Residual Revelations

(for Sevy Verna)

 

Insanity is not an art project

it is too many pigeons in the coop

 

Forgive me my ideas as you

and never read my words again

 

It’s 4 am and feeling cryptic

and the dead are drinking gaseous life on Jupiter

 

And it’s quiet here on Earth and the loneliness is decadent and near

such a lovely night that it tends to become quixotic

but never tender

never quite

 

And then the rain comes on

like a charging dog with rabid teeth, drooling

rancorous and ready to engulf, enjoy

wipe the world away biblically and all the frenetic pained with it

so that maybe we can start anew

without ever learning from our mistakes
