The city of Berkeley
Is replacing the street lights
With LED lights
Slowly but surely
I can no longer locate my heart.
They’ve done our block
so tree shadows
where the leaves let the light thru
now pixelate that
misnomer
further
it’s a tinsel
a clot
of jangled everywhere
where it once beat
is a…

a major
a career path

a car
a route

from the sandwich board
of possible sandwiches
choose a side
of bacon or sausage
or sub in fruit
choose to call in sick
or take a personal day
or claim jury duty

POEM FOR TODDLERS & REGGAE FANS & KITSCH PARTY PLANNERS

Let’s start from the end.

Bend it like Beck. Grass stain our pantsuits.

Sing it while we wash windows.

Mix sugar in with our meds.

Hark! Birds are tying bows in my hair! Ahem.

Or did I mean Amen?

If there’s no ashtray

There’s no consolidated pile of regret.
Limbo has just as many bad connotations

But what about the party game

Where you dance below an ever lower stick?

Why aren’t we doing that more often?

Blah blah blah

The sky

the world

the job

the social scene sink hole

even the sink

a problem

because it needs to be cleaned.

Didn’t mean to a downer

Mooooooo

Cow

But I’ve arranged a meeting between

Mr. Brown & Mr. Black who came back

And Mr. Brown

Who rides around town in a coffin,

And I think you’ll be pleased to know:

We’re bringing limbo back!

Oh I don’t know. Let’s just get old.

It’s so beyond belief
It’s catching.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

I’ve been staring at this for a long time and I keep getting angrier and just think about how great it would be if someone would have run up and smashed him in the face with a bat.

you have the right not to be killed
murder is a crime !!
unless it was done by a policeman or aristocrat

you have the right to free speech
as long as you’re not
dumb enough to actually try it
