Can you help me get out of here, please
please
             won't let me
leave

I don't understand why I am here, please
wheeze
              won't let me
breathe
Stretch the universe to fit
over your mind or genitalia
unless they're the same
then don't bother

Fit the cosmos to what comforts you
unless of course that's bathtub gin
You've just got to agree coming in
as going out is imaginary portrayal

of waves incongruent with themselves
crashing in the tank defined by our
coming in and reflecting upon fate
who laughs with popcorn

You guys good?
Lift your skirt a little
Show us a bit of what you've got
Under your vowels between your aspirations
and your imagination is not in these words is it
is it in these woods when we hear what we are
all are skittering about with some explanatory look
become explained away when the sound rains down
inside the cellular convulsion i'm poking about for

I am bringing darkness in vibration
glowering like microphone feedback
during a eulogy or the thoughts you have
for some people in this world, not some poets

A man trapped and playing his role
looks out from under your eyes or mine
asking

This current, this current must I follow it
on your imaginary shore, you wrestle
advise

Carried, decried, decidedly unwrapped
a burning sensation from unknown parts
advances

Just long enough to ask what's wrong
has moved on to more fertile land t han
about you

and follows it

Today, ok, right now
I, big I,
I feel happy

The a ngst is begging
the vibe is right
the night is quiet
and beauty has spoken
to me and laughed
such a sound
i'm waiting
for pictures
she promised
maybe

light accumulates this night
