It’s eleven a.m.
I’m in yesterday’s slip
And I awake to the sound of the dog licking his lips

He’s in the room
At the edge of the bed
With an unobstructed view of my delectable head

I follow his stare
Which travels down my hips
His stomach churns and his saliva drips

Suffice it to say
If he's not swiftly fed
Yours truly here will soon be dead

I drive way too fast
to worry about a low carb diet.

Vodka kills germs lickety-split,

Vodka claims a great benefit:
Vodka kills germs lickety-split,
But, alas, I've no proof of this
Since I can't get germs to drink it.

lickety split
wolf spirit aka quinfinn

those little laugh crinkles
around your nose
those tiny white hairs
upon your toes
the way you emerge
still dripping wet
fresh out of the tub
(you make me sweat)
the way your panties
never quite fit
makes me hot and hungry
lickety split
my passion,
never truly fed
until we bring
our dreams to bed
i love you more
than life itself
if i play Santa
will you be my elf?

Then, whole-house clean-up, “Lickety-split!”

Sighing deeply into Omi’s embrace
Like a thimble replaced in a sewing kit,
Her permanent warmth that can’t be erased.

A doily made of cream coloured lace,
Her set of values is tightly knit,
Sighing deeply into Omi’s embrace.

She makes extra stroganoff, just in case,
Then, whole-house clean-up, “Lickety-split!”
Her permanent warmth that can’t be erased.

My sister and I in a hiding place,
And nothing of our plums left but the pit.
Sighing deeply into Omi’s embrace.

The whole rainbow neatly interlaced,
In Omi’s garden, her butterflies flit,
Her permanent warmth that can’t be erased.

That pair of blue sweat pants we couldn’t replace
Because no other pair will ever quite fit.
Sighing deeply into Omi’s embrace,
Her permanent warmth that can’t be erased.

Sometimes I reside in the other
Not necessarily experimenting
Maybe a bug buzzing about
Try bit computing
My harebrained ways
An elsewhere poking
about, random light
bounce, flip,
And I
chunk out you
wiggling,
lickety-split
I am a ball; you are a ball
what is love doing?
what is life doing?
the medium imports true
obviously multiples of you
and me's
So what sets the process of
the heart and this thing, love?
Something is pointing at the
Lazy Susan's dirty panties
on the table and
I'm picking leaves, smelling
trees, and knowing a fortune
cookie
will not grant dreams, I am
a ball; you are a ball
A dream spinning out into
nothing, irreversible

lockets lickety locked and
Gian Torrano Jacobs

we stumbled
in tattered coats
past shattered windows
in bob-bobbing boats
on creaky rotting docks
over sneaky sharp rickety rocks
with throbbing throats
lockets lickety locked and
pockets purposely blocked but your
mouth is a wide open
crock -
a pot of dribbling bullshit
nonstop drip-drop
dripping droplets devoid of thought
from the chin of your
head -
heavy enough to bring everyone down but inflated enough to keep you floating in the clouds
where the crowds
look like ants with
crushed cans and can'ts
and you can't tell if
I'm alive or dead
but you don't give a fuck
and now you're shit out of luck you
tiptoe on egg shells of
glass ' shattered spells

and I can smell a rat from a mile away but apparently I won't know a brat till they're under my skin and I can feel them crawling

flow of consciousness
Lickety split go out on the ropes,
Aeya Jean Johnson

I am just one fish in the sea,
And a fish out of water at that.
This whole situation,
This whole relationship
Is all Greek to me.
Although some things are a dime in a dozen,
Bring this back to square one for me.
I'm drawing a blank and
You might be barking up the wrong tree.
I'm purposefully beating around the bush,
And you are thinking of the elephant in the room.
I promise I'm not always a goody two-shoes;
I'll go for broke when I'm in a pickle.
The jig is up.
You're on a wild goose chase,
But what am I, chopped liver?
I know my part in this play is
The ugly duckling,
And I'm feeling a little under the weather,
I'm down for the count,
But keep your shirt on and knuckle down,
No ifs, ands, or buts.
Lickety split go out on the ropes,
and I'll put a sock in it if
You quit playing possum.
I'm trying hard not to rain on your party,
But right off the bat,
Doesn't this ring any bells?

Tough it out 'cause there's
Two down, one to go.
