Gort Takes a Sick Day

Gort Takes a Sick Day

Gort Takes a Sick Day (2008)

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

After a bitter unseasoned vegetable
dish the vet took

two shots to the torso. Radishes bled
like chopped up bolts.

Reparation lawyers beamed down.
Off switch or soup?


Image initially made with Fractal Zplot. Post-processed until every tank in the world glowed before disappearing. Text is a "Google poem" collaged together from search strings of the phrase gort takes a sick day.

Teething Ring

Beneath a triangulated mobile
Mocking oranges, reds and blues,
My child, already behind bars,
Registers justice by the wind,

By how light goes in and out of focus
In a fractal universe, where touch
Milks flesh of all resilience
And silence smells identity --

Though little silence here, where help-
Lessness spasms & clenches to divide
Nightmares from the real
Sand from solid blocks of blood.
