Poems Written Early February  2011
POEMS
1.
Pound! Pound! Pound!
"Open the door -
The Moon's trying to get in!"
2.
birds fly over
the bridge
3. (Kid's poem)
Climb up the ladder.
Climb up the tree.
Swing on a branch.
Cling like a leaf.  
4. (Readymade - this is a word for word, 4 line poem, copied from a single prose line
in a Doc Savage pulp novel by Kenneth Robeson "Land of Long JuJu")
Nothing had been discovered
to afford a trace
to the thief who had taken
the teak wood block.
5. (A personal favorite)
see the mouse
run the rafter
see the owl
flying after
6.
"First I'll build
an A-frame house,"
said the architect.
"Then I'll follow it
with 25 more
through the alphabet!"
7. (Essay on Art/Painting)
If you get too fussy,
it looks nervous and anal.
If you get too sketchy,
it looks vague and unsettling.
That artist is best
that works on the bridge
suspended between
the two extremes.
8.
There's a fire in my heart!
Red fire! Molten fire -
fast moving flames
through my veins,
a whirlpool of lava
that polls and pushes -
There's a fire in my heart!
SAYINGS
On the consolidation of the media into about 6 mega corporations -
Remember even Big Brother had 2 competitors!
Hollywood is like high school but with no class.
When you meet someone in a bar, the only thing you have in common is drinking!
How many doors does one wall need?
