the thoughts of the modern man: a poem

floating through the air
like a million horses made of gold
flying on the sky
like the dreams of every man and child
that is where you'll find me

swimming in the ocean
saying hello to every fish
because they are my friends
fish are my only friends
in the ocean

no one knows where to find me
i guess i'll have to tell them
holy cow, i'll have to tell them
where to find me
where to find me

battery is good: a poem

battery is good
battery is my friend
battery is my frog-friend
when you play in the rain
you get wet

battery is nice
battery is badger friend
battery is mole and rat friend
when you play in the rain
you get wet

room: a poem

we are all stuck here in this room
there's the fat guy
and the boneless woman who made the weird noise with her head
and there's the garbage can
what am i supposed to say to that?

in the woods: a short sketch

in the woods
on one of my walks
you know, the ones i take every morning
i saw an oak tree
with very strong roots
and i thought,
that would make a great metaphor

checked spines: a poem

our checked spines hold us upright
we fly and sail
and voyage to the ends of the earth
so that we may find more checked spines
to hold things upright

an idyll: a poem

say, friend
walk with me to the grocery store
where we shall buy milk, and lettuce
and discuss things like

and i will lead you to happiness
through my homegrown wisdom
i write space fiction stories

blag ices: a poem

listen, my dog, be a real dog
be a happy dog
are you listening?
do you want the magic?
do you want the powers?

have the confidence, do it best!
all right!

gold stocks are too low: a poem

oil fields, oil wells
oils feels, oil's well
wood needed, gold needed
stone needed, wood needed

from the britons to the byzantines
oil feels and is well
from the celts to the saracens
oil feels and is well

from campania to lugdunum
from lugdunum to londinium
from londinium to sihnon
oil needed, gold needed

the song of lizards and frogs: a poem

lord of lizards
and of frogs
hear my prayer:
i want lizards and frogs
and i want them every day

not once a week
not once a month
not for special occasions
but every day

there are not enough lizards in the world
there are not enough frogs in the world
the world needs more of them
we need more of them
i need more of them
give us more of them

lizards, frogs
all day long
green and yellow, pleasant fellow
black and tan, my good man

the sky: a poem

when i was a young lad
i saw that the sky was blue
and thought
it is because the sky is filled
with blue fish

how foolish i was
so foolish
not to realize the truth
that it was because god made the sky
and blue is his favorite color

blorion: a poem

in the future,
there will be a city
a city called blorion

it will be amazing
it will be in space
it will be made of strong metals
and it will carry people...
across the galaxy

in the future,
the galaxy will be huge
and it will hold many cities
just like blorion

bumblebee valley: a poem

i once spent a year
traveling through bumblebee valley
each hour more grueling than the next
my confusion
my fear
oh, the fear
but then i finally found a gas station
and they gave me directions out of there
boy, am i glad that's over
