    a tooth,
    a brass doorknob,
    and a length of strong string--
    the door flew off of its hinges
    bloody.

    bloody
    jubilate, joy
    dark deep ruddy scarlet
    lines trickled from wooden door knob
    chamber

    Chamber
    music plays so
    softly in the background,
    as day fades quietly into
    darkness.

    Darkness
    groaned, moaned, bellowed
    thunderous harmony
    created tear-jerking lyrics
    inky

    And on
    and ever, beat
    (growling, slack-jawed, and wild) –
    melding and riddled with base sweat.
    Music.

    Music
    swings, rolls, rocks, raps
    harmonious power
    turning darkness into daylight
    magic

    Magic
    fell in my lap.
    I practiced it for months
    until I broke my wand upon
    his head.

    Face it,
    your prime is past.
    The hands move toward the top;
    prepare for the midnight hour--
    we dance!

    We dance
    as electrons.
    Periodic tables
    turn as dawn comes, draws sleep, downy
    atoms.

    Atoms
    are myths made by
    teachers. Just like history
    was written by winners and maths:

    Garfield.
    Furry lover
    Of lasagna and sleep.
    Upon the newspapers you shed
    laughter.

    laughter:
    the exercise
    that shows your yellow teeth,
    that once had worms wiggling between.
    childhood...

    Hard won
    garden battle.
    Cabbage worms and rabbits
    banished— waiting until I turn
    my back.

    my back
    is smooth after
    a massage session with
    Malina, the mermaid of sea.
    soft hands.

    soft hands
    hard hearted man
    never done a day's work
    selling brain farts and writer's cramp
    Oh man

    O man
    Art not I thine
    Wrapping the twine that binds
    My hands to the posts of your lines
    Sublime

    Sublime,
    the nothingness.
    Sitting by Molly's Falls—
    the sound of the entire world is
    drowned out.

    When I was a kid they didn’t blare music during the Independence Day fireworks displays. I personally prefer the pops, whistles, booms, and crowd reaction. I think it started during the Bi-Centennial. (I was in Japan from 1975 to 1996, so I don't really know. I do know I don't like it.



    Drowned out—
    Martial music
    muffles the oohs and aahs
    from childhood memories watching
    fireworks

    fireworks--
    same explosions--
    temper and broken plates,
    shards of life hide in the corners.
    children.

    children
    running, jumping,
    cheerfully, happily
    from rooftops to peaked mountaintops
    playmates

    know the meaning
    of team work. holding hands
    they share prize, credit, and
    failure

    Failure—
    drought bare garden
    waiting to be tilled in.
    Three long months of hard work, now just
    worm food.

    Worm food
    fooled my brother;
    thought it was meant for him.
    This garden ain't no ice cream stand,
    Mud Pie.
