Step Out of the Click

See a star, a simple bird
Feel your feet
Hold the moon in your palms
Put down their toys
and make your own

No guns for war
No bombs for Christ
Mohammed or the rest

You are the children
the violins, the strings
Let go the horns, the drums
the simple dawn

Walk the halls
the alleys, the steps
the avenues 
Hold hands with friends
Walk the forest
Say owl
hummingbird and dog

Talk to rabbits and ants
and monkeys in the sky
Listen to their stories
and simple days
of cross word puzzles
scratch pads
leaves blowing
waiting for
waiting to
love the moment
that is you

Tomorrow beholds
rhubarb, eggs
maple syrup

Look at that tree 
Watch it sway
Know the apple
tastes best if
tree veins freeze

You are the cloud
the magic wand
the simple walk
on this amazing

You are the children
Hold this world
Breathe, listen

Of Course?

Louie the orange
maker found
a rind of his own

And why would
Napoleon be jealous
of George Bush?

When did the leaves
become salmon

Who is the breath
Of the moon

Where did the bear
find the leftover grapes

How did the Iraqi mouse
find the French fries

Look at the signal
in your left ear

Sniggle Fritz did
not invent underwear

What kind of ape
would suck an oil well?

On the other hand
if you were born
with a carburetor
in your mouth
you could if you wish
spit it out and walk.

A child’s smile is
worth more than
an oil well

When the red ant
falls out of the
Money market
and eats some KFC

He stood in the window
waiting to be found
and he was

He kept shadows
in his right eye 

Rabish Fleemsha bought
the cigar store Indian
with balloon payments

Schmooze the aviator likes
marshmallows with his
chicken feet

Effervescent Charley
Sold gas pumps
To Chinese chipmunk vendors

All along the way
Sounds of tortillas clapping

As a matter of fact
The burritos cheered

Ever since Momma
found the rat poison
Daddy’s shut his trap

The incarceration
of Aesop’s Lizard
is eminent

Wrap you bread
In anti vibrant bags

The long gray owl
Wore no beak

When do we expect the
sojourn of expensive
parakeets to emerge?

Why should we pay
For laminated

He made a living selling
chloral hydrate
to misplaced honeybees

And You?
