Mental Music

Eva asked, "You have
a photographic
memory?" "I don't

know," I said. "Bluebirds
are my favorite
aves. They can make
melodies that quake

my heart to weeping -- .
Spell your name from back
to front, add an "s",
and think of blue wings.

Sing, Eva, and you'll find
mind photography
unnecessary."

Counter Poems #10 - #12

Rick Farmer said, "keep
putting one boot in front
of the other." It's easier
to turn a boot than a rudder.


I'm from Oklahoma and Texas
where knives and guns
are as ubiquitous as chewing gum.
I couldn't care less about a Lexus.


When the Earth Shakes
bake bread, do what your
mama said, and wake
early. Brother's are a bore.
