There once was a royal astronomer

Who married an orthobionomer

While doing Phase Seven

He floated to heaven

But came down to earth as a commoner.

A muscle quadratus lumborum
Belonged to a physical quorum
But the day it got tight
The others took fright
And declared its decorum deplorum.

Happy birthday Charles Darwin.

Happy birthday Abraham Lincoln.

Happy birthday Arthur Lincoln Pauls.

Super Bowl in the room,

An invitation could not be refused

From our Kansas City gal.


Third down in three strengthen my folders

[‘folders’ brought to you by autocorrect]

They’ve got to force some field goals.




Compete with my dreams of hybridity.

Thickness and upsurge

A lake of bromeliads climb growing

Up the moss-scaled palm

a pubic toupee

Generative patience . . . .


Wait! I can erase my exes?

Erasures and palimpsests

Disrupting discontinuities


Coffee table interruption:

Is liberalism worth saving?

Im thinking maybe not

We can do far better


If they can’t come up with a clear answer

This play will stand


You can’t find a difference between these two


. . . on the field for 8 minutes


Its a lot of time for Patrick Mahomes


Now look at all the things excluded from the page that . . .

[E.g. the chili   but ––oops––there i’ts in

Good and in]

. . make this a text (and the text keeping time)

What’s being said carved from the block of not being seen/said

Is the World wider than the Word? Or does the Word include

All that is not said?


The ‘crowd’ cheers      the ‘crowd’ moans


Please set the game clock to 5:55


The challenge flag is down


What is the challenge/

What would you say Mr Darwin’


What would you say Mr Lincoln?


What would you say Dr Pauls?


[stop being cute]


The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

I am I and my circumstance;

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                       —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

Changing the Conversation

I was born. I am always a vessel for something other than myself. The self is only a

vehicle for Foreign matter which comes from elsewhere and is destined to go on

elsewhere without me, whether it's words, smells, vision                                                      ––EMANUELE COCCIA  Metamorphoses

The Story Teller

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics,  clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.

      —JEANETTE WINTERSON                Gut Symmetries

What you do, what you become, is not my concern.                      ROBERT MCCALL



Yes, there is beauty

There is love

There is joy.

All you who suffer from

the world's miseries

Defend them.
