family: a poem

do you know where your family is?
grandpa's in the nursing home,
playing platelet bingo.
grandma's i don't know where.
nobody knows where.
nobody goes there.

so you guess, you say,
on the whole, no.

lake monster blues: a poem

is the sky blue
it's a serious question
you're just a lake monster
stuck in a world of weirds

color represents
sometimes doesn't
can't you tell the difference
i'm slipping, but it's not a metaphor

saw a picture of champ
all the proof you need
munch brunch or lunch
no one rides for free

robert finnegan: a poem

remember when you was young?
dad spent a long time trying to convince you
that a giant robot wasn't your friend.
you didn't listen, though,
and that's why you're here.

remember that time you laid down on the train tracks?
that was a bad idea,
but you didn't think so.
some ideas can be good
and bad at the same time.
learned that one in philosophy class.

carter billingham: a poem

hard to believe it, but that guy's
got a square pattern on his tie.
leaving the house in that state,
ignorant of his wrongdoing (fate
having long-ago doomed him to live
unaware), he'd assumed that the worst of
his problems would be the weather. there
was no way he could have known (again,
fate) the cosmic mistake he'd made or
how they'd end up taking it, the ones who
knew, the ones whose reasoning was right,
true, correct. the ones on whose opposite
end are the men on the street corners, who
spend all their time yelling about how god is furious with us and
satan is real.

the christmas miracle: a song

spending christmas with you, girl
spending christmas with you, girl
you know i'll always stay true, girl
i'm spending christmas with you, girl

candlelight
feels so right
ain't nobody
gonna stop us tonight

egg nog on the table
mmm, that's how i like it
ribs on a platter
mmm, that's how we like it

spending christmas with you, girl
spending christmas with you, girl
you know i'll always stay true, girl
when spending christmas with you, girl

santa claus coming
reindeer on the roof
do a magic trick
we disappear in a poof

now we're on a carpet
flying over china
girl, it's so romantic
girl, it's so divine-a

spending christmas with you, girl
spending christmas with you, girl
my favorite color is blue, girl
now your favorite color is blue, girl

through the power of christmas
we travel through time
see a woolly mammoth
life is so sublime

never coming home
traveling through history
everybody knows
christmas is a mystery

spending christmas with you, girl
spending christmas with you, girl
you know i'll always stay true, girl
time-travelling with you, girl
