Automatic writing #311

bible men see sinister signs 
– swarms of insects moving clouds

-floods in rural Arkansas

                    remember the Alamo 

     as Texas is washed away – 

– matchsticks men of Northern England 

walking tinder dampened by constant rain 

– no shadows on a sunless isle

    OTHER SOLDIERS STEP IN MUD
    I MANAGE TO STEP IN CONVENTIONALIZED MATERIAL
    ON EITHER SIDE—BUSHES OF MADNESS AND SUICIDE
    WADS OF TOILET TISSUE AND BANANA PEELS
    AS A MALE NARRATOR OF COMMENTS
    OR CONVERSATIONAL POETRY
    I DARE NOT STARE AT THE BUTTOCKS
    OF THE MAN IN FRONT OF ME
    SO HANDSOME AND ROUND
    PICTURESQUE IN ANY DICTIONARY
    ONE MUST HOLD TIGHT
    TO THEIR FASTIDIOUSNESS
    AND CAUTIOUS RESERVE
    ————————
    ————————
    MATCHSTICK MEN MARCHING
    EACH ONE TAUGHT AT AN EARLY AGE
    TO TURN ANY SITUATION TO PRURIENT ADVANTAGE
    *problematic prototypes are thrown in the river

      JUST THINK HOW MANY TIMES WE THREW
      CHARLIE ZERO IN THE RIVER
      POETS DOWNSTREAM WERE UPSET
      INDESCRIBABLE JOY UPSTREAM
      LIARS AND LUNATICS
      AND WOMEN WHO TAUGHT GRADE SCHOOL
      HUMANITY WITH ODD THUMBS
      BAD FRUIT FROM THOSE
      MATURING PRESSURES
      *trouble-makers in the world of poetry
      *no graceful simplicity in that society
