The Time Has Come


The downsizing is over.  What remains is packed.  We’re shutting her down and hitting the road.

Executive Decision

I will
empty myself
of nail guns and jack-
hammers, spit up
buses, taxis
and concrete. I will
unplug from dumb
ass ads
for depression, from
drug hazed penis
dysfunction… I will
empty my head, heart
and soul

to nature’s abundance
of pure yellow-
to the fermented
wines of dandelion, pear and lemon
rind; to the sunflower fields
and marigolds; to pollen puddles
sweet and bold
as honey butter
on a waffle. I will spread

my arms in honor
of the sun; wade enthralled
a moon-lit pond, lay
like Adam with Eve
in a garden beneath
a dappled weave, I will bloom
with scenes
that garner and fetch
and miracles of the universe.
