This collection contains experimental original work inspired by an experimental city–designed from the ground up–and all in the shape of an airplane. Come fly with me.

 

PRESSURIZED ENVIRONMENT


Reclined in a 

turbo boosted,

pressurized and

gin ladened can

of sardines—filled

with submissive

souls, each distinct

but similar

in origin

and destiny.

 

Forward propelled

in upward lift,

until twin chimes

announce stasis.

 

Intermezzo:

orchestrated

by uniformed

conductors of

libations, nuts

and still more gin.

 

Synchronized dreams—

startled fits of

falling asleep

and coming-to.

 

A muffled voice,

twice chimed announced:

the harbinger

of shared descent;

seat-belts fastened,

plunging headlong

(willingly or

unwillingly)

into certain

expectation.

MIXOLOGY


Inspiration is a fickle non-stop

Trickle.

Mesmerizing insights shaken with

Flotsam.

Relevance and irrelevance whisked into 

Vortex.

Muddled viscosity strained through 

Chaos. 

Quenching see-through diluent poured 

Amply.

Held by carbon-bound chalices

Freely.

I Go About My Day Pretending


That I am not—

 

careening

throughout the universe

in haphazard

precision.

 

meandering

about my living years

in cavalier

distraction.

 

spiraling

unto max-transcendence

in under-baked

potentiality.
