stacking the sundeckA Poem by Nobody.
on the rabid red sundeck at noon,
slurped a few neon green popsicle puddles
with a crow haired amateur illusionist
I’d met at my adrenaline junkies
anonymous meeting last week.
her miraculous constitution shimmered
like an oily hallelujah beneath
the devil’s own heat lamp.
my beached noodle looked more
like a piece of dry grilled chicken
that had errantly fallen into
the steamy steak tub
at the Happy Warrior Buffet,
but, I figured that, through practice
and dedication, she could, eventually
turn me into some-sexy-monster
long enough to fire the rusty cannon
one more round!
she was squawking dented dirges about a schizoid dove
eating a white rabbit inside of her purple top hat,
but I was too busy ogling a sugar cube-
sized trickle of salty yumminess
slowly swimming the length of her Promise Land.
then the moment grew horns.
this rose was actually about to bloom!
felt the dream demon giggle in my belly.
thoughts swung hard, from green M&Ms
to red air raid sirens in a matter of shallow breaths.
thank the ghost of John Wheeler
I wasn’t the only unstable jar of chemicals
on that sizzling shelf.
manic silence fell like Aphrodite’s golden panties.
soft hazel eyes turned to malachite aflame.
and tore the flesh from one another’s drumsticks
right there in our private spotlight.
after our healthy psychosexual fireworks fiesta,
she limped back to her den
for a beer buzz baptism &
some shallow fried Eucharist.
and, here I am,
joyfully stagger-crawling my grateful corpse
back to cave 107 to reconfigure my wiggly cells
and, if I can find the gumption,
call everyone I know to tell them
that my wounded pet tiger
whom I’ve been mourning for half a month
still has a drumbeat left
to his dusty symphony.
best day off I’ve had since
that novice blond bullfrog surgeon
put the hop back in my ribbit
just wish I were a better pleasure hunter.
need more wild love, and less tame aggravation.
perhaps I should join a congregation;
heard those sweaty church people hump like dragons
and talk like stones.
“see you in Hell boys!”
