Show Poem: I’m taking A vacation from knowledge…Sat. May 25 / KC, MO / The Brick #Schwervonpoetry


I’m taking
A vacation from knowledge
I’m laughing at my own jokes
Sleeping by the fire
Dropping the bear bags
And napping before the show

Ordering the grilled cheese with turkey
Unsteady if the turkey with cheese

I’m Working the odd jobs
Taking candy for breakfast
Chew toys for lunch
I’m putting the world
in a soft flour Tortilla shelll

No creams no ointments
It’s so quiet here without the wires in

Skipping rocks
Jumping buildings
Stretching the fabric
With my bulbous fantastic
Perfect melon shaped buttocks

Let’s stretch the fabric
It doesn’t have to be smoky
Or drug like

We don’t have to remove our makeup
We just have to be willing
To smear a little lipstick

The gift of taking away

The gift of taking away
Is too powerful
Outside of poetry or pet world
It poisons the worm 
Clogs the needle

Grand gestures cling
To see what happens 

Ocean target practice
Just keep walking
Combing the beaches
Fur bullets in bottles 

All battles are cancer

The beeps of life
Electric bubbles
Vapor sighs

When the time comes it sings
a whisper

The lime in you mouth
The face on your teeth

If I must be a Buddah
To go on with you
Then so be it 

Our job is not to contribute To ancient history

Confetti bombs
Tree bark in our teeth 

We devoured our childhood
In the misty spotlight 

Our job is not to contribute
To ancient history

We hide behind blind luck
Compress and gate
Amplify and electrocute
For the schnitzel mind 

Held up
Surfing the crowd 

It’s a beatiful moment


I am prepared now For all the screaming children 

I am prepared now
For all the screaming children 

I know how
Sensitive the strings can be

What it is to club the rain
Wrap my arms around it 

I choose my gods every morning
Cookies, sun, baking soda and light
Today, this minute

Over and over
Never the same 

There are waffles in the streets
Protein falling from the sky 

Silver squirrel chases
on every corner
Free plastic bags 

I am developing strong
