Tumbling from my mouth These honey bees Place them on the lotus bloom And start over again Crumbling from my mouth These honey bees Place them in the storage room And start roaming again Climbing from a mound These hungry bees Praise them for their storage skills And start roaming again Climbing up a hill These hungry thieves Praise them for their storage skills They startled the homing pigeon Clinging to the hill We hunt the thieves Raid them in their foreign schools And starve them from their home and kitchen Tingling in my mouth These honey sweets Raid them from the storage room Then start making more again Tumbling from my mouth These honey bees Place them on the lotus bloom And start over again Welcome one and all to the banquet hall Fashioned on a sonic web That constantly evolves biologically poetic Constellation buzzing like a song

Palms are beginning to sweat (When you I call) Seconds slip through my net Maybe I should forget Maybe I should… Brain waves send a message: pick up the phone Arm is moving now, no longer stone Hand reaches out with a will of its own Pick up the receiver cradled ‘tween fingerbones (When you I call) Numbers lined up listed 0 through 9 Pluck them one by one like fruit on the vine Done dialing then blood turns to wine Kill the connection hang up just in time Numbers lined up listed 0 through 9 Pluck them one by one like fruit on the vine Done dialing then blood turns to wine Maintain connection and stay on the line Ring ring… Ring ring… Brain waves send a message: pick up the line Palms are beginning to sweat Pluck them one by one like fruit on the vine Seconds slip through my net Hand reaches out with a will of its own Maybe I should forget Maintain connection and stay on the phone Maybe I should…

Why do you go Come see the snow Or maybe my thoughts I feel so distraught For reasons I don’t know This myth born of math A mystical path What we perceive Refuse to believe Or stop to catch a breath Why do you go Stay for the show The sky overhead Is turning to red Your halo is aglow Rectangles & circles & squares unaware An angle, a circuit, a dare to be spared Rectangles & circles & squares unaware An angel, a circus, a flare for the air Rectangles turn to circles Circles into squares Squares into each other Apart and unaware An angle burns a circuit A circuit is a dare A dare unto a brother A partner to be spared An angel to a circus A circus made aware A flare for one another A star lit for the air So fly now fly now fly now Goodbye now

I’m so close to space I can almost taste the cream I’ve got no legs I feel no wrong This is my hiding place Smacking away satellites Damned flies That’s the price of a summer night Coasting inside out From up here I really think it might work Have a glass Always being poured Carbon by carbon Quark by Quark Universe by universe by universe

This language is lacking In garbage collecting So now I’ve got a memory leak We need to check the error logs Track down the bug I’ve got a hunch that it’s here in this GOSUB-10 The machines have been drinking From the waters of Lethe So you can’t put them back on the heap Prayers to the Imps and the Lords of Misrule They answered in Lisp Your recursive calls Now it’s crashed and you’ve lost it all

Sherrie Why don’t you love me, baby? I thought we’d get married, Sherrie Since you’ve been gone my song feels wrong I get so lost without Sherrie It’s not like you, baby Since you’ve been gone I feel out of tune And sounding wrong O Sherrie Sherrie I guess we won’t be together We’re not birds of a feather O how I loved you Sherrie

There is a cell in the center of the human head and it is the only cell in your body that never dies (never changes, never regenerates) It is equidistant from the pineal gland (in the brain) the olfactory nerve (top of the nasal cavity) and the optic chiasm (where the right and left optic nerves meet) and every person who has isolated and observed this cell has noted that its shape is strikingly beelike each observer has also died of severe anaphylactic shock before announcing their discovery

Me it’s just me That is all can you believe She and he You and we Everybody needs to see It’s not me Can you see And I tell you don’t believe Is it real That’s the key Don’t be fooled by what you see Look at me Pay a fee To stand this close to your own dream Save the queen She’s just sixteen As she holds a cup of tea O was it something that was said from my mouth O Or is this all just in my head I’ve come to doubt I’ve thought this all before I never wanted more Than just to have my own secret door To someplace I have only read about Look at me pay a fee To stand this close to your own dream Look at me look at me O where has everybody gone I’m just singing a song to me In all the rooms and halls I see through all the walls I feel free Me is it me From my elbow to my knee O to be Or not to be Or from the question turn and flee Look at me Honeybee I will swallow all the sea Plant the seed Bathed in mead From the ancient book I read I traveled far wide and beyond Sailed the sea of stars and broke through the glass of morning dawn Swam through a formless world of clay Till everything around me seemed to shrink and fade away And then before me stood a door It led into a room with lights afloat above a forest floor A spinning volume overhead And from behind my eyes a voice called out and said Look at me Honeybee I will swallow all the sea Plant the seed Bathed in mead From the ancient book I read Trough of greed Is where I feed No matter how you beg and plead Look at me Or not to be I will swallow all but me Look at me it’s just me That is all can you believe ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXY & Z go It’s just me can you believe
