MX-du Renga #2

funky stinkin' goat
makes the break for the pokeberry
purple mouth and fur

some folks cook pokeweed in pots
vinegar calming the taste

where the kitchen soothes
to understand its meaning
an apron's worn space

curving the waist of love dirt
filling emptying the sink

dishes stack three high
sunday morning quick clean-up
for scrambled egg pan

bloody mary celery
eases sunday to monday

greeting the morning
seven directions calling
days fill in my void

monday means work time mindframe
friday kicks in recklessness

waking and living
picking the food from chaos
can't cut what we use

the wholeness is the whole thing
and orbits are a constant

shot pool at orbitz
kids who were high school stars felt

with the eight ball that gleaned
the felted path to pocket

snortin' rails and lines
my pockets turn inside out
sharing and it's gone

selfish minds sharing lines last
as long as money's easy

giving way to stars
what you are seeing right now
passed to past long gone

lightning zip zap flash anse
stand right now scream like lupo

superheroes dance
bright colors flash like spent bulbs
old worn underoos

pictures steal souls say old drunks
whose heritage is diseased
