RC Miller – 3 poems



I call back your frightened spirit.
Mexican poon straddles my ghost in a room.
The quiet creek turns to ruin
Ten thousand dials from Jesus.

A mosquito then gray and stormy weather.
Like a sack of onions, long live answers to emptiness
Likely to move pause move pause.
And now the mosquito’s dirt.

Your enlightened spirit calls my money mine.
We head into a club and we start dancing
A continued real life postcard use.
February furnishes the eye of the boar.

The poison moves pauses moves pauses:
Perhaps I am the spider in a dot.
And maybe my sister dares oblivion
Stuck to mad wanderers filled with fingerprints.

The quiet ghost turns to Jesus, who’s straddling a sack of lava.
He blesses me ten thousand hours of ruin for use in my house.
A mosquito holds a stone’s sneeze.
Away it soars, away it soars toward the light of no where else.




I scratch my clothes and fatten them alive.
A skull full of black beans marches since ancient times.
Grosz fell down a flight of stairs drunk and died.
His red tattoo carves my nose.

Long shed girlfriends stir above a cracked owl.
That’s the slaying of the snail.
Satan flies in the snake like grass.
Arms come off of arms and rain big beets.

I grow immortal through my idleness.
I grow all the time I’ve spent in food.
Reigning sounds bitch
Silent wild silver wind where the ambulance won’t come.
Small hours are my horrifying it.




I fall out of my moat.
Heaven never ends.
I can’t tell anyone
How the light locks and unlocks.

I get distracted by Danica’s penis problem.
I belong to the eternal exhaustion of silhouettes.
A drawing by an old Chinese master trusts
Best Buy so babies die.

This year we’re fighting and last year we fought.
Drifting skyward’s a stinking thing.
I must be suffering from going on.
Old friendships collect the honey.

Old friendships approach humps and boils.
Nature says I have an unpaid bill in every petal.
I tell silhouettes my pulse locks but never ends.
Congratulations, we’ll take your clothes to the pawnshop.
