1. His Changeable Views
Winds whistle to him “Find a partner,
Soon, soon, get to the inner circle,
Don’t be denied, become the insider.
Join the world wide network access
To the rosy, copper colored cosmos.
Mind over matter, hand over hand,
The doh-see-doh, the reel of hands,
Input the matter, further discussion,
Never-mind over matters, deliberate
Or table this conversation for now.
Fair is fair in the lavender and blue,
Beauty always seeking her best light,
Rejuvenate an airy caprice romance.
Declare the cerebral syrup of love,
Forget the sauna and the kinky oils.
Love’s whispers are over his head
Beyond his candlelit presumptions.
Every amorous affair is an interview,
Hire a hall, the more the merrier,
Order more gifts, find that partner!
2. His Catalytic Role
“I am the harmonic balance in the
Cosmic order of things, the spherical
Music, the charming lyric, lightness
Of airy arts and ethereal expression.
I supply the endless castles of cloud
while you supply the mortar and brick
or the backside of labor and pains.
I smile across the sky itself and
Reason with serene justice, worlds
At my feet and right hand, diversity
And the human smelt works, blind,
Disabled, multi-racial, gay or not,
I take them into my law chambers,
Give liberties and judgments to all.
I am the magic stuff in the laughing
Gas, the oxygenating catalyst that
Binds the disparate parts together.
Come and dine with us, admire
Symmetrical bones and polished
Manners, perfect my indulgence
With a novel treat, new tastes, new
Songs from each new chord I learn.
3. Charm To Calm Your Serpents
Like spaghetti wires in a gadget
Of the brave age techno jungle,
Nerve endings lie down with him
In wait for a smooge response,
That dribble of understanding
Produced unawares, your dutiful
Rapport and compliant nature
Newly fashioned out of thin air.
Call it seduction, he symbolizes
Sexual compatibility, clothes-off
Honesty. Feeling lucky, he knows
You possess something of value
That you didn’t know you had.
Flea markets, drop shipments,
Welcome to long-shot paradise,
Where phantoms flesh out skids
And pallets with usable goods,
Where reality and fantasy exist
In bubble form packing, beyond
Harsh right angles of solid truth.
4. His Unmanned Voyages
The Complex technical task of
Probing the love planet reveals a
World of multifaceted individuals
Stranded by divorce, unnerved
By malicious relational static and
Babble, the struggle to heal gone
Dark with data and purpose, too
Obscure to analyze with a careful
Ear or a watchful eye, a profound
Smell of friendship roasting on a
Burning altar of twisted devotions.
When the right answers come are
Your prayers abandoned? What
Happens to the pain that creates
A new perspective? How do you
Wrestle with the forces you resist
In order to survive? Feather-heart
Must conquer all or die in the test.
