—for Ricardo

I b well enough

Work’s fairly regular— ’bout 4-5 hours a day at TSA,
plus a couple of side jobs drawing
lucky (to have work)
chug chug

Keeping my hand in the writing game:
blogs, two local paper gigs
shooting my mouth off at greedy vampire windmills sucking global blood
Working at finishing the downstairs room under the kitchen

Haven’t been writing poems though
It comes it goes
Breath flows till it won’t—
interesting set of circumstances without comprehensible explanation
mysterious as the sun shooting through nowhere
lifting us on swells of gravity

—it rose again today!
happy and bright
shining on silvery frost
bright and beautifuller
than any precious metal
a commodities speculator might hoard
grass beneath more verdant and moist
than the greenest lust of a banker
air crisper than a fresh
thousand dollar bill

as breathable as necessary
as fine
as sweet
..
…’bout you?
