“Terms of Service”
A friend recently reminded me of the limited “terms of service” that she came with.
In the background, Ella Fitzgerald climbs a scale that we both saw coming; before the cholla.
No single hiker has ever felt sorry for me; least of all Ella.

i could go to hell
for what i’m doing
for looking at white thighs
in a pair of levis
mama preached hate
don’t talk to white girls
don’t get friendly with them
don’t trust them
even though her best friend
was a white woman
she didn’t want a white man
come to her home
in the middle of the night
complaining about his daughter
being ” corrupted “
you invite me to church

as you take off your blouse
i say, i’ll think about it
i never thought much of jesus freaks
if god is everywhere
then why do we need religion
or a church to get closer
and jesus was not white !
you take off your bra
and your globes succumb to gravity
and they drop downward
and become covered by curly
long red hair
your crucifix makes an imprint
as i press against you
as i kiss you
I have the sudden desire
To eat paint chips, drink turpentine, root around in the garden
For toadstools and mushrooms
Fight a bear. The phone sits in its cradle, refusing to liberate me
From all of the good choices in life that brought me to this point
The conscious good-food choices and intermittent exercise
The firm shake of my head when offered dangerous substances
To ingest, to smoke, to shove up my ass.
There are things I did that could have led me to this point
But it doesn’t seem like there were enough.

Exit through the entrance
Killing is natural according to evolution
Soul sucking bloody Social Darwinism
Killing is a sin
Speaks the great I Am
We are not going in circles
Observe the three dimensional spiral
What have you gone Felix?
A bullet is a door
Bury me in my wife’s garden
A final pardon
Rhymes with it
Snare drum raps
Don’t remember me by this lament
It’s an experiment
Wearing schizophrenic hats
An everlasting buy
Try not to cry
Now repeat the entire process
“Putting You Through Now, Caller.” (13)
“What’s the checklist?
How soon before guts on the freeway?
The hood’ll be spattered.
We’ll be on overdrive six months.”
“By then deadwood’ll be birdless,
Whirlblast sparring Central Park.”

A single mind
Over crowded with different colored emotions
Divided by the even and odds of the feeling
For bravery can’t be without fear and sadness without happiness
But the fear and sadness have switched themselves into a pair
A pair that’s making you push that EMERGENCY EXIT
mother, forgive me for i have sinned i am the monster who will slaughter your daughter and parade her corpse around
I will mutilate her skin, form her a new friend
i will poison her blood, with poisonous T
i will eliminate these lumps, flat chested dreams will someday come true
So open your mind before your mouth
It’s my time to shine, my imprisoning time has been done
I am your son.
