James Mirarchi – 1 poem



selection of car crash passengers
born again thru windshields:

car crash # 9760
reborn in sky
as upside down piano
with tongue hanging out
bleeding music profusely

car crash # 423
reborn as jesus
crucified by rainstorm of swordfish
acupuncture iconography
for new dimension of acolytes

car crash # 688
reborn as tron grid
with hardboiled eggs as soil
begets rabbit gangsters & goggled babies

car crash # 2222
reborn as father knows best slut
gyrating provocatively
in laser hula-hoop

car crash # 1024
reborn as giant mime
with trees for fingers
& clouds for stitches
pisses spermicidal mirrors
sutures tear open
spilling out chili oceans

car crash # 837
reborn as elderly nun
plucking pubic hair feathers
from sexy pheasant

this junkyard afterlife can be reached
via the president’s asshole wormhole
