. Try California after
prison. So much more space
and fervent video of previous abuse.

Gill Man Adapts

Gill Man Adapts

Gill Man Adapts (2010)


The creature,
a very child, unsound in Florida
surroundings, product of a one-parent
household, fluidity programs,
twelve gods trademarked as ideology.

Will it end
unreasonably? A disease of the scalp
spreads. Soon, to be polite,
he wheezes, displaces water for air,
breathes only through his mouth.

Sassy (1993-2010)


Sassy was many things, including an in-studio companion. She saw many of my images come into being from the vantage point of my lap.
