UFOs spiral figure-8s around
pillars erected by watchful eyes
above a sheet of unwatchful worms
beneath a blanket of hyperwatchful stars
between a hyperlapse of comets eternal
faith isn't a constant,
god is the internet
I like the clear country nights .
Stars are countless points of light.
I once saw two red halos
Like wheels of fire in the sky.
Satan, in this drama,
the **** in my underwear
as I've been unable to
wash my clothes.
God, in this comedy,
angels in the form of us
homeless youth, blossoming
from the ashes of an
My mother, in this Sci fi,
a spaceship on the Mesa of
Arizona, to save Planet
Earth from your grimy hands.
This vending machine parking lot
near-death experience calling out
for coffee stained teeth and toothpaste-
covered pockets. Anyone in camo
pants may agree that surrender
is no option in the darkness.
Counter-intel these dispelled image
rats anticipating annihilating smells
of an **** gone wrong-- ecstasy para-
mounting on my wardrobe, *******
**** of a woman in flux, counting
on one hand the fists you put
inside AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL.
To Pharoah, Ceasar, us peasants belong
in trashcan garbage pail toilet ****,
maybe that's ok because the rich
IN SPIRIT give birth to the KINGDOM,
rain slowly washing away
Babylon and my cares for the things
of this world:
I only want you.
The New Mexico sky is alive,
redder than a child’s wagon on a dusty front lawn
and the stars blink like forgotten Christmas lightswhile constellations shift, dissatisfied with their placements, sending ripples through mythology with every new shape they make.
We have blankets and enough hope among us
to keep the morning star burning above the far hills—
I am flanked by mountainous profiles;
the crag of a nose, the devastating valley of a lip.
We are wondering if someone out there could read our thoughts
if someone would take an interest in what puts our bodies together.
Misguided, we gaze upward.
It’s crazy to believe we’re alone in the universe, someone says,
and I smile into my shoulder, considering,
of all things,
the starry unknown
between fingers and words.

We're treating our world
Like a retreating army:
The invaders won't survive.
Do people ever truly lose there mind or were they always ******* bat **** to begin with?
I believe half this earth is run by insane people most of which have way to much power and far to little sense .
The ******* radio is a great example ever listen modern music ?
You know that **** that doesn't require any talent to preform just a record player and some half wit to rap along with so you can have a remix yes country music is vile enough let alone throw in a nerd that would **** if he got his thirty thousand dollar sneakers ***** once are made in some sweatshop for ten cents a pop yeah how ******* fashionable .
And remember when you had to play a ******* instrument to have a record out?
Yeah I'm so old fashioned I mean sure kids wear all the shirts to half the bands I grew up with and have no ******* clue who the bands are but yes the world is ****** and you wonder why I drink.
Just like people who believe the world really gives a **** there having a bad day # who gives a **** Twitter is for ****** ***** and celebrities who have as much depth as a public toilet but are far less clean.
People always read me and believe I am this nice easy going goofy drunken ******* who only lives to make them laugh and talk about ******* well who doesn't like ******* there awesome.
Hey Gonz do you like kids ?
No I don't !
Cause they always annoy the **** out of me when I'm trying to sleep off a good ****** in the park really whatever happened to letting the TV raise them hey I look at me I didn't turn out so.
Umm well okay so I'm a little ****** up .
Hey do you ever get tired of being funny or find it hard to come up with new things to pick on?
Well just watch the evening news for a second and head down to the local bar or that gate of **** Wal-Mart and look at all those ******'s who believe they have to buy **** just cause its on sale yeah sure why not buy two hundred rolls of toilet paper cause you never know when the world may end and the zombie apocalypse will begin .
Newsflash when the world does cease to exist you probably will to and when your starving to death or being burned alive I really doubt that wiping your *** is going to be your top priority .
And we already live amongst zombies there called yuppies and those I phone twitter loving instagram ******* are ******* everywhere and driving while doing all this **** so pick your head up and watch out!!!
I recently was on a little road trip and while in Evansville Indiana as me and my head cheerleader were riding around the city late at night we were ran into by a young and brainless little **** who admitted she was texting and driving and as I sat there waiting for officer fat **** to arrive to give this cyber **** a ticket .
Yes Indiana it's slogan should be hey are you ******* lost?
Yeah I know I'm a real people person .
Anyways as I sat there viewing what looked like babe Ruth in a bullet proof vest hand out a ticket as he sweat out gravy I had to question with fifty lares of flesh for padding was there really a need for the vest?
They say when you go insane it's hard to truly rejoin society .
But honestly after looking at half the strung out loony toon's that are considered normal why the **** would you ever care to be part of there brain dead **** storm ?
And since when did the news care what was popular on ******* You tube?
Todays top stories the worlds on the verge of self destruction, A man kidnapped a child ***** her for several years has five kids with her but later on that right now let's check out this cute cat video.
yes the worlds obsessed with ***** .
And you thought it was just me.
And why do teachers now all **** there students and where were these horney ******* when I was going to school.
Yeah having to settle for a ******* from the janitor just wasn't the same.
Although he did have a fantastic grip I'm kidding.
And why do people even own TV's duh cause books are to much like work but hey remember to buy mine cause it has plenty of pictures yeah what isn't poetic about ****?
Yes I can imagine what the great writers from the past would think of the new bestsellers.
Who doesn't like books about *** *** wizards and **** vampires that glimmer in the light yeah I didn't read it duh I saw the movie *******
yeah you may laugh but whatever got my sixteen year old girlfriend in the mood was alright by me I'm kidding again she was twenty one at the time least that's what her fake Id said.
Yeah least I'm not as bad as Micheal Jackson cause I'm actually alive that is duh.
Yeah he didn't have issues he just a ******* amusement park in his back yard .
Me I'd prefer a ******* or maybe a mall yeah don't ask.
Common sense nowadays it makes people laugh and the key to humor is always truth people are all ****** up **** just look at me I'm truly insane I own my own bar I get paid to write I do stand up for free drinks but honestly would you really want me doing anything else?
Attention this is your captain speaking umm look I really don't know how to put this but I forgot to gas up before we left so looks like were all going to die as we crash into the earth and burn to death.
Yeah my bad .
But hey I want to thank you all for flying delta and please remember the do not smoking light is on yeah sure your probably going to be busted into a million pieces but heaven forbid the ***** next to you catches a whiff of smoke before he dies.
Loosen the **** up cause your not going to live forever .
People are so uptight afraid to say **** or disagree with each other cause we all need to think alike like a bunch of ******* lemmings.
I grew up around backwoods rednecks I lived in the city slept in the ******* street okay there's no difference in people except real ******* people aren't scared to **** others off they are who they are and if you like them great and if you don't then ******* life's to dam short to sweat the ******* and this high school mentality needs to truly get ****** the worlds messed up so embrace it .
Like me, Hate me at least you never have to guess what I really think .
Stay crazy kids cause the normal ***** of this life are usually total closet freaks who **** hookers on the side and make bombs in grandmas kitchen .
It's a shame cause a good ****** is a terrible a terrible thing to waste.
Well hamsters until next time this has been your bartender for life with your friendly perverted public service announcement we now return you to your regular scheduled program right smack in the middle so you wont know what the **** happened cause we can nah nah.
And if I somehow offended you please fell free to write to.
Gonzo's complaint department in care of .
105 It's called a ******* joke way .
