canary, canary,
the whole blue planet
is your coal mine
whose air is sanity.

why have you stopped
singing? why do you
lie in the green boughs
with your darting eyes
closed tight?

insane canary,
why are you
made of air?

Hunchbach (redux)

it seemed to him at last
that many of the citizens
may have unwittingly settled
on a form of mutant
or 'libidinal investment'
in the various sad
primate ideologies
which had long confused
the ancient bacterial
civicolonial assemblage
lineages of their isolated
and cosmic bodies

you can easily imagine
wearing a bovine pelvis
for a helmet
and mistaking a pop song
for your lover's embrace

are insane and aging

they give thee a tree

The Tower of the Seven Hunchbacks

there was a sneak peak
of the pulsar plesio centaur romans

elephantine architectonic laurels

the keynote of a weird conceit

whose forsaken city still crowns

Emperor Gordian III
begins a campaign
against king Shapur I

the Greek philosopher Plotinus
joins him and hopes to obtain
first-hand knowledge
of Persian and Indian


the Persians fought back fiercely
to halt the Roman advance to Ctesiphon
Persian sources claim that a battle
occurred (Battle of Misiche)
near modern Fallujah (Iraq)
and resulted in a major Roman defeat
and the death of Gordian III

Roman sources do not mention
this battle and suggest that Gordian
died far away from Misiche, at Zaitha
Modern scholarship does not unanimously
accept this course of the events

One view holds that Gordian died at Zaitha,
murdered by his own frustrated army
Other scholars have concluded
that Gordian died in battle
against the Sassanids


According to ancient tradition,
in 333 BCE Alexander the Great
cut (or otherwise unfastened)
the Gordian Knot: this intricate knot
joined the yoke to the pole
of a Phrygian wagon that stood
on the acropolis of the city
The wagon was associated with Midas
or Gordias (or both), and was connected
with the dynasty's rise to power
A local prophecy had decreed that
whoever could loosen the knot
was destined to become
the ruler of Asia

There are many, and often contradictory,
legends about the most ancient King Midas

Herodotus referred to a wild rose garden
at the foot of Mount Bermion as
the garden of Midas, son of Gordias,
where roses grew of themselves,
each bearing sixty blossoms
and of surpassing fragrance


According to Aristotle, legend held
that Midas died of starvation as a result
of his "vain prayer" for the golden touch

According to Plotinus, there is
an ancient Persian saying:

a poem is a knot
which eats golden roses


believe nothing
until it has been
officially denied


these poems
by the fate of some complexity
are the haunting of me
by the haunting of you
by the haunting
of this universal excess
which is in fact a dream
which does not exist
except when it chooses
to accept the poetic
as the absolute
and the absolution
of the confusion
between the fate
and the faith
of the molecular
it is

glimmery in farce (the rhyme)

even pretty furlow
the sign of sun at the cross combustion
the setting of a scene there
before the mythic arcadia

time set before all of time
its actor's aside
ophelia disputes the sun as arrow
the father's warning
and the brother's simple earthing
as all audience become

emptiness forbidden
the lobby of the castle
it does not speak
and thus commences

what help
in mad with love
engraves the arras
its altar medium

day ceases fussing
its orb qualms spiaggiare
even pretty furlow
as sun for time
and time for ophelia
replacing at anther

which both led to audience
and away from the sign
sincero alternating
from around
and through between

the whole whale as thought
having beached itself in head
in form takes a boundary
as the needle takes thread

the sun is paved in warts
orb particles
as the arts invest in a cortical
parting hale in what
is the job of another
its poles to lend
melancholy atmospheres
of elegy

junior bosch entrée

joe stonecrab
meets the martian pineapple
is the asterix a star
or an anus from which emerges
the martian pineapple

dandelions are like rafts
in the soup
the heavy rods and cylinders
radiate indigenous folktales
constructed of purple metal
covered in yellow hooks
upon which retired people perch
fondling the fruit
as if it were 1888

joe stonecrab closed the sweatshop
from guilt and to concentrate
on his collection of flowers
which grew in a lively pasture
in a vast expanse
of red brick soil

the social life of the community
revolved around the hotels
and parks
people dressed as chess pieces
would meet daily
at the deconstructed delicatessens
which had been distributed among
the line frame beaches
performed by the yellow stamens
and black strings
in which the bees moved
magically ordaining their
heavy dandelion crowns
polished in the red light
of the dark room

martian pineapples
open up on the patio
to reveal their rows of cameras
in which gleason and jerry
destroyed their satin bred jordans
mimicking the local songs
about the great bondage
which gathers in little cans

joe stonecrab played chess
in the clouds
which were senior citizens
and the stories they told
had found a body on the beach
which they moved to the park
to live inside the tattooed van
which had become the center
of community life

art brut is a candle
which is also a beautiful apartment
where all are welcome
in the whirringwheels of the sun
which is usually there doing maintenance
on its chain driven wagon
the "noisemaker"

enjoying its future
and blowing its paper horn
neon glass portraits
can be made of different people
in order to be completely serious
in the presence of the hot chrome microphone
whose radiant aura
bounces strangely off the ornate surfaces
of the storage warehouse
which is recommended heartily
by the survivors
of the ancient sea
of yellow leather chairs
lost in the bamboo
of laughter

the right to enter or join
a particular sphere
loves all color
by the appetizers
the cables that led from the gloves
to plugs on the desk

the romulus corporation
which built the box
and inside the box
there was nothing to do

the silence of telephus
lives in a nice neighborhood
making signs to those who ask questions
presumably too intent on eating
to converse

through bowed horns
the trees seem lost
in contemplation
of the velvet-ribbed lamps
constructed of thyrsi
and rudders
