Billy Cancel – 2 poems


   rockaBILLY whole world gone CANCELed
zigzagging patterns agitated    displacements
considerable skills employed by    some throwaway
gag trace affirmative     on behalf of all
water fleas  am wishing     you a happy fault in the
optical superstructure     woke up this morning so
bad i pollinated one of my    verses mistaking it for a
real poem    have to visit 3 country fairs &    a goat
fucking just to come to the captain’s attention    please
send dronized ball cutter     on my behalf     should  i be
needed upon     decomposition row    no see ‘em
central     they have a knack of thinking big    do not
cancel the tasars        sky farmer upon the stirrups     turbo
twat cleaning a trumpet     my husband a
watercolor     so i tangle assholes with some
wandering star    who has a good voice to
beg bacon     & utters     billy-no-stars does not
belong to greater london     bar-the
-door-katy        is a small
difference a way out?



   born a bit tired in a haunted shithouse
with a sack full of kit     that still needs wiring
up     hence i frequently drop titles of
reference for numeric code    i.e.
your bags open i didn’t say nothing is
now     9/21/15 &     gold royal deep blue 9/22/15     but
since becoming a friend of    pedro i cannot go
back to meadow
mayonnaise         extreme close up then     extreme
angle take    another low octane mascot     lit
up like broadway    leaning against
the engine because     collective left    the door
open            they could not help but
     become tangled up in     the good stuff     which
explains why that lay-out     across the drink is
now protected     by the red blue green with
a key    might yet slip into my roach stompers &
make a swim for it         later in slow town
     rasping  gang gets something on someone & if
you want the whole megillah     my ass sucks blue mud
